With experienced programmers from multiple backgrounds, we have a
diverse set of expertise. From Computer Science, to Industrial
Electricians. From Robot Programmers to Mechatronics Students, we
pride ourselves on searching out a wide array of creative people
who love to solve challenging problems. While we have the
experienced staff who can provide the age-old tried and true
solutions, we also strive to take a fresh look at every
application to search for ways to make improvements. We are
aggressively opposed to the prospect of enforcing methods only due
to "That's the way we've always done it!" and ensure that at a
minimum every application has alternative methods analyzed and the
best solution is brought forward. From Object Oriented programming
methodology being incorporated into PLC Ladder logic, to the
creation of standardized units of code to promote reuse instead of
re-inventing the wheel on every new project, we aim to take
Industrial Automation Programming to the next level.
From additions and kit changes to an existing design, to new
systems from scratch, we have the tools in-house to put together
your solution. We can generate a complete system from a machine
layout, sequence of operations and the customer component
specifications with everything necessary to build, program, and
commission your new system.
handle traceability systems, either with existing in-house metrics
or complete standalone database driven systems with line-side
IPC’s. We can integrate barcode scanning and part tracking, Vision
inspection systems, transfer system handshaking, interlocks
between systems and more. We will integrate both our own equipment
as well as tooling from other tool builders in order to give you a
single source for complete part traceability. We will design your
network infrastructure, establish required handshaking, size
processors and power distribution, and more.
you need a single camera Cognex In-Sight Micro or Keyence IV, or a
full blown Gig-E system with multiple high resolution cameras,
we’ve done it all. We have experience with several different
manufacturers and software packages for vision inspection of all
kinds. From 18 cameras on a IPD Dalsa Sherlock system, or 8 5mp
color cameras on a Cognex VC5 mounted 10ft over an assembly line
verifying and archiving finished product, all the way to an IFM
Dualis, or a Banner iVu checking a bracket tucked under a
conveyor, we have the expertise to not only select the right
hardware for the job, but to install and integrate it into either
new or existing systems.
overhead frames are common in our systems. Everything from power
distribution for a single lockout point, to transair piping. Task
Lighting, LED Lighting for vision stations, cable tray, tool
balancers, operator fans, large format displays for vision systems
and anything else you require can be integrated. Part placement
assistance can be accommodated by either individual lasers,
overhead projector systems, or laser projection systems.
floor trenching, or cable walkways can be designed below the line
to allow for individual fixture cable management where workflow
does not allow overhead drops, as is typical when dealing with
large components and manual part transfers.
it comes to part handling, we have a large library of conveyor
systems, rotate systems, turntables, and grippers. From vacuum
based lift assists to multi-axis servo systems, we will find a way
to get your product from point A->B!
