New Capital Equipment Purchase Gives ADI Competitive Edge

Posted on March 29th, 2011 at 9:59 AM

Erie, Pa. – Automation Devices, Inc (ADI), a vibratory feeder and part system components manufacturer, recently invested in a new state-of-the-art CNC machining center for their Fairview, Pa. manufacturing facility. As a result, machining that may have been outsourced can be done in-house, saving both time and money for the company and its customers.

A quick lead time seems to be a primary concern for most manufacturers in today’s fast paced economy. At ADI engineers see more and more of a domino effect in the way we do business - customers need their finished product so that they are able to meet the needs of their customer. ADI has surpassed the challenges associated with custom vibratory feeder orders and short delivery dates.

With the instability of the economy in recent years, ADI had an unprecedented problem of vendors with longer lead times. Due to rising expenses and shrinking demands companies were keeping inventories down to manage their own costs. “Raw materials and outsourced services that once took several days, were now quoted at several weeks,” explains ADI President Kevin Smith. “We had to do something fast to ensure our customers were getting the same quality product in the timeframe they have come to expect.” Trends in the industry didn’t indicate a solution to their problem, so ADI felt this was a necessary expenditure to maintain its high level of superior service.

ADI prides itself on the quality and availability of their products built by an experienced team of engineers. Standard vibratory feeding components and equipment are in stock and available for next day shipping. An extensive inventory enables large, custom orders to be started immediately ensuring a prompt delivery. As the economy continues to revolutionize, ADI has proven adaptable to the changes and will be a forerunner in the vibratory feeding industry into the future.
