Birmingham-based specialist manufacturing company Mechatronic Solutions has seen a surge in demand for its bespoke automation systems with an order for 26 automated assembly benches.
At a time of year when manufacturing can traditionally slow down, this has provided the company with an exceptional boost to sales and a very busy period of production is anticipated for the summer months.
A spokesperson for the company said:
“We’re delighted to be able to help our client by producing this large order.
“Despite the relatively short notice, we will be delivering a range of 26 brand new automated assembly benches units on time, enabling our client to further automate their production processes.
“These manually loaded machines will be clipping, Inspecting and labelling a variety of interior and exterior automotive mouldings, helping the client to streamline their production process. The assembly benches are tooled to poke yoke and insert a range of automotive clips from J clips to Raymond metal spring clips.
“The automation systems provided are both fast and accurate, thereby allowing the client to increase their speed and efficiency. The accuracy also means less wastage and reduced burden on quality control.”
