Midwest Engineered Systems Inc. (MWES), an innovative provider of premier custom machines and integrated systems will be featured in the Kuka Robotics Corp. exhibit during IMTS 2016 (International Manufacturing Technology Show).

Midwest Engineered Systems will be displaying an additive manufacturing system using Kuka robots during IMTS 2016. This system will demonstrate how manufactures can optimize prototype part manufacturing and/or low volume part manufacturing with fast speeds, high efficiency, and lower costs than conventional methods. The cell is able to utilize many types of metals but also specializes in exotic metals that are typically used in the aerospace industry.

Midwest Engineered System’s Additive Manufacturing Demonstration Highlights:

  • Five to 10 times the speed of powdered metal

  • One twentieth the cost of powdered metal

  • Dynamic material composition (start with high-strength metal and finish with hard, wear-resistant metal)

  • Flexible additive manufacturing

  • Laser hybrid

  • Prototype manufacturing

  • Low volume manufacturing

  • Exotic metals

  • Customizable production solution

  • CAD-to-path (CAD/CAM) offline programming

  • Metal 3D printing

  • Time and material saver in comparison to conventional prototyping

Midwest Engineered Systems Inc. is committed to providing simple solutions to complex automation problems. Our engineering staff has technical expertise that includes a diverse knowledge base, building thousands of custom automation systems over the last 25 years.  This knowledge and expertise, in conjunction with a strong partnership with KUKA Robotics, gives Midwest Engineered Systems the ability to provide complex engineering solutions to the manufacturing industry.
