TQC Ltd. have performed a number of integrated production line automated projects resulting in reduced labour and increased quality of product.

The method by which TQC has succeeded in this area is by utilising existing technology modules and integrating proprietary equipment into the automated production system.

Although a modular design approach has been used throughout, the configuration of the equipment has been of a bespoke nature.

Many of the systems supplied have an integrated control system incorporating both PLC and PC control. As a result of the combination of controllers, sophisticated statistical process control has been included for real time monitoring of the production process and final function testing. In addition to 100% product validation and test full MIS facilities for production recording have been included in many systems supplied.
