TF Automation working with manufacturers to provide bespoke process automation solutions
TF Automation design, engineer and manufacture process automation solutions as well as supplying pneumatic and industrial components. Supporting a wide range of manufacturing industries from automotive, aerospace and pharmaceutical, to food and beverage, printing and packaging, TF Automation provide special purpose machinery, designed to clients’ bespoke needs.
We work closely with food and drink manufacturers supporting them with the supply of food standard pneumatics and industrial components as well as the design and engineering of bespoke machinery focusing on process automation, improved output and continuous improvement. We understand the intricacies of supplying to this sector and work with leading manufacturers to ensure correct component specification for our clients for their requirements. Our clients are varied including regional dairies producing a wide range of dairy products through to multinational bakery producers and snack manufacturers.
Our projects range from full manufacturing units to specialist components all engineered to integrate fully with existing production lines. Our engineering and design expertise is extensive and we are able to offer the latest technology across a wide range of disciplines including pneumatics, robotics, automated assembly, in-mould labelling, pick and place and leak testing, with process automation as our core focus.
We have delivered numerous automation solutions for clients, from bench-top checking/gauging fixtures to multiple 6 Axis robotic pick & place systems. We have also developed particular expertise working with plastic components including assembly, machining and finishing, and in-mould labelling.
All projects are carried out in-house, including concept design created in Solidworks 3D CAD, CNC machining, manufacturing (mechanical and electrical), testing and commissioning and programming. Where we do bring in expertise and components, we work only with the most renowned and innovative brands, ensuring that all materials and components meet strict quality standards.
We work with some of the largest manufacturers in their respective fields, all requiring product handling and automation solutions to support some of the world’s leading brands particularly in the aerospace and automotive industries. Consistency, improved production efficiency and precision are our clients’ key drivers, with the majority of our projects concentrating on improving product handling and automating manual-handling processes. Another area of focus is on traceability and we work with clients to incorporate and improve traceability into their manufacturing processes to meet quality standardisation and continuous improvement requirements.
With over 40 years’ experience, our strength is in our ability to assess and understand the needs of each project and client. We take the time to consider all possible solutions for clients, ensuring their expectations are met and the optimum solution provided.
Process automation and continuous improvement of manufacturing processes are central to all our projects at TF Automation and we strive to offer the most innovative and technologically advanced solutions for all our clients.
