We employ full-time mechanical design, control design, software design and manufacturing engineers to ensure our projects can be controlled from a quality as well as a project management perspective.
TF Automation provides clients with a turnkey solution
All projects are carried out in-house, including concept design created in Solidworks 3D CAD, CNC machining, manufacturing (mechanical and electrical), testing and commissioning and programming. Where we do bring in expertise and components, we work only with the most renowned and innovative brands, ensuring that all materials and components meet strict quality standards.
Our strength is in our ability to assess and understand the needs of each project and client. We take the time to consider all possible solutions for clients, ensuring their expectations are met and the optimum solution provided.
As a small team with many years of experience between us across a vast range of industries, we understand that no project or client is the same and we approach each with an open mind. Our clients projects range from idea inception to clear focus on process automation and everything in between!
Taking the time to understand clients’ particular requirements, our experienced design engineers work with you to ensure the most competitive and innovative solution for your automation project. Using 3D Solidworks software (both mechanical and electrical), we create 3D CAD drawings for every project to visualise machinery and agree the specification prior to manufacture.
Machines are built in-house to the highest quality only using components that are manufactured to the same exacting standards. We will occasionally outsource specialist expertise, if required for a particular application, however we will always oversee this input as part of the overall project. Our manufacturing team works closely with our design engineers to ensure projects run smoothly and to client requirements.
Testing & Commissioning
All our machines are thoroughly tested in-house and signed off with client approval prior to on-site commissioning. Our engineering team also test and commission the machine at the customer’s site to ensure smooth integration into the overall production.
We offer programming as part of our in-house full service, including PLC/HMI, electric drives and vision systems. We only work with programmers who are specialists in their area and offer site visits to support installation and testing, plus operator training, if required.
