Material Handling in Ann Arbor, MI

Nov 4, 2013

A Michigan based company, UBE Machinery Inc., is a major injection molding company that is benefiting from automation. In several robotic companies, as seen with Fanuc robotics, robots help to built other robots and manufacturer products for years.


Ann Arbor, Michi­gan is not just home to the Uni­ver­si­ty of Michi­gan Wolver­ines. It is also the home to sev­er­al dif­fer­ent indus­tri­al man­u­fac­tur­ers. In the last few decades, many of these same man­u­fac­tur­ers have been turn­ing to robot­ic automa­tion to improve their facil­i­ty oper­a­tions from day to day.

UBE Machin­ery Inc. is one of many Michi­gan-based injec­tion mold­ing com­pa­nies that can ben­e­fit from automa­tion. Based in Ann Arbor, UBE builds plas­tics mold­ing and met­al cast­ing tech­nolo­gies for com­pa­nies around the world. But who builds their sys­tems? Well that’s where robots can come into play. Not only can robots be cast as the star in a robot­ic sys­tem or work cell, but they can also fab­ri­cate and build robot­ic sys­tems. In sev­er­al robot­ic com­pa­nies, like Fanuc Robot­ics, robots have been build­ing oth­er robots and sys­tems for years.

Maybe you don’t want your robot­ic sys­tem to han­dle and assem­ble sys­tem parts. Maybe, instead, you need your robots to trans­port, load or pal­letize some­thing that is dif­fi­cult for humans to lift. This is where com­pa­nies like Edwards Broth­ers Mal­loy can be assist­ed through robot­ic automa­tion. The book print­ing busi­ness brings a lot of weight in a small size. Even small box­es of paper and book print­ing runs can be heavy, tedious or injury-induc­ing for the aver­age labor­er to lift day after day for years. With robot automa­tion, this is no longer an issue.

So where do the Wolver­ines get their robot­ic sys­tems and parts? Well, despite being in their sworn enemy’s state, we hope that they will come to Ohio – Mar­i­on, Ohio to be pre­cise – for all their robot­ic needs. Robots​.com, locat­ed in Mar­i­on, OH, is a cer­ti­fied inte­gra­tor for ABB, KUKA, Uni­ver­sal Robots, Motoman, and Fanuc robot­ics. If you have a need, we can ful­fill it.
