Automated Conveyor Systems
Automated conveyor systems are the most basic element of modern factory machines. First introduced into the marketplace in the early part of the 20th century by Henry Ford for use in production of the Model T automobile, automated conveyor systems sped up production and made it easier. Putting a long line of people along the moving belt, each with a specific job to do, made it possible to produce a dozen or more cars in a typical workday. The introduction of the conveyor system completely revolutionized modern factory machinery.
Automated Conveyor Systems Are Just the Beginning
While automated conveyor systems are an essential part of most manufacturing facilities, they are not the only element. Today's manufacturing is far more complex than the assembly lines of old. In fact, humans aren't present on assembly lines in nearly the numbers they once were. Modern production machines have taken over many of the functions humans used to perform in manufacturing. This has increased speed, efficiency and accuracy in production, as machines do not get tired and do not develop repetitive strain injuries.
Customized parts are almost always required for today's businesses. This is because of the astonishing number of highly unique, patented product designs. Often, entirely new production systems have to be created to produce new consumer goods. This has led to a rise in the number of companies that build custom manufacturing parts. Feed Rite Automation has been making a variety of manufacturing parts, from vibratory feeder bowls to storage hoppers to conveyors, for nine years.
