HOW WE SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS

Scaling Automation to Meet Your Needs

Automated, semi-automated, or manual—we ask the right questions to design and build a system that supports your production goals, environment, and staff.

MANUAL
STATIONS
Manual stations provide assembly and inspection tools to help increase the efficiency of a tedious process by making it less cumbersome and more ergonomic.
Image
SEMI-AUTOMATED
SYSTEMS
Semi-automated systems allow you to retain the adaptability of an operator’s input while integrating automation that helps reduce human error, improve safety, or decrease cycle-time.
Image
FULLY-AUTOMATED
SYSTEMS
Fully-automated systems can help increase production volumes without increasing workforce—especially when your product will be manufactured long-term.

PRODUCTION
LINES
Production lines combine automation with assembly, test, and inspection technology to help you manufacture products with consistency and reliability.

Controls Engineering

Gain unparalleled flexibility by integrating multiple,
diverse controls functions.

Invotec’s controls engineering solutions unify your analog, digital, vision, LabView, and robotics systems to boost productivity. Whether you need to integrate systems on a single station or connect an entire production line, we ensure all of your controls systems work
together so that you can choose the platforms that make the most sense for your business.

CORE COMPETENCIES:

  • HMI
  • LabView
  • Motion Control
  • Robotics
  • Vision
  • Visual Basic

 
 

Error Proofing

Reduce the risk of field rejects with automated inspection
and validation systems.

We assess your needs, your processes, your plant environment, and your operator capabilities before selecting sensors that match
your level of complexity and requirements. You gain a robust system that increases throughput, reduces cost, and protects your reputation.

CORE COMPETENCIES:

  • Assembly Verification
  • Force Profiling
  • Sensor/Vision Application
  • Torque Profiling

Machine Vision Systems

Improve quality, increase productivity, and reduce costs with automated machine vision systems that validate product alignment and orientation.

We source, build, program, and train your vision system to meet the most exacting standards. Our recommendations are based on your requirements as well as your environmental conditions and production staff capabilities to ensure you invest in a system that is best suited for your operations.

CORE COMPETENCIES:

  • Assembly Error-Proofing
  • Identification
  • Dimensional Inspection
  • Vision-Guided Assembly

 
 

Mechanical Assembly Systems

Turn complex assembly of high-precision parts into a repeatable,
consistent process.

From crimping to pressing to force/distance monitoring and staking, our engineers dig into your requirements to determine the best systems for your devices, your environment, and your production staff. The result: You invest in systems that offer the appropriate force to securely connect parts without causing damage, lessening your risk of field rejections.

CORE COMPETENCIES:

  • Crimping
  • Force/Distance Monitoring
  • Pressing
  • Material Handling
  • Staking
  • Torque/Angle Profiling

Micro Laser Processing

Expert laser processing solutions allow for the most intricate operations to be conducted at less cost and at lower risk for field rejects.

From laser welding to laser marking to laser ablation, we build systems that operate at tight tolerance levels. Our years of experience sourcing and building laser systems provides us with the insight to develop solutions that protect operator safety, efficiently remove byproducts, and integrate with visioning systems.

CORE COMPETENCIES:

  • Ablation
  • Cutting
  • Part ID (Marking)
  • Traceability
  • Precision Welding

 
 

Precision Joining

When field failures could result in catastrophic consequences, you need a precision joining solution that operates to the highest standards.

We expertly assess your assembly needs and your overall production process to recommend the best solution for your end product. We can help you integrate your automated precision joining equipment with your production line to create repeatable and consistent processes that cut your production costs while reducing the risk of rejects.

CORE COMPETENCIES:

  • Adhesive Dispensing
  • Automated Soldering
  • Heat Staking
  • Resistance Welding
  • Riveting
  • Spot Welding
  • Ultrasonic Welding
  • Vision-Guided Laser Welding

Process Development

Mitigate risk by discovering what parts of your production process are a good fit for automation.

We understand that fully-automating a process isn’t always the answer—especially when products involve multiple, intricate sub-assemblies. With feasibility and prototyping, we help you clearly define your goals and return on investment to determine what kind of system meets your budgetary needs as well as the manufacturing goals of your product.

CORE COMPETENCIES:

  • Feasibility
  • Protoype Tooling
  • Proof-of-Concept
 
 

Test Systems

Ensure greater confidence in your parts with sophisticated, automated test processes.

From final assembly verification to force simulation to electrical testing and more, we develop flexible testing systems to improve productivity while increasing product acceptance. Ensure your devices will withstand field conditions by thoroughly testing them before they get in the hands of your customers.

CORE COMPETENCIES:

  • Assembly Verification
  • Force Simulation
  • Functional Testing
  • Electrical Testing
  • Leak Testing
  • Validation
