What Matters?

You design and manufacture industrial automation machines or equipment and understand that one solution does not fit all.

That’s what matters.

In short, you are trying to help your customers and yourselves to:

  • Reduce costs
  • Meet customer specifications
  • Reduce risk
  • Differentiate your systems
  • Maximize revenue
  • Maximize profitability

Many OEMs and machine builders have told us that differentiating themselves in the market is their biggest challenge. While their customers have fewer projects and smaller capital budgets, there is greater competition from a broader base of OEMs. Customers are focused on cost first, but continue to demand more functionality. As a result, many OEMs struggle to balance the cost and design demands of their customers.

Get it Right Early

Developing, testing, and refining your machines can be a waste of time, money, and resources. You realize you can’t be an expert at everything. So how do you avoid the trap of spending hours and hours, trying to meet tough customer specifications, when you don’t really have deep experience in the area of process weighing?

You partner with Hardy and leverage our expertise, experience, and solutions. We can help you take a shortcut to the best solution and reduce both your development cost and time to market. Getting it wrong has always been easy. Getting it right with Hardy is a far better option.

Here are a few examples of how we help you add value:

  1. Your customer’s batching or blending equipment skid has tight material feed specifications. We can help you select the most effective method to measure and control the weight or rate of material feeds on your process skid.
  2. Your customer has a packaging line that you are integrating your filling or dosing machine into, but you have to deal with potential flow rate and product variations on the filler. We can help you design the most effective weighing solution to meet the packaging specification.
  3. Your customer wants to eliminate costly black box, green board product inspection equipment, specifically by switching to dynamic and static check weighers. They want to migrate to off-the-shelf equipment (PLCs, HMIs, and weighing instrumentation). This is equipment that they are familiar with and can be easily modified for their application and maintained. We can help you select, design, and apply a solution that will satisfy their need.

Having a business partner like Hardy on hand to help you answer these questions is the most effective way to satisfy your customer’s quality constraints and at the same time achieve the most profit for their plant. By utilizing the experience and expertise of the engineers at Hardy, you can be sure of arriving at the optimum solution.
