A New Automated and High Speed Machinery System for Filling High Viscous Liquids
The application of automation to industries brings revolution for manufacturing techniques and allows more sophisticated, flexible, reliable, and cost-effective manufacturing process control. Automation is to use control system to reduce human labor intervention during manufacturing processes and production. It plays very important role and puts strong impact in industries. Automation is not only significantly increasing the production speed but also more accurately controlling product quality. The automated manufacturing can maintain consistent quality, shorten lead time, simplify material handling, optimize work flow, and meet the product demand for flexibility and convertibility in production. The current economic globalization requires significant labor cost reduction through industry automation, better machine tools, and efficient production process. This paper is to design and develop a new automated and high speed machinery system for filling high viscous liquids. It includes the design of automated and high speed machinery, computer aided modeling and simulation of automated mechanical system, and prototype testing. The major advantages of this new automated and high speed liquid filling system include reliable function, high volume filling rates, good sealing capacity, and cost-effective manufacturing process. This new automated and high speed manufacturing systems has been analyzed by computer aided modeling and simulation, and verified through prototype testing. Both results indicate that this automated and high speed manufacturing systems can keep high product quantity and reliable product quality.
