IMTS 2014 - Midwest Engineering Systems Exhibiting at IMTS with ABB Robotics

Midwest Engineering Systems, an ABB Robotics Value Provider, will be featured in the ABB Robotics booth during IMTS, displaying random robotic bin picking technology.

Midwest Engineering Systems Inc., an innovative provider of premier custom machines and integrated systems will be featured in the ABB Robotics exhibit at IMTS 2014 (International Manufacturing Technology Show).



IMTS 2014 is a premier manufacturing technology show in North America, taking place at McCormick Place complex in Chicago, IL on September 8-13, 2014. 1,900 exhibiting companies with occupy 1.2 Million square feet of exhibit space. Exhibiting companies are in industries such as: metal cutting, tooling & work holding systems, metal forming, & industrial automation. Manufacturing industry professionals from all over the world attend IMTS to see more than 15,000 new machine tools, controls, computers, software, components, robotic systems and processes that can improve their efficiency.


Midwest Engineering Systems, an ABB Robotics Value Provider, will be featured in the ABB Robotics booth and display new industrial robot technology. Midwest Engineering Systems has integrated a random robotic bin-picking cell to be on display during the expo. This demonstration will highlight robotic picking using a SICK 3D vision system that tracks, replicates, and maps the surrounding bin-picking environment.


Midwest Engineering System's integrated bin picking systems are capable of:
• Distinguishing the desired part from ‘rejected' parts with incorrect features
• Deep bin picking up to 4'
• Identifying parts and their orientation regardless of surface finish, shine, rust, or color
• Robotic mechanical gripper and magnetic end effector configurations
• 3D vision camera integration

Discover the power of Omron mobile robotics.

Our fully autonomous intelligent vehicles will help you to transform the way you move materials and route your workflows. Increase throughput, eliminate material flow errors, improve traceability, maximize flexibility and allow your employees to focus on higher level tasks. Unlike traditional AGV's, our mobile robotics navigate using the natural features of your facility and do not require expensive facility modifications or guidance. Our AIV's can adapt to changes in their environment and work freely and safely with your staff. Our mobile robots are intelligent enough to quickly learn their environment and then automatically find the optimal path to where they need to go. They also automatically make adjust for dynamic environments and can work together in fleets of up to 100 robots.
