Over 30 Years Automating

The Builders of motorcycles, watercraft and more

With luxury leisure vehicle sales on the rise, more manufacturers are turning to new automation solutions to keep up with demand. Robotic automation increases productivity, quality and safety in vehicle component manufacturing such as chassis, frames and engine parts. Transitioning a manual manufacturing line to robot automation helps reduce labor costs and improves factory throughput.

Midwest Engineered Systems has extensive experience developing and integrating factory automation systems that construct parts for motorcycles, motorboats and more. 

Automation Applications

  • Manual Assembly Line Modernization
  • AS/RS Buffer Systems
  • Assembly Operations
  • Conveyor Systems
  • Case Packing and Palletizing
  • Welding Processes

Recreational Vehicle expertise

Flywheel assembly Operation

Midwest Engineered Systems designed a fully automated multi-station press that has a part rate of one assembled part every 50 seconds. The following methods, components and technologies were implemented and integrated to provide a comprehensive solution.

Motor Assembly Line Automation

Midwest Engineered Systems integrated a modernized manual manufacturing process with a suspended conveyance system for the assembly of outboard motors. MWES provided this firm with an updated assembly line that retained the manual workforce but provided a safe and ergonomic process.

Assembly Automation with AGVs

Midwest Engineered Systems integrated an automation system using autonomously guided vehicles (AGVs) to eliminate the need to design and build complex conveyor systems. The AGVs would navigate a lengthy preexisting motor assembly process and would have to lift, carry and orientate outboard motors or long block engines throughout the build cycle.
