At Master Automation & Robotics, we specialise in designing and manufacturing of assembly line production systems and testing lines with a very strong customer base in automotive, white goods, farm & construction equipment, general & heavy engineering, and a fast growing customer base in other industries such as food & pharma, railways & metros and defence.
Our expertise covers automation solution for different types of assembly lines. An automated assembly line uses a wide array of standardised assembly line production solutions, including robotic assembly, and ensures assembly line balancing. Our decades of experience in assembly automation allows us to find innovative solutions to address long standing bottlenecks and production challenges.
The design of our typical assembly line automation system is customised to the production strategy and number of product variants. Irrespective of the complexity the assembly line is designed to be highly efficient, and very cost effective.
Assembly Line Production
At Master Automation & Robotics, we have a strong experience in handling diverse set of components and assemblies ranging from 5 kg to 32 tons. Superior engineering technology and customer satisfaction have been at the heart of our all solutions and products. We deliver solutions of the highest international standards at economical prices.
We use assembly conveyor systems such as roller conveyors, chain conveyors, slat conveyors, overhead conveyors, and belt conveyors. The assembly line production is optimised through the use of intelligent assembly automation systems such as gantry robot, electrified monorail system (EMS), and automated guided vehicles (AGVs).
Assembly Line Balancing
The most important business challenge for manufacturing companies is how to increase the flexibility and speed of production while keeping costs down. One of the key technologies is assembly line balancing. Balancing an assembly line is a procedure in which tasks are distributed evenly to each assembly station in the line so that each workstation has the same amount of the work.
The significant thing is to balance the workload of the operator at every station, reducing the operator idle time over the tact time, which means the decrease of unused idle station capability. A well-balanced workstation gives various advantages in reducing waste, such worker idleness, and need of changing operator, faulty product and stocks. It also allows the company to reduce the price of their product by through the decrease in production cost of the unit.
Robotic assembly involves the use of robots for in the assembly line production. The use of robotic assembly automation is growing, especially in automotive assembly plants. The assembly robots are ideal for tasks requiring high speed and accuracy such as applying sealing, machine loading and palletising. They play an important role in minimising the cycle time and line balancing. They are also extremely versatile and can handle small and big parts with intricate geometries.

Assembly Line Automation
Our automated assembly line guarantees not only the productivity, but also the product quality. It is designed and built to meet the high volume, precision and quality requirement.
- Full integration with line tooling and testing equipment
- Customised, modular and flexible solutions based on the application
- Advanced automation technology using mechatronics
- Ergonomic & operator friendly design
- Safety interlocks and compliance to safety standards
- Production planning and control through central PC / SCADA / IoT
Testing an assembled unit at the end of the assembly line is a critical step in the production process. Defective assemblies and those not matching the required specifications must be separated from the functional units shipped to the customer. End of-line testing assesses not only the quality of the product, but also the stability and yield of the production process. Reliable detection of non-functional units is the primary objective of the test, but reducing the rejection rate and maximising the output is the ultimate goal.
