Our Solutions

Custom Automation

Our custom automation solutions are designed to save you time and money, with the repeatability and traceability you need.

Robotics

Robotics are an economical way to update your assembly and machining processes. This means increased productivity, capital, and labor quality. Farris can integrate a robotic cell into your existing line or machining center.

Custom Test Stands

Verification. Repeatability. Quality. We know you want your product to be at it's best when you ship it. Whatever your specs are, we can build a test stand to help you meet them.

Check out our work below!

Robotic Assembly

This machine incorporates a dial table with multiple stations that orient parts, takes measurements with a vision camera, and tests the final assembly for functionality.

Ball Bearing Insertion

This​ system feeds 90 million ball bearings a year into plastic-injected molded parts to deliver a finished part every three seconds.

  • Vision Cameras

  • Servo Motors

  • Conveyors

  • Specialized Sorting System

Rear Hatch Assist

  • Scans vehicle to determine model.

  • Telescoping arm reaches in to lift hatch without damaging paint.

  • Area scanners protect operators.

Gearbox Tester

This machine allows each gearbox to be tested under real-world loads and end user requirements.

A drive motor acts as the engine while the two load motors act as the drive wheels.

A laser is used to detect access vibration that will be caused  improper assembly.

Robotic Sorting

Up to four layers of randomly placed parts are picked up, oriented, and stacked in groups of five.​

 

With ten million parts stacked per year, this machine reduced packaging and shipping costs for the end user.

Voltage and Leak Testing

This robotic cell uses a vision camera to find the randomly placed batteries on the conveyor. The rotary dial performs a quick voltage and leakage test before the robot picks it back up and places it in a tray.

Bolt Fastening

This machine works in tandem with our Stud Automation Machine, decreasing cycle time, eliminating ergonomic concerns, and increasing quality.​

  • Engine is lifted to the 8 DC nutrunners

  • Bolts are tightened simultaneously to create a properly sealed joint.

Stud Automation

Automation of this engine line reduced labor, eliminated ergonomic concerns, and saved 12.5 seconds per cycle.

  • Engine travels to machine station and is lifted to align with driver spindles

  • A laser sensor is used to verify alignment

  • Auto cycle begins, driving in eight studs simultaneously

  • Engine is lowered, while feeders are reloading
