“A mesmerizing symphony of motion. The greatest advancement in automation in 40 years!”
parts per minute
Symphoni achieves high throughput and flexibility while maintaining gentle part handling and respecting critical process times. Ken Nicholson, Staff Specialist at ATS, explains.
Instead of highly customized, “one-offs,” Symphoni systems are standard assets configured with product-specific touch tooling. They are rapidly deployed, easily reconfigured, and manage variants with quick, economical changeover. Productivity is maximized, risk minimized.
Symphoni™ yields more for less – more output per CAPEX dollar, more output per square meter of floor space. Its modular design, multi-axis configurability, and synchronized motion control optimize ROI, whether the demand is 20 parts per minute or 1000. Plus, Symphoni systems have small footprints. Their compact structure and lean, high-speed efficiency maximize factory space productivity – a critical advantage for cleanroom production.
Symphoni™ capital asset exist to make money! Unfortunately, conventional machines don’t run when orders drop for the product they assemble. In contrast, Symphoni’s multi-product versatility allows quick changeover to Product B (or C or D) in the absence of demand for Product A. Thus, Symphoni machines maintain high utilization and maximum TEEP (Total Effective Equipment Performance). They keep running and keep making money.
Symphoni™ gets new products to market faster! Initial demand can be met with minimal investment with a Sonata™ Development Cell. When demand grows, a full-scale Symphoni production system can be quickly realized, thanks to the platform’s pre-engineered design and modular construction. And once a Symphoni system is installed, its versatility accommodates new products by virtue of rapidly deployed change tooling or reconfigured the modules.
Symphoni™ simplifies validation, saving cost and time for regulated industries. For all manufacturers, Symphoni systems are easy to use and maintain, keeping training and upkeep costs low. Customized touch tooling is minimal, further reducing maintenance. The platform’s digital workstations limit the number of moving parts, and its integrated SuperTrak CONVEYANCE™ moves pallets electromagnetically, minimizing wear and avoiding pallet-to-pallet contact.
Symphoni™ Technology’s compact design minimizes cleanroom space. Its standardization simplifies validation. Perfect for Life Sciences applications.
High-output and versatility are critical for Consumer Goods. Multi-purpose Symphoni™ machines conserve capital and space while maintaining high TEEP.
Symphoni™ Technology fits a wide range of products in diverse industries: Automotive components, electrical connectors, industrial goods – any device with discrete components.
Symphoni™ Technology is ideal for contract manufacturers, with versatile machines that can quickly adapt to changing demand. It gives them a competitive edge by shortening time to market for their customers.
