In the production industry, many of practitioners complain the repetitive work. They are inefficient and tiring most of the times. Almost every one wants to escape it and improve the situation. But the question is -how?
How can we change this as there is no innovation and better management，and how are we going to achieve that goal. I believe, with dedicated study of the production process and constant learning in new technology we can achieve it.
For instance, one century ago, there probably no harvester and others machines for farming, but just in the lasted century, we human beings developed all sorts of farming machines. Innovations are keep coming and new technology has been applied to it. Today, it’s so easy to find the farming machine that you want and is perfect for your requirement.
In the cable production industry, we are luckily to have the latest coiling and packing machine. This is actually a line contains coiling process and strapping and packaging process.
With this functional machine, this is no need to move the cable or coils back and forth. Cable will be coiled just after come out from the production line then will be delivered to strapping station by conveyors then to stretch wrapping or bagging station then into the shrink tunnel. Just in few minutes, a well packed cable coil will come out from the end of the line without any interference of human.
This really is a difference, not just for saving your labor cost, but also improving your capacity. If you don’t agree, please think about all the repetitive work you do everyday.
Sometimes, in our lives, you just can not image what that some little gadgets can bring to us.
When we talk about sewing, an image might come to our brain “a lady running a sewing machine, loading fabrics, sewing, cutting thread”. Yes, this is the stereotype that most peopel have. But, today it might have changed. Thanks to the constant innovation in the industry, today’s sewer no longer need to cut the thread manually. A little blade has been adopted to the sewing machine and it cuts the thread automatically when the sewer down their sewing. Half work load has been reduced, just a little blade. How that comes? you might want to ask. Yes, that’s ture. Before the change, sewers need to stop the machine and cut the thread by a pair of scissors manually. And sometimess for doing this easier, sewers will leave the thread for very long. That needs to be cut twice, but nowaday’s auotmatic sewing machine won’t have this problem. So, half work load be reduced is not an exageration.
Today, in the packing industry people also found what they can innovate to improve the efficiency.
This is the pneumatic device attached on horizontal stretch wrapper for cutting the stretch film.
With this device, the operator on longer need to cut the stretch film manually, and this allows the machine to run in a faster speed. No bending, no cutting and it even can load the packaging material automatically. You can image how much time this going to save. If the machine has motor controlled conveyors and combined with production line this even could save two laborers.
It just as we always say, you don’t know what potential impact that some be ignored small thing can bring. With our innovative mind, high capacity doesn’t mean it has to be large.
