End of Arm Tooling

End of arm tooling is critical to any large manufacturer, and IMS knows how to build tooling that is functional, durable, and precise. The design of each end of arm tool depends on the robot to which it will be attached. IMS can work with any weight capacity, maneuverability restriction, or placement constraint that may be present in your process.

Fixtures

Designing fixtures requires the complete understanding of what the customer hopes to accomplish, which is the reason that IMS designs better fixtures than any competitor. Communication with the customer is the most critical component of any design process, and at IMS, we go above and beyond to ensure that we thoroughly understand exactly what the customer needs. We design a fixture to exactly meet these needs, and then we build a final product that eliminates obstructions and allows the operator to do their job with ease and precision.

Inspection

The task of inspecting a product is perhaps the most critical step in a manufacturing process. IMS has designed inspection machines that utilize techniques from simple sensor inspection, to precision, high-speed vision inspection. We inspect every part and separate, or reject, any parts that do not meet the requirements set by the customer. We want to be absolutely sure that it is impossible for imperfect products to get passed our inspection processes, so, as general practice, we require our systems to confirm every rejection that is made before moving on.

Leak Testing

We integrate standard leak testing products and adapt them to a system that creates a complete seal on a specific part, analyzes pass/fail data from the leak test, and passes or rejects the part based on that data. If a part is rejected due to a failure indication from the leak testing unit, it will be separated from the others, and its removal must be confirmed by the system before the process can continue.

Material Handling

Material handling in the demanding economy of today’s world requires rugged, durable equipment capable of handling large quantities of parts or products. IMS has built countless devices that exactly match this description. We design our products to last. Each time we build equipment for material handling purposes, it is designed to easily handle the number of products the customer requires, and it is assembled by men who have spent a lifetime learning how to build equipment with incredible stability, durability, reliability, and sustainability.

Rotary Dial Indexers

IMS is extremely experienced in designing, building, and testing rotary-style automation systems. We have produced numerous systems that utilize one or more rotary dial indexers, which are incredibly versatile in the number and type of applications they can be used for. The benefits of using a rotary dial indexer on an assembly system include minimizing the size of the system, their ability to be re-tooled, or adapted, for other uses, and their relatively low cost makes them an economically advantageous tool. We will use a specific brand and model of dial indexer at the customer’s request, and we will use it to create a system that will surely impress anyone who has the opportunity to see it in action.

Shuttle & Blow Mechanisms

We have developed a shuttle and blow mechanism that has proved its functionality time and time again. It can be adapted for a wide variety of applications, and it is particularly useful in the special cases where space constraints within a building make it difficult to transfer parts from one location to another.

Turnkey Systems

A turnkey system is the “Mac Daddy” of automation systems. The turnkey systems produced at IMS are superior to those produced elsewhere due to the sophisticated methods we use to design, build, program, test, transport, and install them. Our turnkey systems accurately and efficiently perform any combination of, but not limited to, assembly, packaging, testing, inspection, feeding, counting, transferring, or marking functions. We design our turnkey systems to be independent, intelligent, high quality, and economical solutions that will improve the efficiency and quality of virtually any manufacturing process.

Work Cells

The work cells we build at IMS are great solutions for applications with demand for relatively low volumes of products, and they are perfect for applications with multiple part configurations. Our work cells are designed to allow the operator to quickly perform multiple tasks, easily transition from one task to the next, and work in a safe, low risk environment. Whether you require a standalone work cell, or a series of work cells, IMS has got you covered.
