Collaborating with an Expert Integrator to Accelerate Manufacturing Automation


By Del Williams


shift toward implementing automated systems. However, off-the-shelf equip- ment cannot accommodate every applica- tion. This is particularly true for complex systems with robots and conveyors, as well as a host of equipment for manufac- turing, assembly, packaging, labeling, palletizing, etc. —which all must be coor- dinated flawlessly. For this reason, even some large

automation companies will not take on applications considered too difficult. In such cases, companies looking to increase the speed and efficiency of their manufac- turing lines need an automation partner that can quickly and cost-effectively deliver tailored or even custom solutions. This includes the ability to design, build and integrate high-speed, high-volume automated equipment and systems for some of the largest companies in the world, as well as growing corporations seeking to become world-class. For projects of any size, however, it can


be crucial to partner with an expert supplier to overcome a range of obstacles, such as meeting specifications and regulatory require- ments, system integration, and necessary cus-

space will often pass on opportunities if they are not easily resolved,” says Leon Gurevich, founder and chief technology officer of Rapid Development Services (RDS). RDS is an industrial automation


equipment builder that provides design, engineering, integration, and fabrica- tion of production machinery. The com- pany has implemented over 300 com- plex, robotic, assembly and manufactur- ing projects worldwide, and has been awarded more than 40 patents. So, at the risk of delay or failure on


larger, more complex projects it is par- ticularly important to work with a sup- plier that not only has expertise, but is also nimble and flexible. “When it comes to automating pro-


Automation projects of any size can be handled by employing an expert supplier and integrator, such as Rapid Development Services (RDS).


Custom Automation “While implementing off-the-shelf solu-


tions can be a starting point for some proj- ects, automating and incorporating robotics frequently requires a custom solution that meets very specific process requirements. For this reason, even large suppliers in this


duction, equipment can range from very small to complete lines several hundred feet long that can consist of robots, con- veyors, vision systems, server drives, etc.,” says Gurevich, who has worked


with companies that include Anheuser Busch, Johnson and Johnson, Cargill, Gen - eral Mills, Abbott Labs, Pfizer, Medtronic, and Cooper Industries. “So, automation suppliers and integra-


tors need a ‘tool box’ full of solutions includ- ing the ability to design and build from
