We call it build because it involves more than processes like machining and fabrication when it comes to electrics, electronics, hydraulics and robotics. This approach increases our wide vision towards future. We involve all different kinds of methods in building our concepts.
We established strong connection with our partner suppliers to give you the best value at best price, so you don’t need to look further once your design is complete. We have suppliers in Melbourne and interstate to assist us in the manufacture. Day by day we are advancing in our machinery and workforce by the help of our clients aiming to keep all work in-house. We wish to let you to look at the big picture while we take care of details.
Step1: Material Acquisition
Many years of Australian workshop experience allows us to find correct material whether it be inside Australia or overseas. We believe selection of material is very critical to minimize costs related to manufacture. The similar raw material is to the end product, the less will be the manufacturing cost. We have an array of suppliers to use in purchase of steel, plastic, wood, and other materials at best rates.
As per our standards, we request material certificates from our suppliers where needed and keep them for future reference. We inspect the material as it arrives us to make sure it conforms to the certificate presented. Only when the material passes our quality check, we put it into production. We keep a database to track the history of a material and stamp numbers on materials to make sure your products are being manufactured with correct materials even later on. Once all checks are complete we are ready to manufacture your product.
Manufacturing is to transform a raw material to a product following engineer specifications. Manufacturing may involve processes like machining, laser cutting, turret punching, water jet cutting, oxy cutting, bending, rolling, welding, guillotining… All these processes are put into hierarchical order by our production planners to achieve the desired outcome. Selection of correct manufacturing processes is very crucial. Wrong methods of manufacturing processes can lead to loss of time and money.
Our engineers have hands on workshop experience in Australia and overseas and they are able to make right decisions about the type of manufacturing processes. We choose the most suitable method which gives the best value with lowest cost. We try to pass on these benefits to our customers to build a strong relationship.
We partnered with reliable companies to build our products with the latest technology manufacturing practices. We also employ experienced, skilled tradesmen to bring your ideas into reality.
Coating may be functional or decorative or both. Coating is a very wide term which may involve wet painting, powder coating, sandblasting, anodizing, zinc plating… On the other hand; stickers, labels, seals, insulation pay a great role as well. Functional coatings may be applied to change the surface properties of the substrate, such as adhesion, wet-ability, corrosion resistance, or wear resistance and the like. For example, in semiconductor device fabrication, the coating adds a completely new property, such as a magnetic response or electrical conductivity, and forms an essential part at a later stage.
Even properties like thickness of the coating play great role in the long run as it effects the wear and tear of the product. We coat your product in the most suitable processes as per our predefined instructions. Our trusted suppliers help us to achieve maximum reliability on the coating that we apply to our manufactured products. We quality check our coated products to make sure they are as per engineer specifications. Once the coating is done we start assembling the parts.
Many products consist of several sub-components which are assembled together. We design the product to include assemblies and sub-assemblies in a logical order. Coated parts are connected using different kinds of assembly methods. We use well known assembly practices like bolting, screwing, bonding, riveting etc. We try our best to design products with less welding requirements since the design world is moving toward modular applications where interchangeable components play a great role.
Therefore we use standard parts and joints in our designs to make it allowable for replacements of parts and modules later on. We use Australian standard fixings to make sure our products perform well even after years. Assembly may involve mechanic components as well as electric, electronic and hydraulic components. We are qualified to install most types of applications, the ones we are not, we get our reliable, certified contractors to perform so all of our work is guaranteed for end user usage.
Step5: Electrical, Hydraulics & Pneumatics
Nowadays many products involve electrics, electronics and hydraulics within their structure. We join mechanical proficiency along with electrics, electronics and hydraulics to engineer the best working product in the market. Selection of correct wiring and supply is a major part of the mechanism.
On the other hand electronics deals with electrical circuits that involve active electrical components such as vacuum tubes, transistors, diodes, integrated circuits, opto electronics, and sensors, associated passive electrical components, and interconnection technologies. End product may require a simple circuit or an advanced switchboard to run. We are capable of design and install of all kinds of wires, motors, generators, batteries, switches, relays, transformers, resistors. Our qualified electricians wire electrical components as per electrical diagrams drawn.
Another important section of the design is the hydraulics. Hydraulics is the control of power using pressurized fluids. We use best quality hydraulic components such as pumps, valves, filters, cylinders… We draw hydraulic diagram and simulate it to find solutions for different applications. Once the mechanical, electrical and hydraulic fit-out is ready, we program the product.
We have expert skills in PLC & HMI programming. We have been installing these controllers for the last 10 years. We take the data from the environment using sensors and use this information to program the actuators. This theory works for applications from a very small machine to large size machines. We generally use Alen Bradely, Siemens but we can program other PLC’s as well… We can install and configure world leading brands of CNC controllers like Fanuc, Sinumerik, Mitsubishi….
Furthermore, we have low cost solutions available like Chinese manufactured controllers. We also provide even cheaper controllers like MACH3, EMC2. We use low cost PC’s as a virtual machine using Labview Software to control machines. This software is capable enough to control everything you can imagine. We made a couple of projects on Labview. One of them was a 6 axis robotic arm. In terms of AC & DC servo programming the parameterization for dual closed loop is our main expertise. We use Yaskawa, Panasonic, Mitsubishi, Omron and more…
We can program any kind of machine up to 6 axis. We also provide machine programming service, so if you have a machine but you don’t have a programmer we can assist you as well. We programmed different kinds of CNC, Fiber Laser, Turret Punch, Waterjet, Drilling, Woodworking, Metal Cutting & Routing machines and many more… We also set up and program robots and robot cells to undertake different processes like welding, handling, painting and the like. We have a lot to offer to help you in every stage of your journey. When programming is complete we perform a test run of the product.
Step7: Test Run
Once programming is complete, we test run the product to observe the performance and make necessary adjustments. Our clients are also invited to take part in this great milestone in transforming the idea into reality. Product is tested for set amount of time under different settings and environments as advised by the engineers.
Results are recorded by our engineers and compiled to a report to discuss the amendments with our client. This is one of the most exciting moments of the whole process. All findings of the test run are conveyed to the client to decide on production. If the product passes the test, full production is undertaken to fulfill the client order.
Step8: Quality Control
Product that comes out from the manufacturing line are individually quality controlled and marked with serial numbers. This system allows us to track back the record of the item to continuously improve design and processes. Our quality control specialists prepare lists to use while checking marking necessary dimensions, tolerances, coating criteria etc. These properties are checked with attention to make sure all products are fulfilling the design intend. We label or stamp products with quality control check details so that we can find out what went wrong if a product fails.
These details are kept in logs to provide us correct information about when, who and how the product was quality controlled. We are very meticulous about quality control and we stress on these principles in all of our meetings with the employees. We believe only by serious quality control measures products will be valuable and selected by consumers. Once all required checks are complete, products proceed to logistics process for packaging and shipment.
