Repairs and modernization of industrial machines

Adapting the machine park to specific needs does not always require the purchase of new machines, equipment or production lines.
THE MTA company performs the most complex repairs of industrial machines or modernizes them in accordance with European standards and directives.
Depending on your needs, we carry out:

  • comprehensive renovation
  • comprehensive modernization
  • we adapt older devices to new needs
  • we retrofit machines or completely automate them During the work, we
    imply the latest technologies and use materials from the best manufacturers, regenerate damaged elements, and when this is not possible, we replace them with new ones. We work with the most modern, specialized equipment. All works are always discussed in detail with the client, both in terms of their scope and cost. We present several variants of the proposed solutions to choose from.

Design of industrial machinery

If it becomes necessary to acquire a completely new, often unusual device to improve the production process, MTA offers a comprehensive creation of such devices, from design to assembly. We have a qualified staff of instructors who use one of the leading tools for designing and modeling in a 3D environment – SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD. Hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical schematic designs are carried out with the EPLAN Electric P8 software, which guarantees the highest precision of workmanship. The client has access to the documentation at every stage of the project, and this allows for the ongoing introduction of possible changes and has a positive effect on the final effect.

Why is it worth implementing automation of production processes?

Automation of production brings many benefits to plants focused on manufacturing activities. The implementation of modern solutions in this area allows primarily to increase efficiency and precision in production processes and provides a number of other benefits that are worth pointing out and taking into account when strategically managing the company's development. Here are the main groups of arguments:

Efficiency, precision and stability of automated production processes

Machines in most cases allow you to carry out production processes much faster than people. In addition, the risk of mistakes is much lower – especially for tasks that require very high precision. Machines always work in the same way, and accuracy does not decrease with the time of production processes.

The way employees perform their tasks, as well as their efficiency, are characterized by great diversity. It is also worth mentioning that due to many factors, the staff may not be fully available, e.g. in a situation where an employee takes leave on demand.

In the case of an automated machine park, the stability of production processes is therefore much higher. Machines always work with the same performance, they are almost always ready for operation. On the other hand, faults and failures appear in their case extremely rarely.

Thanks to the stability of production processes, it is also possible to better predict the number of manufactured products in a given month, thanks to which planning, for example, the delivery of materials, is much more effective and facilitated.

Summarizing the above considerations, the following benefits associated with linking automation to production management strategies should be enumerated in points:

  • Speed of implementation
  • High error-free and precise execution of elements or systems
  • Constant rhythm and efficiency of the production process
  • Stability of efficiency
  • Relatively high or very high independence from absenteeism or shortage of workers in the labour market
  • High planning and predictability of production results
  • Convenient logistics of materials and prefabricated elements dependent on predictable processes
  • Low failure rate of production line systems

It is worth noting, however, that especially the last mentioned factor: the reliability of the system, results primarily from the implementation of automation of production processes by an experienced and reliable company. That is why we recommend ourselves for the implementation of demanding orders. The brand we have been working for for years (MTA) is the appropriate competence required for technically advanced orders related to production automation.

Increasing ergonomics and safety at the production site thanks to industrial automation

Another very important benefit of implementing automated production in the enterprise is to increase the ergonomics of work. More physically or mentally demanding production processes can be performed by machines. In turn, employees in this case are delegated to lighter tasks. This undoubtedly also translates into greater staff satisfaction with working conditions.

Some tasks related to production are characterized by a high degree of threat to the health or life of employees. The ability to carry out these processes by modern and automated machines therefore translates directly into increased personnel safety.

Listing further arguments in favor of production automation in the context of process ergonomics, we will calculate:

  • Ability to differentiate production processes in terms of effort, time and accuracy requirements
  • Possibility to relieve employees
  • Improving people's health and safety at work

Integration of machine and worker work

It should be remembered that the purpose of automation is not to replace the human factor in manufacturing plants with machines, but to integrate them. For this reason, modern machine parks should take into account all issues related to their intuitive operation – this is also an important aspect of improving production processes in the company.

Creating synergy between employees and automated machine parks guarantees measurable benefits for both the staff and the company itself.

Summarizing the points of this paragraph, we will add to the advantages of automation:

  • Integration of specialist and machine activities and improvement of production results
  • Scalability of processes requiring professional support

Optimization of production costs

Undoubtedly, the introduction of production automation to the enterprise requires large investments, which, however, pays off from day one. The development of automation in the enterprise over time translates into an increase in the profitability of the plant. It is also worth remembering that the introduction of such solutions results in a reduction in costs, and at the same time very often an increase in the quality of the final product.

