AMT grain trailer body manufacturing

Timpte Grain Trailer Body Manufacturing Analysis

Timpte, a commercial grain trailer body manufacturer wanted to increase production by 75% without hiring additional staff. AMT conducted a Current State Manufacturing Analysis (CSMA) to identify a course of action to help Timpte meet future production goals.


AMT case study Wolverine Forest Park

Wolverine Forest Park - Production and Pack Out Automation

Wolverine Packing Co. needed a high-speed automated case packing and palletizing solution for the company’s new greenfield meat processing facility in Forest Park, MI. The equipment needed to be installed in several distinct phases to accommodate the facility’s startup timeline and evolving needs.


AMT fiberglass manufacture line automation

Fiberglass Manufacture Line Automation

AMT was engaged on a project to upgrade an existing Rockwell Automation Allen-Bradley PLC-5 to ControlLogix platform and implement a new product tracking system utilizing carrier barcode and product packing label generation in handshake with an ERP system.


AMT case study aerospace

Aerospace Safety System

In mid-2018, a well-known aerospace company tasked AMT with designing a safety system at a test facility. Their current arrangement was an open environment with multiple robots performing tasks without any kind of safety guarding in place to control human access to operating workspaces.


Polywood Outdoor Furniture

An outdoor furniture company reached out to AMT to evaluate their operation for automation potential. After a thorough analysis, AMT determined that prior to integrating a new system, their process would have to implement process solutions to increase throughput and efficiency.


Manufacturing System Throughput Simulation

Read how AMT performed system throughput simulation (or discrete event) for a major project and implemented a more efficient plan.


System Throughput Analysis

A dental appliance manufacturer needed to increase production in their Mexico plant and believed that part of their process would create a bottleneck. AMT helped them make the necessary changes to the conveyor software, saving them approximately $350,000.


Automated Spool Pack-Out Project

For a major glass manufacturer, AMT produced a complete quotation including engineering and build. The Integrator completed the installation of the first system and there are several more on the schedule.


Alternative Energy Manufacturing Initiative

When a startup solar company was struggling to transition from the prototype level to large-scale manufacturing, AMT developed an initial workout period, saving them approximately $1.2 million and developing them into a high-volume, global manufacturer.
