Production machinery is a category of tools & machines that applies specifically to machinery that is part of a production pipeline. Although this technology is typically found in large-scale factory production lines, production machinery can in fact be utilised in many environments, with various sizes of machine to be used for any number of purposes. Productpilot.com can be used to locate fit-for-purpose machine providers. Indeed, some production "lines" are composed of a single machine. Where possible, and especially in larger production lines, production machinery will be designed for a specific task with as little complexity as possible. Where it is possible to purchase a machine that can fill, seal, and label a container, a large production line will have a separate machine for each task in order to reduce the risk of breakdowns. The simpler a machine, the more reliable it is.
Machinery intended for production operates on the simple principle that the product being manufactured is complete. That is to say, there are to be no more changes to be made to the design of the product. Products go through a prototyping phase in which different machinery will often be used. During this process the product will be manufactured using much slower methods, for example manually turning a work piece instead of using a CNC lathe. This has the disadvantage of being a slower, less accurate process, but it has the advantage of a significantly decreased time spent setting the machinery up. This is ideal for prototyping, where a product may need to be altered and remade several times. Once the product is ready for production, more appropriate machinery is set up and a production line is created.
Production machinery, like all tools & machinery, is often dated by new and improved machinery that can accomplish a task more accurately, or faster, or more efficiently, and so on.
