Machine Concepts has the capacity to design, build, program and install custom automation equipment to meet your production needs. We are poised to take on your most challenging and complex projects. From conceptual design to operational equipment, Machine Concepts will work closely with you to determine the best mechanical or automated solution for your custom equipment and provide seamless support throughout the process. We are dedicated to helping you reduce production costs and improve product quality, operator safety and productivity.
Assembly Equipment, Test and Fixtures
Transform your assembly process with custom-built assembly equipment that increases productivity, reduces labor costs and improves quality. At Machine Concepts, we can design, build, test and install precisely what your factory floor needs to produce the highest quality in the shortest time possible.
Laser Marking Enclosures
Laser marking is becoming a common method for part identification and tracking. Machine Concepts can provide a custom CDRH compliant laser enclosure to meet your production needs. Whether it is a standalone unit or integrated into surrounding automation, Machine Concepts will design, build, program and integrate a laser marking system to meet your needs.
Custom Part Handling
Heavy-duty custom conveyors are an integral part of many automotive plants. Conveyors can consist of multiple components, including straight sections, turntables, rollovers, integrated lifts and many more. Machine Concepts can design and build all these units to meet the needs of the product and integrate them with other equipment for smooth flow.
Inside Diameter Pipe Grinder
Machine Concepts designed this portable pipe grinder that will roll into a pipe and extend up to match the diameter. With the pipe rotating, the grinder will grind the weld down smoothly to the inner wall of the pipe. This was designed for the oil drilling industry, which uses a long continuous pipe to reach the depths of oil cavities. Short pipes are welded together to achieve the proper length required. For good strength, the welds are large and protrude through the inside pipe wall. The inside diameter seams of the joined pipes must then be ground smooth to accommodate proper drilling function. Small inside diameter pipe welds are difficult and even impossible to grind by hand.
Die Inverter Machine
The die inverter machine hydraulically pulls dies apart and has the ability to rotate one die half 90°. The machine shown has a separating force of 40 metric ton and is rated for dies weighing up to 25 metric tons.
Die Inverter for flipping dies. To meet specific customer needs, this heavy-duty solution was custom designed and built.
Additional Custom Equipment Capabilities
Part Shakers can be used to remove machining chips or other unwanted particles from workpieces. We can design a shaker with a custom fixture plate that can be removed via quick disconnects for quick model changes.
Reducing cycle times is a key driver for automation. This automatic reamer designed and built by Machine Concepts processes the part through three stages of reamers, reducing cycle time while maintaining linear product flow.
Part manipulation can range from complex to simple. We used multiple different methods on this oiler to separate and orient the parts for correct oil coverage.
Part cleaning can be a difficult process. Machine Concepts designed and built this oil slinger to remove excess oil from a gear during its machining process. This design can be customized to fit your part and available machine space.
Part Inspection Manipulator
Repeated part handling can be an ergonomic nightmare. A part manipulator with intuitive joystick controls can allow for each part to be inspected by an operator without requiring them to physically lift and rotate each part.
Some processes during production require the workpiece to be located and clamped. Machine Concepts will study the workpiece closely for opportunities to locate and clamp without affecting the quality of the end product.
