AUTOMATION 

EMBRACE TOMORROW’S TECHNOLOGY

Automation is transforming the world of manufacturing, finishing, assembly and packaging, lowering costs and improving quality. RōBEX experience and expertise in our focus industries includes system design, engineering, fabrication, installation and workforce engagement. Our core competency is industrial contracting and our uncommon experience and expertise leads us to design, engineer and “create” custom purpose-built equipment as part of our “single source” commitment to customers.

MANUFACTURING CAPABILITY

RōBEX has a global affiliation with one of the world’s leading custom manufacturers that enables us to solve customer production line problems in a timely, cost-effective manner. We know that every production facility has its own unique design, layout, systems and requirements. Not every critical component is “off the shelf”, so we often design and engineer specific solutions and engage the global expertise of our multi-location manufacturing partner to produce that equipment.

RōBEX adheres to a very high standard of excellence as the benchmark for all of our projects. Thanks to our global manufacturing partners, we are able to design, engineer and deliver superior custom-built machines and tools to improve quality and reduce costs in virtually any industry.

MATERIAL HANDLING & AUTOMATION

RōBEX provides innovative, engineered solutions that optimize production systems. We may analyze existing systems, integrate conveyors and robot-based automation to enhance workflow and operator safety.

PALLET CONVEYORS

RōBEX designs, engineers and installs pallet conveyors to handle normal sizes or those with weights up to several thousand pounds. Typically, they must be flexible and durable enough to integrate with forklift transfer.

TURNTABLE

Industrial turntables quickly position a load for processing or packaging. RōBEX can specify, design and install. The way a turntable is loaded (rolled, slid, or picked) and weight capacity are critical elements.

TRANSFERS

Efficiently moving production pieces between work stations depends on size and shape, distance and more. Conveyors, rail cars or extended range robots are possibilities. RōBEX will design/install what works best.

CASE SORTATION

Sortation conveyors vary based on sort rate per minute (30-200 CPM) and whether purely mechanical or tracked by PLCs, relays or computers. Automated systems use robotic tracking, stacking and moving.

PALLET DISPENSER

Automatic pallet dispensers eliminate the need for humans in palletizing lines, robotic work cells, order picking and selecting. RōBEX will design, engineer and install the system that is optimal for your application.

CHAIN CONVEYOR

Moving heavy loads between work stations or to a palletizing operation is ideally suited to a chain conveyor. RōBEX has several propriety Chain Conveyor designs or can design/fabricate to meet your needs.

3D SIMULATION

Seeing an elegant, automated solution in 3D brings a “peace of mind” to clients and engineers. AutoCAD technology simulates complex operating systems. We also print precision parts in carbon fiber and other materials.

AUTOMATION SYSTEM CONTROLS

Manufacturing quality requires well-maintained production equipment and intelligent RōBEX control systems including control panel design, labeling and barcode systems, traditional/wireless data tracking and staff training.
