An Industrial Robot is an Automatically Controlled, Reprogrammable, and Multi-purpose Manipulator Programmable in three or more axes.
Pointer Fixing Robot
The Pointer is the first visible part in any Cluster and so there can be no defects and so precision in fixing into the cluster is highly expected by any manufacturer. Typically, pointer fixing is done either manually or with servo based fixing system which Micrologic designs and develops in-house.
Micrologic developed a unique, simple and highly flexible System for fixing pointers into dials using a Robot. We believe robotic pointer fixing is the new technology to replace servo based fixing and manual system which have very high cycle time of the order of 30 to 40 seconds and high error rate. The robotic pointer fixing can eliminate all the drawbacks in the other 2 systems.
Robot Based Selective Soldering
Robot Based Selective soldering is the process of selectively soldering components to printed circuit boards and molded modules that could be damaged by the heat of a reflow oven in a traditional surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly process. This usually follows an SMT oven reflow process; parts to be selectively soldered are usually surrounded by parts that have been previously soldered in a surface-mount reflow process, and the selective-solder process must be sufficiently precise to avoid damaging them.
Screw Fixing Robot
In Robot Screw Fixing, the Part is Automatically Introduced to the System; the Machine Recognizes the Part and Self-Initiates the Assembly Cycle.
Robot Screwdrivers are some of the most Popular Torque Screwdrivers available. These can be found in Light Assembly and high volume Manufacturing Environments. Rather than Manual Torque Screwdrivers, Electric screwdrivers help Increase Productivity by providing the Operator with Faster means of Assembly/Disassembly of the Product.
A Robotic System, provides easy, Reliable Operation with excellent Repeatability. A wide variety of Liquid Applicators meet speed and pressure requirements for Cold Glue Applications.

Automated Dispensing Systems provide consistent, High-Quality Output of Fluids, Cutting Costs and Reducing labour time for rejects and rework. The Actual saved costs depend on the Rework Time or, more likely, the Manufactured Cost of the Rejected Part that will be Discarded. Automated Dispensing Systems provide Repeatable and Reliable Deposit Sizes—even with different Operators.

Vision System is the technology and methods used to provide imaging-based automatic inspection and analysis for such applications as automatic inspection, process control, and robot guidance in industry. At Micrologic enabling products to be made at higher speed, without defects and at lower cost. For quality control and compliance, our machine vision systems provide consistent repeatability, superior accuracy, and minimal set-up time.
The use of machine vision to provide quality inspection within our systems are:
• Gauging or measurement: Dimensions
• Defect Detection
• Tolerance Monitoring
• Serial Number
• Presence of Components
• Pattern matching
• Blob analysis or edge detection
• Optical character recognition (OCR) & Bar code decoding
• Surface Inspection
• Color analysis
Leak testing is a test method aimed to guarantee the tightness of the components under test.
The most common leak test methods are able to determine the value of the leak(Typically measured in cc/min or mbar/sec) by using:
• Pressure decay (with or without reference volume)
• Flow inspection (for big volumes)
• Tracer gas inspection (high performances)
The part under test is tightened and pressurized or subjected to a vacuum and if it has a leak, the pressure inside the component will change. The pressure variation per time unit between the reference volume and the volume under test is measured by a differential pressure transducer.
In Micrologic, Leak testing is a process used to detect manufacturing defects which helps verify the integrity of products and improve consumer safety.
Traceability is the ability to recreate or “Trace” the Manufacturing Steps, Processes or location of part before it become a complete assembly.
• Provide real-time visibility of line level output & Station Productivity
• Verification of proper installation, Pass /fail Testing
• Facility-wide visibility of production output & efficiency
• Tracing Packaged Product
Traceability function are to identify products affected by the defect after customer delivery to minimize recall costs. This works to minimize the number of products that must be recalled when a manufacturing flaw is found by identifying only the specific serial numbers that were built with the faulty component or material or by the faulty process.
Parts traceability information technology solutions eliminate recalls in the first place By providing real-time reports on the machines, components, stations, shifts and operators involved in the defective product and processes before the product is shipped.
Ability to assess the impact of change
Traceability allows the impact (cost, schedule, technical) of changes to be assessed before work begins.
Ability to track progress
Traceability supports project tracking by assuring that requirements are implemented. For example, by verifying that a design Artifact and test exists for each requirement.
End of Line Testing
End of line testing is required to confirm that your products meets all quality requirements.
1. Pointers calibration (odometer, speedometer, fuel gauge)
2. LCD Display and Telltale Inspection (segments, symbols check, color check, back-light)
3. Communication Parameter (CAN/LIN, KLINE/RS232, UART)
4. Current Measurement
5. Push Button Reset Verification
A fastener is a hardware device that mechanically joins or affixes two or more objects together. Fasteners can also be used to close a container such as a bag, a box, or an envelope; or they may involve keeping together the sides of an opening of flexible material, attaching a lid to a container, etc. There are also special-purpose closing devices. Fasteners used in these manners are often temporary, in that they may be fastened and unfastened repeatedly.
Types of Fastening:
1. Manual Fastening
2. Automatic Fastening
Direct part marks are typically 2D Data Matrix symbols permanently marked by methods such as dot peen or laser/chemical etch onto substrates including metal, plastic, rubber or glass. These marking methods often result in low contrast visibility of the symbol or inconsistent imprints that can be challenging to decode through traditional imaging technology.
In addition to a suite of products specifically engineered to read directly marked symbols on a variety of substrates, also offers a full service applications lab staffed by application engineers who know and understand PM.
Part marking can be used to optimize line performance, identify defects, increase first-pass yields and as a result, reduce the costs of Manufacturing.

