Consumer Product Manufacturing

Scale with Confidence.

Consumer demands change constantly, and you need to manufacture something not only to meet the demands of today but also to prepare for tomorrow. As product life cycles change, your automation system needs to be flexible enough to adapt to market uncertainty and confidently scale your business with as little risk as possible.

Are You Ready to Decide?

Before you decide on the foundation for your factory automation, ask yourself:

  • Does this system allow for innovation or are we simply duplicating old processes?
  • How long will it be before the product changes and the process needs to change with it?
  • Is our market well defined or will we need to increase our production capacity and expectations to align with business growth?

SuperTrak CONVEYANCE™ is modular by design – allowing you to expand and adapt as your needs change.

Maximize Floorspace

While customer demands may be increasing, floorspace can come at a premium cost, making expansion of your current process unsustainable. With SuperTrak CONVEYANCE™, integrated functionality allows manufacturers to achieve high-performance in the minimum amount of space by reducing tooling and station redundancies.

Scale During Market Uncertainty

We understand that not everyone can start big.

The SuperTrak CONVEYANCE™ platform is modular in nature and allows you to expand the systems as your operations scale.

Product lifecycles are also contracting, meaning changes are happening more often. With the SuperTrak CONVEYANCE™ platform, manufacturers can reconfigure and re-deploy the platform as needed with a minimal amount of programming. This accommodates changes and maintains production without a sizable capital expenditure each time.

Improve Product Quality

With consumer products, many pieces often go to waste due to slight imperfections. This can be costly for manufacturers.

The platform’s included TrakMaster™ software also provides diagnostic insights to highlight station metrics such as cycle time and shuttle transfers to help optimize your process and improve Operational Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
