Midwest Egineering Systems- Process Design Specialists

Midwest Engineering Systems now offers robotic laser deburring, random robotic bin picking, process development programs, and concept testing processes.

Midwest Engineering Systems Inc., an innovative provider of premier custom machines and integrated systems now offers more unique automation technology.


Since the beginning of 2014, Midwest Engineering Systems has seen an increase in manufacturing companies interested in implementing automation and robotic systems into their operations. In order to support the growing manufacturing industry, Midwest Engineering Systems has expanded their capabilities and services to include robotic laser deburring, robotic bin picking, process development programs, and concept testing processes.

• Robotic Laser Deburring: Automating the process of removing burrs and edges using a high-powered laser. This new technology has many advantages over conventional deburring techniques when removing burrs around intersecting holes. technology has the advantage of no consumable tooling, dynamic edge processing control, and virtually no fixuring. The result is a product that can be cleaned before deburr processing and requires no post deburr cleaning.

• Random Robotic Bin Picking: The ability to locate and pick randomly piled parts from a bin, using a robot and vision system. Robots can verify the correct gripping position to pick up parts and place them in a second location. Further capacities include:
o Distinguishing the desired part from garbage or part with incorrect features
o Deep bin picking up to 4'
o Not just part extraction but picking with part orientation
o Identifying parts and their orientation regardless of surface finish, shine, rust, color, etc.
o Robotic mechanical gripper and magnetic end effector configurations

• Process Development Programs and Concept Testing Processes: Using quantitative and qualitative methods to evaluate automation equipment designs and functionality before building a complete final system. MWES provides complete Design of Experiments (DOE) testing, process capability testing for Cp and Cpk as well complete prototyping so that you will know your process capability before you invest in the automated production line.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
