Are you tired of dealing with automation systems providers that over-promise and under-deliver? There’s so much riding on your next decision.

  • Did your last automation machine supplier leave you in the dark about project progress?
  • Have you been blindsided by poor quality and missed deadlines?
  • Frustrated by a lack of qualified labor and escalating labor costs?
  • Afraid that choosing the wrong automation partner could cost you your next promotion and your company’s health?

If you answered yes to any of the above, you are in the right place.

We understand you’re overworked and under pressure.

You need to trim costs and boost profits. Your salespeople have made promises to customers and now you have to deliver. You know that automating your manufacturing processes will help, but choosing an automation systems supplier can feel like jumping off a cliff.

Automation Technologies & Solutions

The rise of manufacturing automation is revolutionizing production lines. This wave of innovative technologies and solutions promises to increase efficiency, improve quality, and empower manufacturers to thrive in a competitive market.

Sonic welding offers a fast, efficient, and reliable method for joining thermoplastics, making it a valuable tool in industrial manufacturing alongside techniques like adhesive bonding and bolting. While each method has its strengths, sonic welding excels in applications requiring fast cycle times, clean welds, and strong bonds for non-critical structural components.

Ultrasonic welding uses high-frequency vibrations to create clean, permanent bonds between compatible thermoplastics. This technology offers speed and precision, making it ideal for high-volume production of non-critical parts where fast cycle times and strong, yet localized, welds are essential.

Laser welding offers a high-precision and clean joining solution for various materials, including metals and some plastics. This automation technology uses a concentrated laser beam to melt and fuse components, creating strong, narrow welds with minimal heat distortion. Due to its precision and control, laser welding are ideal for applications that require intricate welds, join dissimilar materials or have thin parts.

Heat staking is a cost-effective method for joining plastic components in manufacturing. It uses localized heat to melt a designated area on one plastic component, allowing it to be pressed against another part and form a secure bond upon cooling. This method is ideal for high-volume production, particularly for attaching fasteners, clips or creating leak-proof seals in non-critical areas.

Spin welding is a versatile method for joining plastics with precision and strength. Spin welding is fast and clean, using friction heat generated by spinning one part against a stationary one. This creates a strong weld that is ideal for high-volume production of simple, leak-proof parts.

Robotic integrators are the bridge between robots and production lines. They allow these machines to seamlessly integrate with existing systems, boosting efficiency and revolutionizing the production process.

Hot welding uses heat to melt and fuse plastic parts together. It's a popular choice for factories because it's fast and makes sturdy bonds for many plastic products. However, hot welding can sometimes warp the plastic and only works with certain types.
