As market trends lean toward being smaller, thinner and smarter, a dynamic behind-the-scenes automation and machine-build team has never been more important to adapt to and meet those evolving trends.
While reaching true collaboration is often cited as a major challenge facing the manufacturing and machine-build industry, the team at Northfield Automation Systems works to overcome that challenge by remaining nimble and responsive, striving to ensure our solutions offer greater performance capabilities in the most efficient ways possible.
Our team has participated in a variety of industries that share like challenges related to tolerances and very sensitive materials at various stages of processing. It is this learned experience that we apply to our automated manufacturing equipment designs. We talk through this with our customers to understand what they are seeing as manufacturing issues and fallout in yield at the process sequence being automated as well as the process upstream and downstream. This understanding allows Northfield Automation Systems to include critical capabilities to assure control is maintained to the next process. Our team strives to provide an optimized solution for the automated manufacturing process.
Our project management includes a process that generates a better understanding of our customers’ overall goals and what challenges are being encountered in the manufacturing of the product. Northfield Automation Systems identifies the goals to the project and maintains updates to assure that our customers are kept up to date throughout the process. Our team keeps current on cutting-edge technology and integrates that technology into our designs for optimal results.
Collaboration is Key
Our entire team, from project managers and engineers to welders and designers, works together in overlapping technologies to offer many perspectives in the internal design reviews of our projects. Every member of our manufacturing team has a voice in the internal design review prior to presenting to our customers, assuring the best overall solution.
This working environment stimulates ideas from all perspectives involved in our projects, and we operate as a team with one goal in mind—the success and satisfaction of our customers. Northfield Automation System has a welcoming atmosphere and all of our employees are part of a team that strives to exceed our customers’ expectations. This is proven in the fact that over 80% of our customers’ project specifications are updated during initial discussions and design reviews.
At a time when productivity and efficiency are of utmost importance, it is crucial to create innovative process solutions. Through collaboration, the Northfield Automation Systems team is able to offer our customers a fresh, unbiased outside perspective that takes into account current and future trends.
