Sorting, Feeding, and Joining
Assembly machinery and systems can be broken down into a few core tasks. These can be described as sorting, feeding and joining raw materials to make the end product in an automated or semi-automated fashion. At MESH we have the experience in all three areas using modern methodologies and ingenious ideas to generate the whole solution.
The choice of assembly and joining methods used depend primarily on the industry involved, as well as the factory setup preferred by the manufacturer.
Adhesive Lamination Lines
Adhesive lamination lines are used in many industries from flooring to doors and other similar building products. MESH has utilized our picking and palletizing technologies with our advanced knowledge of glue system integration to develop a complete lamination and glue line. No other North American company known to MESH has this technology in a complete line to offer.
Converting technologies and equipment needed to process sheets and various webs including paper, film, foil, and non-woven fabrics are improving all the time. MESH Automation has a team of expert engineers with a thorough understanding of web-based processes and converting systems. The challenge is to design, build and provide web-converting equipment that will deliver measurable advantages for customers’ production lines.
Automated Laser Measurement
Lasers are being implemented in modern manufacturing processes to measure a part for quality inspection reasons or for machine feedback. MESH Automation has implemented lasers in many different environments on many different parts. We have found that the skills needed to properly integrate a laser for measurement purposes are multidisciplinary and are still rooted in the machine/tooling design arena. Our DNA is in both machine/tooling design as well as software and controls and this is the perfect skill set for proper integration of laser measurement tools. MESH will also use our contact measuring experience to offer the right advice as to the methodology.
Automated Leak and Mass Flow Testing
Mass flow leak testing provides an efficient, reliable way to check the integrity of a product for its intended purpose. It is also a relatively simple non-destructive testing method.
Mass flow leak testing uses a device to measure the flow of air and in this way, detect and calculate leak rates. It is suitable for both large and small volumes of different types, from exhaust systems, seals, gaskets and gas meters to kitchen appliances, and is often used on products that have air or gas flowing through them. Components that operate using liquids may also be tested this way.
Marking and Tracking
Date codes, barcodes, text, and serialization are part of every product and the need is growing as customers demand tracking and manufacturers demand data. Technology is changing at a rapid pace in noncontact and contact methods making it harder to decide which methods offer the best value for your product. Let MESH help you decide with professional advise, examples to show and the ability to turnkey integrate it professionally into your production facility.
Once it is marked it probably needs to be tracked and MESH has the in-house machine and software skills to do both.
Automated Riveting Systems
The use of rivet nuts (rivnuts) and rivets are a time tested and proven joining method. With the increased use of high-strength low-alloy steel and aluminum being used in frames to decrease the weight of components, rivnuts and rivets have been becoming the preferred method of attaching components and panels.
Automating this process using robots or hard automation is a value-added proposition that MESH can help with. MESH’s solutions have been used by a variety of fortune 500 customers. Automation is the future for most manufacturing businesses and the only way to survive in today’s markets. It allows for higher and more consistent production, higher quality parts and allows companies to avoid the pitfalls with employee turnover.
