ENGINEERING SERVICES & SOLUTIONS
Automated Test Equipment
With over 25 years experience developing custom designed test equipment, we have designed and built individual automated work cells, moving factory test loops capable of testing finished products as they move down the production line, and simple gauges. Our solutions give the test engineer several tools to make it easier to manage their system; like the ability to manage the test sequences/ limits associated with each model, collect test results and store in SQL databases or external MES systems, and provide web based statistics and reports of the testing process.

Robotic Assembly and Testing
Automate your processes
We work with several robotic solutions including Fanuc, Universal Robotics, and Kuka to provide you a professional industrial automation solution. Our goal is to provide a robust solution to help you increase quality and productivity as well as prevent operator injuries. We can help you decide between a collaborative robot versus a traditional robot for your particular application. Our experience includes projects for pick and place, vision assisted assembly, and automated product test cells.
Integration of industrial Vision Systems
Working with several industrial vision manufacturers we provide a robust integrated solution for your vision inspection and verification challenges. Focusing on the selecting the right camera and lighting is key to providing a robust solution. We offer solutions that allow easy integration of vision results into plant databases and MES systems.
Laboratory Test Systems
Large-Scale Data Acquisition to collect power measurements, temperatures, flow rates, etc. Back-end workflow analysis to manage the data collection rates, prompt the lab operator during the testing process, as well as the ability to store all data into SQL databases for reporting and graphical charting of results.
* Electrical System Testing
* NVH Analysis
* Temperature Testing
* Leak and Flow Testing
* Detailed Audit Type Testing
* Product Checkout
* Product Reliability
* Web Based Single Page Application Interfaces for Lab Management and Reporting
Automating your factory with Industry 4.0 Technology
We have implemented several applications that give our customers the ability to automate administrative, productivity and quality processes. These solutions are built these using a graphical low-code workflow editor that provides you the ability to extend and manage these yourselves.
Operator Work Instructions: Automatically displaying images to production workers based on product bar-code scans. A web application is provided to associate the uploaded work instruction images with the models scanned.
Defect Tracking: collecting defect data from production operators from fixed operator interfaces, portable tablets or handheld bar-code scanners to provide real-time graphs and product heat-map charts on factory screens or supervisors web pages.
Process Control Charts: automatically collecting variable quality data from machines/PLCs via OPC-UA or various PLC protocols to provide real-time control charts on the factory screens as well as data collection into SQL databases.
Production Tracking: collecting and reporting quality test data from Automation Test Equipment using an open RESTful API to provide real-time statistics and product embargo/verification checkpoints
Sub-Assembly/Component Verification and Tracking: Open RESTful API to track component or sub-assemblies to a finished production, providing a database of product/component serial number associations. Verification of components parts to the finished product to confirm the product matches bill of material requirements.
