We understand the highly regulated nature of the defence sector, and the need for highly collaborative relationships between client and supplier. We work closely with our defence sector clients to provide reliable, accurate, maintainable, and safe machines that they can depend upon to deliver for their business.
Defence businesses are facing the same challenges as other sectors. Labour shortages, rising costs and high demand has resulted in the need to consider automation and robotics as a solution.
ALPHR designs, manufactures, and supports automated solutions for a range of products in the defence sector, understanding the demanding requirement for quality and process control.
Supporting the introduction of automation and robotics within extremely controlled manufacturing processes and allowing for the redeployment of skilled labour resources has been essential.
Precision controlled assembly, vision inspection, data collection, traceability and accurate testing are critical processes supported by ALPHR that have helped with the adoption of automation.
What benefits can automation offer in the Defence sector?
Accuracy & Quality: Our solutions can significantly reduce the risk of human error in tasks where precision and accuracy are required, dramatically improving quality. Automation can perform tasks with the highest levels of precision, minimising errors, reducing rework or defects, resulting in zero defects entering the supply chain.
Consistency: We provide solutions that can help eliminate variability that can be introduced by human operators, ensuring tasks are performed consistently and reliably, extremely important for processes that require precise measurements and repeatability.
Regulatory Compliance is essential to the defence sector to ensures both legal and ethical obligations are met, but also helping to build trust and credibility and promote innovation.
Improved Safety: The fundamental consideration for ALPHR is the safety of our clients’ employees and their working environment. It’s in the DNA of all our machine designs. All systems we supply adhere to and comply with all relevant safety standards and directives.
Distribution of Labour: The implementation of automation and robotics can ease the reliance on manual labour, allowing skilled operators to be utilised elsewhere in the production process, and removed from mundane or repetitive tasks.
Data Collection and Analysis: ALPHR offer the collection of data in real-time, providing our clients with valuable insights into the performance of their manufacturing system that can be used to improve processes and decision-making.
Automation Solutions for the Defence Industry
Through statistical analysis, our clients can pinpoint issues in downstream processes.