What do you need to feed ?
Screws, nuts, small parts on a reel, parts for pressurization…
We find a process reliable feeding system that is made for your process.
Part feeding is the commonly used term that describes the transfer of parts from bulk to allow operations to be carried out on individual components. Part feeding in the automation industry has evolved to include a number of potential technologies. This choice can be a critical step in a successful automation system.
A frequent requirement in the assembly process is pressing applications, which require critical press force or distance monitoring to assure product quality.
We proposed the concept for Press force monitoring to avoid improperly assembled or damaged parts. Monitoring of assembling and press inserting processes in series production with statistical quality control, in fully automated production lines, as well as at manual workplaces.
Press force monitoring played a key role by Ensuring costly parts weren’t damaged during assembly. Force and displacement transducers monitored presses Throughout the stroke and graphically displayed the resulting Curves while verifying correct tolerance.

Data acquisition is the process of sampling signals that measure real world physical conditions and converting the resulting samples into digital numeric values that can be manipulated by a computer. Data acquisition systems typically convert analog waveforms into digital values for processing. The components of data acquisition systems include:
• Sensors that convert physical parameters to electrical signals.
• Signal conditioning circuitry to convert sensor Signals into a form that can be converted to digital values.
Analog-to-digital converters, which convert conditioned sensor signals to digital values. Data acquisition applications are controlled by software programs developed using various general purpose programming languages Called LabVIEW.
Material Handling is the field concerned with solving the pragmatic Problems involving the movement, storage in a manufacturing plant or Warehouse, control and protection of materials, goods and products Throughout the processes of cleaning, preparation, manufacturing, Distribution, consumption and disposal of all related materials,Goods and their packaging.
The material handling system (MHS) is a fundamental part of a Flexible manufacturing system since it interconnects the different processes supplying and taking out raw material, work pieces, sub- products, parts and final products. Material handling system is to improve customer service, reduce inventory, shorten delivery time, and lower overall handling costs in manufacturing, distribution and transportation.
Used for movement of materials, products and loads throughout a manufacturing or distribution facility, conveyors are horizontal, inclined or vertical devices. Product transport is powered by gravity or by hydraulic or electric power.
Assembly: Moving products through production processes
Staging: Accumulating and holding items for further processing or packaging
Process flow: Conveyors can be used as a part of an assembly or manufacturing process
