Benefits of Attending

As industries are moving through more competitiveness and mass customization, there is a need to reduce your manufacturing cost and bring more flexibility into your production capabilities. SLCA uses technologies and principles which are easy to maintain and upgrade and require less maintenance cost.

Simple and Low-Cost Automation will offer the following benefits:

  • Improve Productivity.
  • Increase Flexibility in production.
  • Enhance Quality
  • Increase Safety at workplace
  • Reduce manual and repeated effort
  • Reduce Lead times.
  • Reduce Scrap and Repair
  • Less maintenance cost in comparison to sophisticated automation
  • Faster return on investments
  • Less capital investment
  • Only semi-skilled manpower is able to run the SLCA.
  • Reusable and Adaptable to changes in market and product.
