Mitee-Bite Products specializes in high density workholding applications and provides solutions for hard to hold parts. A perfect example: extremely thin wall close tolerance aerospace part in several sizes with no possibility of being mechanically held. High Point Tool & Machine is no stranger to these applications. A quick discussion with a MB Engineer and HPT opted for our Rotary Vacuum System and couldn't be more pleased with the results.
The Case of the Self-Destructing End Mills Sometimes all it takes is the right person in the right place at the right time to solve a productivity mystery. Andy Joerg, Owner of Custom Precision, went in search of a good machining detective when faced with a job that was eating up end mills at a rapid rate. Full Article
Watch how nine UR cobots deployed at the manufacturer's plant in Ohio open new avenues of growth in what management calls "a revolution." By automating hard-to-staff tasks such as machine tending, assembly, and product inspection, the cobots optimize production and provide a better work environment. Future rollout plans include an additional 40 UR cobots.
EXAIR's Line Vac connects to standard hose or tube to create a powerful conveyor. The design features large throat diameters for maximum throughput capability. A small amount of compressed air is injected through directed nozzles to produce a vacuum on one end and high output flows on the other.
MedicoPack was looking to implement collaborative automation to optimize the process of collecting, inspecting, and packaging hospital drip bags. After deploying grippers from OnRobot to automate the handling and stacking process, they were able to significantly increase productivity by reducing cycle time and contamination risk.
Precision tools and gages require close tolerance work. At Starrett manufacturing operations in Athol, Massachusetts U.S.A., engineers, machinists and assemblers design and make thousands of different tools -- many that measure the same tools they make. Key industries such as aerospace, medical, energy and defense have relied on Starrett precision for well over a century. [color-blue]Available Now -- Buy American Made!
