If you run a factory, a warehouse, a manufacturing plant, or even just a building with an HVAC system, partnering with an industrial automation provider like RL Consulting can supercharge your operations.
The Main Benefits Of Integrated Industrial Automation
Systems integration specialists work with you to assess your needs, then they design and implement time- and effort-saving automated solutions for your work processes.
Activities like welding, painting, packing, drilling, delivery, and assembly are just a few examples of things your business can do better, faster, and more safely with integrated systems automation.
And the results?
- Increased productivity
- Greater efficiency
- A safer work environment
Companies that do manufacturing, packaging, or storage are well-positioned to achieve these outcomes. Yours could be too.
That’s why we’ve put together this guide to the types of businesses that should be thinking seriously about process automation in 2023.
But first: Here’s a quick refresh on what industrial automation integration is and how we do it at RL Consulting.
What Do Automation Integrators Do?
As an automation provider, we use programmable logic controllers (PLCs) to take over your work processes, installations, or equipment and automate them, so that they do what they’ve always done (if that’s what you want!) — only better.
What Are Programmable Logic Controllers?
PLCs are small industrial computers — think of them as the brains of your factory or building.
A good systems integrator company can hook these brains up to any automated processes you already have and enhance them. Or they can design and install new systems from scratch.
At RL Consulting, we offer both these services, as well as
- End-to-end project management
- Training on new systems for your employees
- Ongoing maintenance and support
So, Could An Industrial Automation Consultant Help Your Business?
If your success depends on things like pumps, motors, valves, breakers, conveyor belts, cranes, storage systems, HVAC systems, or elevators, then a control systems integrator can help you future-proof it.
In the 20 years since RL Consulting was established, our programmable automation expertise has made significant wins for clients in the following sectors:
- Food and beverage (oil refining, pet food)
- Pulp and paper (tissue, paper, and board)
- Pharmaceuticals (packaging for pills and liquid medicines)
- Metal (steel and aluminum)
- Rubber (mixing, hoses, and extrusions)
And there are countless other applications too. For example, in the automotive and construction industries, aerospace and defense, transportation and logistics, energy and utilities, and even in hospitals.
Choosing an Industrial Automation Integrator
Finding and hiring the right manufacturing automation provider helps you ready your operations for whatever’s coming next, while protecting your employees.
It’s an investment in productivity and efficiency that ultimately protects your bottom line, because you get to do more of what you do best and you get to do it faster, with fewer manual interventions.Your employees also have less physical contact with high-risk equipment and processes.
