Our team provides proactive and timely communication on project issues and concerns. Project Managers are involved early on, during the bid phase, and continue until project closeout. We document and manage change on all projects through our change management process. Our project managers have a deep understanding of technical concepts and build partnerships, internally and externally, at the technical level.
Our team studies the customer’s documentation and needs and then analyze the system using industry standards, physical constraints and end result demands to produce a solution for the draft/final bid process. The system layout is developed taking into account the overall process, management and organization of the facility.
Using the latest technologies for virtual robot simulation, our engineers validate and optimize the robot application to accommodate the cycle time, degrade modes, appearance and quality requirements. This offline process is used to optimize the work cell needed, safety requirements (RIA standards), specifications for custom controls design and to determine the best solution, while keeping the capital investment as low as possible.
Our team will use the Process Study and the Robot Simulation design to create a complete set of mechanical specifications and drawings in AutoCad or SolidWorks. These mechanical documents are used to set the correct 3-dimensional location (within a 2-3mm tolerance) for robot placement. This allows the offline simulations to transfer to the real world (online) seamlessly and allows shorter start-up and commissioning times onsite.
We are experts in various hardware and software systems and are able to design an integrated solution that meets customer expectations. We use various controls platforms and interfaces, including Allen Bradley GuardLogix, Siemens S7, Mitsubishi, RSView and custom Visual Basic or Visual C# interfaces.
No project is closed until the final support documents; reference manuals and operating and maintenance procedures are handed over to our customer. Some support document examples being Maximo (GM), TEMS (FORD) and WCM (Fiat Chrysler) document standards.
We provide various solutions to our customers, including; Time and Material, Fixed Price agreements, Spare Parts and Training solutions.
We provide Robotic Health Assessments to older installed systems in facilities around the world.
