Main Article Content
Through the centuries man has found easier and better ways to produce the goods he needs and desires. Thus through new technologies through different forms of automation, manual processes of high physical risk and high financial cost are minimized. The aim of this paper is to show that industrial automation can be applied aiming at a low cost in its implementation, presenting a fast financial return time, besides improving the product quality, reducing the production defect rates and consequently the production increase. Article was based on the automation of a modem assembly cell, where it was necessary to use four (4) operators to assemble it, the modem had a defect index of 0.12% related to annual production. The result achieved showed that after the implementation of an automatic tightening machine, only one (1) operator is required to assist in assembly and one (1) defect rate per year dropped to 0.02% per year. Industrial automation has been showing companies the power to become more competitive in the world market. Thus, it becomes essential in the process of using technologies as a tool to support business management.
