Project Spotlight: Hydraulic Motor Assembly Line
MWES designed a single manual production line for a firm that could manufacture over a dozen different variations of a hydraulic motor. The line utilizes a large number of sub-assembly stations, where workers perform the required tasks based on the specific variant of the motor being assembled.
Project Spotlight: Trigger and Bottle Assembly Line
Midwest Engineered System built a fully automated assembly line that required no manual labor to perform the assembly operation. Robots using a vision system would pick and sort the multiple types of triggers as they travel on a single conveyor. On a separate conveyor, filled bottles would arrive at the bottle assembly station.
Project Spotlight: Automated Picture Frame Assembly
Automating high volume production operations is relatively straight forward: design a specialized machine that only produces one part. The rest of the time is spent to make it robust enough to do it at speed and for a long time before service.
What’s on Our Floor: OnRobot Grippers
In the automation world, many times it’s the gripper that packs the most innovation on a system. The grippers are where the automation system actually interacts with the products moving through the cell.
MWES prides itself on being independent, even when it comes down to robot selection – the core of an automation system. This allows us to offer the best solutions for our customers without being constrained. As an example, this week sees a Universal Robot getting positioned for a new automation
