|Metro Machine & Engineering Corp.
designs and builds Custom Automation Machines for production or other custom
Metro built automation machines feature state
of the art electronics, mechanisms and controls with emphasis on attention
to quality, footprint, maintainability and longevity. Metro's machinery
is consciously built to be solid, heavy duty, and totally suitable as needed
for short or long term production. No new machinery is built without due
regard to previous customers' proprietary interests.
As necessary, Metro can integrate equipment supplied by others
into Metro built Machine systems. Metro specializes in continuous motion assembly equipment but
is fully experienced in packaging equipment, automatic taping machines,
process machines, indexing motion, linear motion, pick and place machines,
robotics and the like. From this framework, Metro has developed a proficiency using
FDA approved materials and high quality commercial items such as servos,
ultra-sonic equipment, U-V devices, feeding systems, ink jet printing and
sophisticated control elements. Almost all Metro built machines utilize
computers and/or programmable controllers and feature displays to illustrate
performance and fault data. Metro's Control Engineers are accustomed to
in-process inspection, machine vision system part inspection, high speed process
control, laser technology, and management information systems.
|Metro's machine building protocol is based on over 50 years of experience designing and building
automation equipment systems capable of operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a
week. Metro systems can consist of a single machine or a multi-machine
Metro realizes that our supplying
quality equipment only partially sets us apart from other custom builders.
We believe our business strengths are that we listen to our customers,
we match our equipment operation and maintenance requirements to the abilities
of the using plant and we support - without question- our equipment during
and after start up. We prefer to work as a project team member and quickly
adapt to our customers' special preferences for equipment.
Metro understands that total project
performance includes on time deliveries. We recognize that customer need
dates are important. We take pride in our project management techniques
which include computerized scheduling.
For over 20 years, Metro has provided custom machinery to support the pharmaceutical and medical industries'
need for prototype or production assembly/process machinery handling a
range of product sizes from small to large and operating at production
speeds to 1600 - or more - parts per minute.
Metro is fully experienced as a supplier
for needle process machines; Epoxy or U-V Adhesive cure ovens; belt, chain or air conveyors; assembly
machines; process machines; inspection machines; labeling and taping machines;
packaging and boxing machines; sorting machines and filling machines. Metro
is also experienced in C.E. having built machines for the U.K., Ireland and France.
