Assembly Line Integration

Our machines can be incorporated into assembly lines for part processing and return to the line upon successful processing and inspection. Parts that do not pass inspection can be placed into a temporary holding location for manual inspection at a later time.

Machine Retrofit and Safety Integration

From time-to-time, a machine may require modifications to extend or improve operational performance. These modifications can be to decrease cycle time, update components, or to add safety features to an existing piece of equipment.

This machine, a chop saw, required installation of a braking resistor to assist with the rapid deceleration of the saw motor. Berran sized the resistor based on the installed motor and fabricated the appropriate housing. The completed assembly was then installed into the machine frame.

In addition to installation of a braking resistor, the controls were updated to include a modern variable frequence drive (VFD) and safety controller. The drive, controller, and all associated wiring was installed, verified, and programmed in-house at our facility.

In this case, the customer requested addition of an air blowoff to the machine. A pressure regulator, tubing, and blowoff were installed per their request.

Custom Vertical Facing

Single-station machinery for milling and facing of plastic parts. Machine features servo controls with recipe-based operation for part-specific operation.

Laser Marker with Visual Inspection

Vision Inspection with Sorting

Our laser marking machines can incorporate vision systems to verify the marking and its contents. In this example, a part is being marked with an alpha-numeric string that is read using an OCR-capable vision system. Once parts are verified, they are sorted and either placed onto the good part conveyor or reject bin chute.

Laser Marker with Robot

Load, Start, and Unload

With a few lines of code, a robot (or co-bot) can be added to one of our laser marking machines. The robot can use a palletizing program to load parts prior to starting a marking cycle. Then, upon completion of the cycle, the robot can be used to unload the marked part.
