OUR PROCESS

With an ever-changing world, advanced automation processes are imperative to keeping jobs in Australia. Our cost-effective and intelligent design ensures processes are completely to meet cycle time whilst ensuring machine safety and ease-of-use for operators. Our in-house design, manufacturing, assembly and large testing facility ensures that all our automation solutions are thoroughly proven before being integrated and commissioned into the field.

At Cenos we strive to design, manufacture, integrate and commission state-of-the-art equipment as well as special purpose machines to meet industry needs. Industries that we have served include

  •  Pharmaceuticals
  • Military and Defense
  • Automotive
  • Biomedical
  •  Food and Beverage
  •  Logistics
  • General Manufacturing Processes

FEASIBILITY CONSULTATION

Have a chat to us to see how Cenos Automation can help automate your processes. An initial meeting will give our customers the chance to bounce ideas off our engineers to determine the best course for automation in their business.

    •  Let us know your idea for automating your processes
    •  We can have a tour of your facility to help generate automation idea

concept & quotation

After the initial meeting, a specification is typically supplied by our customers detailing their requirements. At this stage, our engineers will think up a concept and provide a quotation for your consideration.

  •  In-depth quotation with 2D/3D concept
  •  Non-Disclosure Agreement
  •  Projected cost and timing

DETAILED DESIGN

This stage is where all the engineering disciplines work together to visualize and flesh out concepts, using 3D CAD and simulation software. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility also allows us to produce rapid prototypes to prove concepts and ensure that the final design is successful.

  •  3D CAD modelling
  •  Fully detailed drafts
  •  Rapid prototype
  •  Proof-of-concept exercise

MANUFACTURING & ASSEMBLY 

Once the design is completed, our team of expert and experienced machinist and fitters ensure that designs are realized to specified tolerances and quality finishes. Furthermore, having in-house manufacturing facilities mean that we control every part of the manufacturing process, which in turn, mean that all our products are made to the utmost quality that Cenos Automation is known for.

  •  Electrical schematics
  •  Detailed drafts
  •  Rapid prototypes
  •  3D CAD modeling
  •  Proof-of-concept exercises

ELECTRICAL DESIGN & PROGRAMMING

Working in tandem, our electrical engineers design build electrical cabinets to suit the cell design requirements to required safety levels (CAT3 / CAT4). Our programmers also start mapping and laying out foundation program parameters so that when the machine is finally built, they can start the programming process straight away.

  • Safety system classification implementation
  • Electrical cabinet build
  • PLC and HMI programming
  • Robot programming

FACTORY ACCEPTANCE TEST (FAT)

The project is only really completed once the design has been tested to the customer’s requirements. Prior to shipping to the customer’s site, in most cases we can setup the entire production cell/machine in our ~500m2 factory floor to ensure that any issues that may have been overlooked can be spotted and rectified.

  •  Machine setup
  •  Machine run-in prior to shipping
  •  Ensure proper sequencing
  •  Automation process debugging

ON-SITE INSTALLATION & COMMISSIONING

The same crew who installed and tested the production cell/machine will facilitate the on-site installation and commissioning. This step will include final touch-ups and tune-ups and a Site Acceptance Test (SAT).
  •  Machine setup
  •  Machine run-in on-site
  •  Machine production cycle run-in

DOCUMENTATION AND ON-GOING SUPPORT

Our machines typically include an Operator’s Manual, which will outline recommended operating procedures and troubleshooting guides. In conjunction with an Operator’s Manual, we also provide comprehensive training to operators to ensure that they know how to operate the machine, and also how to overcome potential issues.

  •  Operator’s Manual
  •  Troubleshooting
  •  System support
  •  System upgrade

FUTURE UPGRADES & Maintenance

Though we put extreme care & effort into designing each and everyone of our machines so that they remain in service for as long as possible, all machines and equipment have a life. When it comes to re-investing or adding additional functionality to machines we always look a ways to improve them by implementing the latest technology.

  •  Machine Refurbishment
  • Functionality Upgrades
  • Staged-Design
  • HMI/User Interface Upgrades
  • IOT & Industry 4.0
