Over 30 Years Developing

Automotive Manufacturing Automation Systems & Processes

Robotic automation has for decades been synonymous with the automotive industry, as it enables faster, safer and more efficient automobile assembly operations. With the increased complexity of today’s automobiles and the desire to avoid costly defect recalls, let alone the high costs of unionized workers, more automotive suppliers are turning to robotics to produce parts. Robotic systems have advanced enough that virtually every step in the supply chain and assembly process can be automated.

Midwest Engineered Systems has experience developing and integrating factory automation systems for automotive parts suppliers. We have provided automation solutions that have paved the way for improving vehicle quality and consistency while keeping ongoing production costs down.

Automotive Automation expertise

Flame Treatment Operation

A parts provider for a leading automaker contracted Midwest Engineered Systems to reintegrate an existing robot work cell, that performed riveting operations, into a robotic flame-treating system for a sports car base frame and glove box.

Component Assembly, Testing & Inspection

MWES designed, developed and integrated an automated assembly system for an injection molding and prototyping company. The final system was a completely automated system that moved un-assembled plastic parts through three assembly operations.

Component Welding

A chief supplier to one of the largest automakers contracted MWES to integrate an automated spot welding cell as part of a larger assembly line. This cell produced parts at a rate of one every 10 seconds.
