INNOVATION THROUGH AUTOMATION

Robotic Automation Systems

Bringing process together with

Robotics and Robotic Automation Systems

Robots are the future of manufacturing

From small, stand-alone systems to large integrated processes, Midwest Engineered Systems custom designs each robotic integrated system for your specialized operational needs. MWES has designed and installed hundreds of robotic-based systems, from startup companies to Fortune 500 corporations. Integrated robotic automation systems offer many benefits for productivity, quality and safety.

Robotic automation systems can perform tasks faster, more accurately, and more consistently than human workers. This can result in higher output, lower defect rates, and a substantial return on investment (ROI). Robots can also handle hazardous or repetitive tasks that may pose risks or challenges for human workers. This can improve worker safety and satisfaction, as well as reduce labor costs and turnover. Robotic automation systems can adapt to changing demands and conditions in the manufacturing industry. This can enhance flexibility and innovation, as well as respond to customer needs and preferences.

Our design and build solutions include customized robots, specialized End-of-Arm-Tools (EOAT), cable solutions, vision systems, safety enclosures, process monitoring, control systems, and other equipment, to help you and your organization to improve your manufacturing process.

Types of Industrial Robots

When it comes to industrial robots, there are seven primary types. Each of these has its own robot joint configuration and application. Learn More…

Articulated Robots
Articulation with several degrees of freedom allows the articulated arms a wide range of movements.
Learn More About Articulated Robots
Cartesian Robots
Cartesian robots are robots that can do 3 translations using linear slides.
Learn More About Cartesian Robots
Collaborative Robots (Cobots)
Capable of learning multiple tasks so it can assist with and work side-by-side with humans. Highly versatile and programmable.
Learn More About Collaborative Robots
Cylindrical Robots
Characterized by their rotary joint at the base and at least one prismatic joint connecting its links. They can move vertically and horizontally by sliding.
Learn More About Cylindrical Robots
Delta Robots
Particularly useful for direct control tasks and high maneuvering operations.
Learn More About Delta Robots
Polar/Spherical Robots
Polar robots are robot configurations with a combined linear joint and two rotary joints, with an arm connected to a robotic base and a twisting joint.
Learn More About Polar Spherical Robots
SCARA Robots
Scara robots are robots that can do 3 translations plus a rotation around a vertical axis.
