The Micromatic Automation Systems Material Handling Advantage

Increase Productivity and Repeatability

Today's sophisticated automation systems utilize different material handling technologies to increase productivity and repeatability for more and consistent parts per hour. At Micromatic, we understand that every application needs to be analyzed for the best type of material handling solution given the customer's requirements.

To achieve increased productivity and repeatability, the engineers at Micromatic begin by collaborating with your team to determine the parameters we will be working within. Factors such as feed rate, part orientation, and space restrictions are just some of the basics we cover. With all your unique operating characteristics taken into account, we can then start to design your material handling solution.

Examples of type of parts handling solutions we have implemented in the past are:

  • Conveying systems - These systems use belts or rollers to convey parts from one work station to another
  • Gantry systems - These systems move parts to a rack or staging area where they are stored until needed in another assembly area
  • Robotic Assisted systems - These systems are partially or fully automated stations where robotics perform tasks where high precision and tight tolerances are demanded, or in environments humans cannot work

We combine this with our impressive quality inspection and verification processes. In order to ensure that the automation equipment is consistently producing good parts, inspection and verification stations are placed at strategic locations and these stations use a variety of techniques to inspect parts. They include:

  • Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT)
  • Vision
  • Air gauging

Whatever the material handling requirements may be, we are ready to meet them. Contact us today to begin the material handling solution that best fits your business needs.
