Abstract

The present work shows how the design and implementation of an automation system was carried out for the line of strap of a women's clothing factory, taking into consideration the time it takes to make the product and the people who work in each production line. The company produces different styles of bra straps; but this work only focused only on 1 style, which was the simple strap. The development consisted of inserting a slide at the end of the elastic and performing the embroidery. This automation is composed of a base, an elastic slider, main base of the slide holder, clamp and rotary module, cutting piece, slide and slide fastener. Once the machine that automates this process was designed and implemented, it was found that it performs twice as much assemblies as those that are done manually, so it saves 50% in assembly time which allows to generate more products.
