Automation

Dzineia provides complete Industrial Automation Solutions using modern technologies available in the present competitive market. We strongly believe in designing and developing our products using the latest technologies and methodologies to bring out the best performance of our products. Customer satisfaction and equipment user’s safety is our topmost priority and hence we strictly adhere ourselves to the Industrial Standards while designing and developing our products to ensure performance, efficacy and efficiency. At the same time we also ensure that our products are environmental friendly and are safe to the users, provided our products are used as directed in the documentation of the product. We design standard quality products that operate smoothly and have a higher production rate. Our expertise in design and development of Open Loop and Closed Loop Control Systems helps us achieve maximum performance of our products.

At Dzineia, we first gather the required information from our customers and carry out a small but vital research ourselves about the process or the systems that needs to be automated before concluding the type of control that needs to be implemented. We also expertize in suggesting our customers about the suitable changes or modifications in the automation process that would lead to a better control of the systems(s) and hence the development of a great product. We offer both ON/OFF control as well as Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) control for Closed Loop systems using Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and Microcontroller.

Automation or automatic control is the use of various control systems for operating equipment such as machinery, processes in factories, boilers and heat treating ovens, switching on telephone networks, steering and stabilization of ships, aircraft and other applications and vehicles with minimal or reduced human intervention. Some processes have been completely automated. The biggest benefit of automation is that it saves labour; however, it is also used to save energy and materials and to improve quality, accuracy and precision. Automation can be achieved by various means including mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical, electronic devices and computers, usually in combination. Complicated systems, such as modern factories, airplanes and ships typically use all these combined techniques.

The main advantages of automation are:

  • Increased throughput or productivity
  • Improved quality or increased predictability of quality.
  • Improved robustness (consistency), of processes or product.
  • Increased consistency of output.
  • Reduced direct human labour costs and expenses.

The following methods are often employed to improve productivity, quality, or robustness.

    • Install automation in operations to reduce cycle time
    • Install automation where a high degree of accuracy is required
    • Replacing human operators in tasks that involve hInstall automation where a high degree of accuracy is required
    • Replacing humans in tasks done in dangerous environments (i.e. fire, space, volcanoes, nuclear facilities, underwater, etc
    • Performing tasks that are beyond human capabilities of size, weight, speed, endurance, etc
    • Reduces operation time and work handling time significantly
    • Provides higher level jobs in the development, deployment, maintenance and running of the automated processes

Another major shift in automation is the increased demand for flexibility and convertibility in manufacturing processes. Manufacturers are increasingly demanding the ability to easily switch from manufacturing Product A to manufacturing Product B without having to completely rebuild the production lines. Flexibility and distributed processes have led to the introduction of Automated Guided Vehicles with Natural Features Navigation. Digital electronics has helped a lot in development of Automation Products. Former analogue-based instrumentation was replaced by digital equivalents which can be more accurate and flexible, and offer greater scope for more sophisticated configuration, parameterization and operation. This was accompanied by the fieldbus revolution which provided a networked (i.e. a single cable) means of communicating between control systems and field level instrumentation, eliminating hard-wiring

Discrete manufacturing plants adopted these technologies fast. The more conservative process industries with their longer plant life cycles have been slower to adopt and analogue-based measurement and control still dominates. The growing use of Industrial Ethernet on the factory floor is pushing these trends still further, enabling manufacturing plants to be integrated more tightly within the enterprise, via the internet if necessary. Global competition has also increased demand for Reconfigurable Manufacturing Systems.
