WHAT IS MODULARITY?
Modularity is a concept that allows for the design
of a system that can be easily modified to suit changes in a process.
The whole pallet based system does not need to be changed when a
small part of it must be changed. That part is simply taken out
and replaced without necessity to directly modify any part of the
main system. This concept allows for the optimization of systems
in terms of efficiency, error analysis, service and especially cost.
MODULARITY IN ASSEMBLY LINE SYSTEMS?
The concept of modularity is perfectly suited
to the design of automation technology in many industries where
time, reliability, and cost is a sensitive part of the operation.
When an alteration has to be made to an assembly line to accommodate
some change in the product, or to introduce a new product altogether,
modularity is the answer. Modular systems are incredibly adaptable.
Any individual station or machine on the pallet based modular line
can be removed and replaced in a few minutes to accommodate changes
