Assembly Machines in Industry

A machine is a mechanical assembly capable of using energy to perform tasks that can be classified into 4 main categories:

  • Using a tool and/or sensor
  • Moving a load
  • material to shape
  • Information to be processed

Their operation can be carried out under the guidance or not of an operator and in industry, the machines are generally fixed.

The design and production of industrial assembly machines require multidisciplinary know-how:

  • Robotics: integration and programming
  • Automation: use of programmable logic controllers
  • Mechatronics: management of mechanical, electronic and IT issues

The rise of machines began with the industrial revolution of the 19th century and the birth of industrial automation. The advantages sought then are still relevant and recent technical progress has further improved their characteristics:

  • Increase in quantities produced
  • Cost reduction
  • Quality improvement
  • Reinforcement of operator safety
  • Improved workstation ergonomics
  • Versatility of machines and assembly lines
  • Reduced energy needs
  • Reducing the ecological footprint of products and machines

Our Assembly Machine Skills

Since its creation in 1997, the assembly machine is ASM's core business.

Its design office, with its dual expertise in mechanics and automation, is able to meet the highest requirements of its customers. The multiple sectors of activity in which ASM has been called upon to intervene allow it today to offer an important and varied know-how:

  • From semi-assisted workstation to the fully automated assembly and test line
  • For single parts to more complex products with many parts to assemble
  • From the "quasi-constant" part (i.e. with very precise tolerances and dimensions, as for metal parts) to the more random product (with variable characteristics linked to the manufacturing process or the environment of the production, as in food products)
  • Up to high production rates
  • With manual settings or with self-adaptive software pre-configurations
  • From simple bulk filling at the line outlet to unitary and serialized packaging
  • From screen printing to programming RFID chips
  • From manual dispensing to vibrating bowls combined with vision and robots
  • From the pneumatic cylinder to the latest generations of robots

Our Achievements of Assembly Machines

With its design offices in mechanical design and automation, ASM's expertise ranges from the assembly station to the fully automated assembly line. Complex tools and dedicated test benches can also be specifically developed if your needs require it.
