Precision automated assembly for complex products
Customers often come to us with a metal stamping assignment, only to discover sophisticated assembly capabilities far beyond a typical job shop. At ESI, we know that stamped parts are often just one component of a more complex assembly.
But rather than source part components from several stampers or fabricators, and then assembling your completed parts in-house, consider finding a manufacturer that provides several services. ESI specializes not only in metal stamping complex and highly engineered parts, but also in automated assembly.
Working with an automation partner, particularly one with expertise in a number of manufacturing disciplines, yields a number of benefits for your business. Namely, production rates increase while your costs decrease.
By consolidating the manufacturing of multiple components of an assembly to one company, you can remove almost all shipping delays and costs from your production process. Additionally, your partner’s automation capabilities will help you to assemble more completed parts at a considerably faster rate than your own standard assembly methods.
The ESI Difference: Assembly + Inspection
ESI can produce millions of parts with 100% quality assurance—and dramatically reduce or eliminate the labor cost. These features make ESI uniquely equipped for automotive, aerospace, energy, medical and other advanced assembly applications.
Even the most considerable time and cost savings from your production process will mean nothing if the goods you receive from your automated assembly partner are not up to your quality standards.
At ESI, we understand that quality defects, even on a small scale or in a small part, can have serious ramifications across your final product. That is why we worked to develop a unique, fully customized assembly machine with an integrated vision-based inspection.
The vision inspection system we use is so powerful that it checks dozens of specified tolerance criteria in just milliseconds. With this technology, we inspect every single assembled part without slowing down production, and with results far more accurate than a human inspector spot checking a fraction of produced parts.
With our automated assembly machines and vision-based inspection technology — both of which we are constantly improving as new technologies emerge — ESI can guarantee part runs in the millions with near-zero defects.
ESI is renowned for the high quality of the complex stamped metal parts that we produce. Equally as impressive are our automated assembly capabilities, which include the following specifications:
- High volume assemblies
- High-speed video inspection
- Complex mechanical assemblies
- Robotic assembly
