How to keep up with the pace of change in the modern industrial environment.

You are probably aware that we are in the middle of the fourth industrial revolution.

The fourth industrial revolution is characterised by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the line between cyber-physical systems

The first three industrial revolutions transformed and revolutionised our society  and with each stage our world has fundamentally changed around us.Technological evolution speeds up exponentially as each generation of technology improves on the last.As change becomes more rapid it is becoming increasingly important to be aware of this when installing infrastructure such as factories.

There are some key areas where GAP Engineering can help improve your ability to keep pace.

CAD design

CAD models play a crucial role in the planning and implementation of modern factory installations.It is becoming more common for the interior of entire buildings to be scanned with a 3D scanner in order for a complete CAD model of the entire workplace to be created. every detail such as flow of work ,positioning of safety fencing ,height restrictions and positioning of equipment can be thoroughly analysed before any other steps are taken.

All of out accessories are available for download in several CAD formats and we provide a CAD design service.

Rapid prototyping

The more things change the more they stay the same and as long as there is a requirement to convert ideas into physical functioning machines there will always be a requirement to build prototypes.As the rate of change increases you would expect the pace of prototyping to increase correspondingly.

This is where products such as T Slot extruded aluminium profiles play a vital role in allowing for the construction of workable prototypes that can easily be modified .Furthermore the components can be recycled for other prototypes without any cutting or welding of metal.We carry over 60 varieties of T Slot profile in stock as well as a large range of accessories.

 

Adaptable cost effective machine frames.

Because it can be modified without the use of metal cutting, grinding,welding or painting The Alusic T Slot aluminium extrusion system can save a lot of money when there is a requirement for modifications and improvements to machine frames.Because it is usually more cost effective to use this system for the initial construction it really is the best solution available. It is very easy to add additional components or frame work members with minimal impact.

Using T Slot Aluminium Profiles and accessories enables the smooth integration of many different components such as conveyors , workstations ,lighting,compressed air,electrical components and much more.When it is time to make some improvements it is easy to make modifications and add components.

 

Safety.

The components that make up the framework we supply  match the safety fencing components so they can integrate perfectly and any modifications required can be carried out with minimal impact to the rest of the factory.
