As the most basic automation equipment in the production field, the automatic locking screw machine is often not taken seriously, because the automatic locking screw machine only replaces the manual lock screwing.
However, the automatic locking screw machine is an indispensable part of the automation industry, especially considering that human labors with machines should be first resolved in the industries with low automation in China. Thus, the automatic locking screw machine has huge advantages. Compared with the robot, the automatic locking screw machine costs much less. Also, replacing the traditional manual screwing can help lots of small- and medium-sized enterprises solve the shortage of human resources.
Advantages of the automatic locking screw machine:
1. Reducing secondary pollution which is caused by hand removal of screws and workpiece at the time of manually locking screws.
2. Reducing the labor intensity of workers.
3. The high degree of automation is conducive to enhancing the image of the Company.
4. Compared to industrial robots, the automatic locking screw machine costs low.
5. Improving work efficiency: Compared with the manual lock screw, as for the automatic locking screw machine, there is no step of hand removal of screws, thus saving unit time.
With regard to the current production status of some enterprises, in the labor-intensive enterprises in the industries such as toys, 3C, communication equipment, small household appliances, and so on, an operator always uses a wind or electric screwdriver on one hand and grasps a screw to lock it on the other hand.
When one hand makes the necessary actions for locking a screw, such as “grabbing, moving, waiting, aligning”, it takes one-third or more of the time required for locking a screw. Especially for screws of stainless steel or copper and other ones that cannot be attracted by a magnet, it takes more time, which inevitably lowers the productivity.
Therefore, for a long time, how to improve the speed of locking a screw is a very difficult problem faced by every member of enterprise grassroots management, and this is also an important issue of how to realize the automation of the production line.
The most common method used by most manufacturers to increase the production capacity of a screw station is to improve the worker's proficiency and increase the number of stations and the number of operators. The increase of the operators’ number will directly lead to an increase in production cost, management cost and other costs such as labor, rent, utilities, taxes, insurance and so on. To this end, it is an effective solution to use an automatic locking screw machine that saves manpower and increases production line capacity.
The development prospect of the automatic locking screw machine, the idea of new production mode is the driving force of enterprise reform driven by profit. In today's free competitive market environment, to improve the competitiveness of enterprises, besides quality assurance, there is no other essentials but improvement of corporate profits and reduction of production cost. To cut down costs, an enterprise must start with its internally controllable information as an improvement target, such as labor, equipment and management costs.
From the above analysis, it can be seen that the operation mode of changing manual locking of screws to use of the automatic screw machine to lock screw can maximize the production efficiency and reduce the production cost.
