Flexible Assembly Systems
Flexible automation involves customizing applications for manufacturing single products and specific tasks without the threat of future limitations. So instead of overhauling assembly lines every product life cycle, flexible automation allows manufacturers to re-task systems so they can be used for other jobs down the line.
Robots are frequently used for flexible automation solutions, and when utilized correctly will evolve with the manufacturing process, reducing production costs, improving quality, and even minimizing (if not eliminating) health and safety issues that commonly arise in processing systems.
MESH customers who value flexible automation generally need an automation option that can easily be re-tasked for future orders. They realize that fixed automation may be less expensive in the short term, but know that by investing in flexible automation they will save money long-term, on future production lines. Flexible automation is particularly useful for our automotive, medical device and consumer products industry customers.
Flexible Automation is an Important Core Competency for MESH
MESH Automation has developed core competencies in the design, build, and commissioning of manufacturing systems used in assembly and product testing cells. Our experience in lean cells and in fully comprehensive and automated turnkey systems is extensive. In fact, only a few companies in the US can match our capabilities and experience in flexible automated systems.
We use a wide range of assembly and joining methods, and our machine retooling skills are excellent. Our automation hardware is extensive and includes robots, pneumatics, smart actuators, servo systems and other types that enable us to achieve the desired automation and cost goals of every customer.
Our professional electrical controls design and our mechanical engineering expertise and software development skills provide our customers with robust equipment and systems that meet their vital demand for a meaningful return on investment (ROI).
Whether you need individual lean cells or a multifaceted fully automated machine that provides a material handling solution, we can design and build a system with the best value for your needs.
Semi-Automatic – Lean Manufacturing
MESH Automation has a series of pre-engineered lean cell-based solutions for customers. These are all standard modules that allow us to offer competitive solutions in a timely manner to meet varied needs.
The MINI MAC pre-engineered solutions we offer all follow MESH Automation’s standard project management model. Systems are flexible and allow for individual selection of process-specific equipment. In addition, each unit is fully tested before shipment.
Installation is quick and startup is possible within one day or even less.
Each MINI MAC solution features proven designs based on our production of hundreds of lean cells over our many years in business.
At MESH, we understand the importance of reducing waste in your manufacturing processes, keeping the production flow running smoothly, and getting the most value from the investment our customers make.
Our experience integrating lean manufacturing principles into our automation designs will help you increase production efficiencies, minimize material waste, and control overall manufacturing costs.
While every business has its own needs, MESH Automation recognizes basic engineering solutions that often work across the board for different industries. For this reason our highly experienced team of engineers has developed a number of pre-engineered solutions that meet incredibly varied needs, from manual operations to automated robotics. So, instead of starting totally from scratch, many of our customers are able to get going with high-tech equipment that has already been tested and is ready to go.
