Methods is focused on technologies such as full turnkeys that includes automation, vision software, system controls, cell controllers, inspection, fixtures, tooling, and third party equipment as required.
In addition to the R&D efforts that transpire at Methods, a second core focus of the business is the integration of machine tools into manufacturing environments. Methods focuses on technologies which optimize machine tools and assist in the development of a full production process, otherwise known as a Turnkey Solution.
Turnkeys can encompass multiple elements including:
- Infeed/Outfeed Systems (bar feeders, conveyers, bowl feeders, bin picking, gravity chutes, etc.)
- Cell Controllers
- System Controls
- Automation (robotics, pneumatics, hydraulics, etc.)
- Vision Software
- Inspection Methodologies
- Production Monitoring
- Set-up Reduction
- Elements of Lean Manufacturing
Regardless of the application, the Methods team will explore viable products and machine options in efforts to engineer a robust solution to satisfy the customer’s needs.
