21 Ways You Can Reach Your Productivity Potential
Productivity through Process Improvement
Productivity through Precision
Productivity through Predictability
Productivity through Practicality and Quality Assurance
Adhesives and materials with ratings such as UL94 V-0, ISO 10993, or USP Class VI, offer proven abilities to international standards. We help you meet the requirements of IP68 and ATEX with material selection advice.
The flowplus16 pressure sensor is simple to install in-line, and gives real-time assessment of your dispensing process, detecting voids, bubbles and clogs.
Technologies like Dymax’s See-Cure colour change on cure and Ultra-Red fluorescence enable quality assurance on adhesive and coating application and cure, enhancing both manual and automatic inspection processes.
Our Technical Team can combine multiple processes into a single push-button operation. We will integrate these assembly technologies onto our robot platform, providing you with a turnkey system.
We help you make your people more effective by improving conditions – taking away RSI risks or removing solvent-bearing materials from the workplace. With simple benchtop machines right up to full automation, you can reallocate operators to more productive tasks.
Productivity through Progression
18. Process driven
Our focus is on providing you with products which deliver a production output that meets your commercial objectives and which perform reliably day after day after day. We understand the importance of your process, and will help you optimise it for quality and consistency.
We recognise that often the NPI process means that production starts small, ramping up with success. Our surface treatment, mixing, dispensing and curing products start at the benchtop level, and are expandable and able to be integrated into automation for scale up in the future.
Productivity through Proven Outcomes
20. Let’s get going
With our sampling, evaluations, trials, tests, demonstrations, rentals and laboratory reports, we take risk out of your specification decision. With our installation and training services, we assist you in getting your process ticking like clockwork as soon as possible, helping you on the road to improved productivity.
