Erie, Pa. – Automation Devices, Inc (ADI), a vibratory feeder and part system components manufacturer, has seen a recent increase in activity from customers associated with the automotive industry. With an economic downtrend, automotive manufacturing appears to be on the upswing, creating a growing need for automated parts feeding systems.

“We have seen an increase in requests for quotes for vibratory feeding systems for the automotive industry,” explains ADI President Kevin Smith. “Automotive clips and fasteners, keys and rotor assemblies, are currently in high demand.”

“Several of our customers serve automotive companies,” explains Smith. “Our job is to provide a vibratory feeding system that can orient the given part in the mandatory direction for their production line. “Quick turn-around times and achieving the necessary feed rate is optimal to our success.”

According to Automotive News, “North American vehicle production in August saw an increase of 10 percent from the year-earlier month to 1,228,736 units. It was the 22nd consecutive month with a year-over-year increase. The previous longest streak was 20 months in 1993-95.”

“That is huge for an economy that has overall seen limited growth in the last year,” comments Smith. “Our goal is to embrace this economic boost and use it to our advantage. ADI will continue to provide our customers with the level of quality products they’ve come to expect.”
