Manufacturing Engineering

Mfg. Engineering/Automation

Our manufacturing engineering team is an extension of our customers – we help add value to our customers product through implementing state-of-the-art technologies to reduce variability. Further, implementing automation ensures the product is made with the highest quality possible. Our engineering team designs and builds the majority of our automated systems in-house. By doing that, we have complete control over the design, build, and validation process. We can then support the equipment while it runs throughout the life cycle of the product.

Capabilities Include:

  • Sonic and vibration welding
  • Design of EOAT’s for part extraction
  • High-speed labeling and assembly systems
  • 4 and 6-axis robot programming
  • Usage of vision for robot tracking and part inspection
  • PLC/HMI/SCADA programming
