Assembly Systems

Part feeding in the automation industry has evolved to include a number of potential technologies. This choice can be a critical step in a successful automation system. One of the hallmarks of PMD’s reputation is the broad expertise with different feeding technologies. We design systems daily for a wide variety of part geometries, sizes and markets which all have different requirements.

Using an engineering based team approach for each application, we accommodate the part tolerance andother variations into the tooling at the design phase. Providing the right equipment for our clients is just one of the things that bring people back.
