New Technology Evaluation

Innomation helps manufacturers test and evaluate automation technology before investments are made. The intent is to make sure the right technology is purchased and deployed-eliminating the risk of performance deficiencies and additional costs once the machinery is installed. During the evaluation process, the technology is assessed from various perspectives:

Does the machinery meet the performance and productivity requirements?

How does the machinery fit into the existing layout?

How will the machinery integrate with existing automation equipment?

Does the machine meet or exceed the safety and hygiene standards?

How will the machinery be serviced if there are issues?

Can the existing operational and maintenance manpower handle the new technology?

Are existing utilities sufficient? Does the machine need any special precautions or back-ups?

Can the machine handle existing deviations in terms of quality & throughput of upstream equipment?