Last, important factors included in the unquestionable advantages of automation:

  • Increasing the profitability of processes
  • Sustainable, ergonomic use of materials and energy resources
  • Improving the quality of the final product

Automation of production processes in your plant

As you can see, the implementation of industrial automation is a multi-stage, logistic undertaking. The article tried to present the arguments directly influencing the strategic decision to introduce solutions in this area. An equally important undertaking is a well-prepared implementation project and the quality of its implementation.

The full success of automation is primarily due to the experience and competence of the company that carries out such implementation. It requires an understanding of the needs of a given company, the right design, as well as supported by experience and professional implementation solutions. For this reason, we cordially encourage you to cooperate with MTA – a company with over 20 years of experience in industrial automation.

Automation of production processes is a solution implemented in many industries. It guarantees a number of benefits, and for many plants it is the foundation for development. It can be assumed that production automation is the field that represents the future of the industrial sector. So we recommend ourselves for this future.

The use of lasers in mass production

Metal is one of the raw materials most commonly used in mass production. Most often these are different types of steel and aluminum alloys, which find their application in the manufacture of profiles, pipes, and then larger structures. However, the production of these elements on a mass scale requires appropriate technologies, among which laser cutting machines are beginning to play a leading role, which to the greatest extent meet the expectations associated with this type of production.

  • Fast work – the production of a huge number of pieces requires rapid, automated production,
  • High quality of products – precision and aesthetics of every detail is a distinguishing feature of components created as a result of high precision of laser cutting.
  • Repeatability – advanced technologies allow you to obtain precisely made elements with given parameters,
  • Low production costs – energy efficiency of these solutions and low operating costs translate into an affordable production price,
  • Precision of manufacturing – however complicated the element may be, the laser cuts it exactly according to the pattern, which allows you to obtain precise elements and small and accurate holes.

Press brake – principle of operation and application in the automation of production processes

The press brake is today one of the most commonly used CNC tools in metalworking (digitally controlled by a computer). It performs the bending function by controlling the stroke of the slider and the rear meter. When using a press brake in CNC technology, the operator enters only the number of lobes requiring bending and the bending angles required for each operation, and the press performs them automatically according to the programmed instructions.

The advanced CNC press brake uses an electrical-hydraulic system in conjunction with a lattice ruler to create a closed control system. With these solutions, the press offers a high degree of control, accuracy of bends and initial settings.

Laser sheet metal cutting – what are the benefits?

Sheet metal cutting with a laser is used to obtain a specific shape of various types of materials. Machining of this type is extremely precise, and thus popular in industry. This process is possible thanks to the energy produced by the laser beam. Beam energy performs sheet metal cutting by melting, melting and evaporating or melting and burning the material. If you need to use this type of service – the best choice is MTA Automation!

Sheet metal cutting – advantages

  • The process of cutting sheet metal is extremely fast – it takes a few seconds. The components produced in this way are in most cases suitable for use and installation.
  • Extremely high use of material – the precision with which the laser works is exceptional. This allows you to save and produce a small amount of waste. This is due to the fact that the laser can almost completely use the treated sheet,
  • Laser cutting machining is perfect. No additional material treatment is needed. There are no irregularities on them, and their surface is flat, smooth and uniform.
  • Modern method – laser cutting of sheet metal is performed using the latest technologies. As a result, we can constantly improve this method and coordinate according to the needs of the updating market and industry.
  • The possibility of laser cutting of various materials – it is possible to process many grades of steel, aluminum, copper, glass, wood or plastics. Such multidimensionality means that laser cutting is associated with many enterprises, industries and sectors,
  • Durability of laser devices – means that laser parts that make cuts do not need to be replaced. This makes the device just as efficient for a significant amount of time.

Sheet metal cutting – 3 ways of execution

  1. Reactive cutting – depending on the material, oxygen streams and chemical mixtures containing argon or oxygen are used. In this way, heat is created, which makes laser cutting more effective than other types of machining.
  2. Cutting with the use of cracks – machining, which is based on making breaks in the material. This is possible thanks to laser beams, which make a given fragment of the metal surface reach a very high temperature. This method is mainly used in materials above a thickness of 1 mm.
  3. Cutting – liquid state – a method used mainly in such metals as: aluminum, magnesium, cobalt or titanium – i.e. they are used wherever there are metals of high alloys. This way of cutting allows you to thoroughly clean the surface.
