TF Automation working with manufacturers to provide bespoke process automation solutions
TF Automation design, engineer and manufacture process automation solutions as well as supplying pneumatic and industrial components. Supporting a wide range of manufacturing industries from automotive, aerospace and pharmaceutical, to food and beverage, printing and packaging, we provide special purpose machinery designed to clients’ bespoke requirements.
Our projects range from full manufacturing units to specialist components all engineered to integrate fully with existing production lines. Our engineering and design expertise is extensive and we offer the latest technology across a wide range of disciplines including pneumatics, robotics, automated assembly, in-mould labelling, pick and place and leak testing, with process automation as our core focus.
We deliver a wide range of automation solutions for clients, from bench-top checking/gauging fixtures to multiple 6 Axis robotic pick & place systems. We also have particular expertise working with plastic components including assembly, machining and finishing, and in-mould labelling.
All projects are carried out in-house, including concept design created in Solidworks 3D CAD, CNC machining, manufacturing (mechanical and electrical), testing, commissioning and programming. Where we do bring in expertise and components, we source only the most renowned and innovative brands, ensuring that all materials and components meet strict quality standards.
We work with some of the largest manufacturers in their respective fields, all requiring product handling and automation solutions to support some of the world’s leading brands particularly in the aerospace and automotive industries. Consistency, improved production efficiency and precision are our clients’ key drivers, with the majority of our projects concentrating on improving product handling and automating manual-handling processes. Our focus is on supplying machines that improve quality standards and product consistency as well as improving output and reliability.
The need to improve process and productivity is a constant challenge for all manufacturer. Our focus is on providing solutions to reduce the risk of human error in tasks that are constant, predictable and repetitive. We engineer and program our machines to perform tasks over and over again, offering accuracy and repeatability far superior to the same task carried out manually, thus ensuring increased output and efficiency.
Component assembly and testing is a crucial part of many of our clients’ manufacturing processes. Using the latest pneumatic and linear drive technology, we design systems to include multiple testing stations including vision, force and distance with checks in place to reject non-compliant components.
With over 40 years’ experience, our strength is in our assessment and understanding of the requirements of each project, end user and operative. As a Tier 2 supplier, we take the time to consider all possible solutions for clients, ensuring that both their expectations and their clients’ are met and the optimum solution provided.
