FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Sept. 26, 2011 — While fluid automation products — valves, pneumatics actuators, and similar components — control the flow of a process liquid or a supply of compressed air, they can also help control the flow of profits, according to a new management brief from ASCO Numatics. Titled “Fluid Automation: The Unsung Contributor to Plant Economic Performance,” the brief is available for download at http://goo.gl/9MMkH.
The speed and reliability of fluid control products can provide competitive economic advantages in industrial operations worldwide. This is due to their ability to extend overall equipment service life, reduce warranty costs, cut maintenance/repair/operations (MRO) inventories, and increase production uptime and productivity.
But the choice of fluid automation technology is critical. For end users, judicious selection of fluid automation components must play a key role in their performance improvement plans. For original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), the right fluid automation choices provide significant cost, time-to-market, and product competitive advantages.
The new management brief examines available solutions and discusses how they have maximized both speed and reliability — and provided surprisingly strong contributions to the economic performance of industrial operations.
The contents of the brief include:
- Changing the Rhythm
- Feeding the Bottom Line
- The Benefits of Reliability
- The Power of Speeds
- Advantages for the OEM
- Advances for the End User
