Heavy Equipment Manufacturing

Over 30 years Optimizing the

automation & production of heavy equipment

Companies integrate automated equipment into important areas for welding, material handling, pick and place, and repetitive activities since manufacturing and assembling industrial equipment is a difficult job. To increase quality, traceability, efficiency, and throughput, firms typically use a combination of robotic arms, sensors, conveyance, guided vehicles, artificial intelligence, and machine learning.

You can use robotics for heavy material handling and operator-assist devices for carrying engines, wheels, and parts through warehouses, decreasing the danger of injury to personnel, whether you’re making parts, systems, or heavy equipment.

frame welding

Welding of large frames is a difficult task, not to mention ergonomically challenging for the operator. MWES can support your frame welding processes from beginning to end, with robotic welding quality being consistent and reliable every time.

Structural Steel

Large building structures and earth moving frame/boom based fabrications require specialized material handling and process capability to create quality components in a safe manner.

MWES provides systems for:

  • Material handling
  • Part orientation for operator ergonomics and accessibility
  • Plasma and laser cutting for complex shapes
  • Welding systems for joining heavy frames and structural components

Storage Tanks and Vessels

Typically the highest standard of welding is needed for tank and pressure vessel welding. MWES provides unique large component manipulators, robotic welders, weld bead sensors, and robotic path and diagnostic software to support the manufacturing of these large parts while ensuring the highest quality.

Weld diagnostic inspection and data acquisition help support the assurance that productivity and weld integrity is tracked and recorded for future reference by your engineering staff.
