About Robotics in Automation

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

Our design and build solutions can include: customized robots, specialized End-of-Arm-Tools (EOAT), cable solutions, vision systems, safety enclosures, process monitoring, control systems, and other technical 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 types has its own robot joint configuration and application.

Articulated Robots
Articulation with several degrees of freedom allows the articulated arms a wide range of movements.

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.

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.
