MESH is exhibiting a MAC and MiniMAC at FABTECH in Atlanta, November 6-8!

Come check us out at the HBS Stud Welding Partners booth(C13468) and the Kember America booth (C11352).


The MESH Automation MINI MAC Gantry is a pre-engineered automation platform furnished with a gantry for high speed and high accuracy motion, while minimizing noise and maintenance requirements. The MiniMAC Gantry is designed to be used for a variety of tasks such as dispensing, stud welding, screw/nut driving, inspection, milling, deburring and cutting. With two standard working ranges, 2’x3’ and 4’x4’, the MiniMAC Gantry can be used for automation on many parts for a relatively low initial investment.

The MINI MAC gantry is designed to get customers the highest return on their investment, without taking shortcuts on safety or reliability. MESH has partnered with a variety of well known, high end industry leaders to provide the MINI MAC with top of the line components;

  • Welding Equipment: HBS Stud Welding
  • Servo Motors: Rockwell, Mitsubishi or Emerson
  • Drive: Nexen Roller Pinion System coupled with GAM Gear Boxes
  • Linear Bearings: Normal Accuracy or High Accuracy profile linear bearing (“NA”/“HA” in model) for maximum rigidity and accuracy.
  • Controls: Rockwell, Mitsubishi or Emerson PLC/HMI (allows the end customer to re-program the PLC, no “black box” control items).
  • Cable Management: Cable Carriers (such as from IGUS or KabelShlepp).
