Automation systems come in a variety of sizes. Some are small enough to process sensitive medical operations. They scale up from there to robotic systems that can process parts the size or weight of a car and beyond.
Many don’t realize that robot arms can be equipped with an EOAT that is capable of cleanly grabbing multiple products at once. Our custom designed robot gripper made this palletizing process a breeze.
Economies are opening up and demand for many products and services are surging. It’s predicted that most companies will see massive demand for their products in the near future, if it hasn’t happened already.
There’s plenty of machine tending systems on the market, but how do the parts arrive to these systems? Chances are, there’s a large amount of manual labor being used to unload pallets and bins to feed them.
Keeping production on track with the right components in high variability, low volume assembly and manufacturing can be a headache that tends to affect throughput. When product variations are small in nature but important to functionality, these issues can not only affect production efficiency, it can also make trouble in keeping quality on track.
Whether the human-centric production process revolves around high dexterity operations or large scale, heavy industrial applications, greater efficiency can be found by adopting systems used primarily in automation-first systems. Many times, production volume increases can be had without resulting in replacing workers with automated processes and can even be installed without large disruptions to current production.
With its automated material storage and retrieval processes, the MWES ASRS buffer system can give a facility back valuable manufacturing time and reduce production errors. The MWES ASRS system can store materials in not only in an efficient manner, it allows for production environments to quickly manage materials as needed. The system does this by cataloging materials and their locations by how they integrate into the production process.
Midwest Engineered Systems has partnered with GE Healthcare to help build ventilators faster for those in need. GE tapped the firm to help expand its production capacity after hearing of its successes in automating the manufacturing of precision valves for GE’s turbine engine division. One area where MWES
Midwest Engineered Systems was honored with two of the three Fanuc Robotics System Integrators awards for 2018. One honor, the Sales Leadership Award, is for exemplary level FANUC robot system sales. The second honor, the Outstanding Sales Growth Award, is for increasing robot sales by more than 50% from the previous
