E2i's interactive tool welcomes you into the virtual world of manufacturing automation, by way of a water-bottling plant. Through our animated environment we share an in-depth look into the services we provide and the benefits of a systems integrator. For a manufacturing 101 synopsis scroll down the page.
What is Manufacturing Automation?
Since the 1930s, manufacturing automation has proven to be a transformative leap forward, bringing about vast improvements in product quality, consistency, and accuracy, as well as the reduction of labor costs, material consumption, and energy use. E2i offers a suite of integrated services for you to carry out objectives with minimal, to reduced human involvement and oversight.
Maintaining consistency in product-making
A well-constructed process reduces numerous factors that can degrade efficacy. Many plants today still use manually-operated machinery, due in part to the misconception that the cost is something they cannot afford. Computerized precision allows you to output products with unparalleled consistency—even with minimal supervision—and ensures accuracy and reproducible outcomes. We'll be happy to show you why it's too expensive not to upgrade your system and to provide you with "the HOW," to stay ahead of your competition.
E2i's automation, validation and intelligence solutions are developed to be perpetually reliable. Specialized equipment, sensors, and streaming data must be compiled and designed to function harmoniously, in/on a diversely-integrated network. Reducing a factory’s cycle times not only increases productivity, but also it's cost savings and uptime. Let us show you how our meaning of "downtime" is vastly different than yours. As we build-in streamlined process controls, you can relax knowing that E2i has your back every step of the way.
Regulating process using Big Data intelligence
In a setting as complex as a plant or global supply chain, a process automation system (PAS) can monitor a multitude of performance values and output quality. The data that's derived and processed from your Historian allows continued system refinement. Turn-key modifications are only possible when software and hardware have the ability to leverage the intelligence that analysis and transformation of data can provide: greatly improving the efficiency and ROI of any manufacturing site.
Speed and consistency breeds safety and reliability
Fully-automated environments equal repeatable precision and speed, offsetting the hazards your staff could face in a manufacturing and assembly environment. Leaving hazardous tasks to machinery keeps employees out of harm’s way, but so does ensuring that commissioning and qualification happens along the full spectrum. E2i's recipe for success also includes network debugging for distributed I/O, monitoring capabilities from one controller, critically-placed RFID technology, and software and equipment virtualization made possible using our customizable simulators.
How smart should your manufacturing be?
An ever-changing and highly-competitive market demands that quality products be made faster and cheaper. This can only be achieved through a smart, scalable system and a systems integrator that stands on that cutting edge. We hope that you enjoyed our Manufacturing 101 tour and it has provided you with a clear overview of what you can expect from E2i: your industry-proven systems integrator.
