Engineered automation to optimize your manufacturing.
To remain competitive, today’s manufacturers leverage automation services and robotic machines to increase factory productivity and decrease costs, which drives up your profits.
Our specialty is delivering engineered automation, or ways to remove variation, especially the human element.
You’ll find that custom-designed, flexible automation solutions can maximize quality, eliminate variables impacting reliability, and significantly improve your speed to market. Our more than 20 years of cross-industry experience and knowledge help fuel our creative approach and project performance objectives.
A Preferred Supplier to Manufacturing Companies in Multiple Industries
Summit Engineered Automation is a preferred supplier to numerous manufacturing companies. We’ve completed projects in a variety of industries — medical, plastics, electronics, manufacturing and consumer products — with a focus on medical technology.
Explore these innovative projects ranging from a robotic medical assembly device to a vision inspection system and a bag-in-a-box valve assembly machine.
Agile Project Management Processes Ensure Your Machine Meets Your Needs
Using our agile project management process, we use a range of products and capabilities to design and build machines that precisely meet your needs. Summit has diverse experience integrating robots, PLCs, sensors, testing and visions systems, conveyors, adhesives and other technologies for the ideal automated machine.
Over time, we’ve built our agile project management processes on four cornerstones:
- Emphasize risk analysis early and throughout
- Enhance communications between all parties
- Ensure the machine exceeds your expectations
- Develop long-term partnerships on multiple projects
The secret to employing agile practices is a close partnership with your team. Early collaboration, transparent communications, proof of concepts, and iterative early design ensure we deliver a final product that meets all of your requirements.
We employ ingenuity and intelligent design that emphasizes early risk analysis for specific applications before we complete them. We also test your equipment and components to verify each is working to your performance specs and requirements before delivery, reducing risk and lost time due to maintenance downtime. During implementation and your factory acceptance test (FAT), we work together to safely transport and install your new equipment.
In addition to guiding every project we design and build for you, our agile processes makes it easy for you to access time and material costs plus ROI estimates through your customized portal.
