Challenge
A large automotive supplier builds brake lines for multiple industries. The company wanted to incorporate additional automation in their air-testing machines. These machines are used in the quality-control process for brake line production.

Results
The supplier chose Numatics for its air-testing machine automation package. These products included the compact, next-generation G3 10-station valve manifolds with Ethernet IP. The customer liked the G3 platform´s modularity and plug-and-play design that allow easy access to connections plus user-friendly commissioning and maintenance. These benefits were particularly important, since the customer planned to add more I/O in the future. The supplier also purchased Numatics Series R heavy-duty rotary actuators.

The G3 manifolds and Series R rotary actuators were installed on 12 air-testing machines and have fully met the customer´s automation requirements. Additional Numatics products will be specified as the automotive supplier upgrades additional production lines.

Benefits

  • Fulfilled customer´s desire for plug-and-play capability
  • Provided easy commissioning and maintenance
  • Allowed easy I/O expansion
