The Challenge – Machine Design
Client: Machine automation manufacturer
Objective: Design an automated assembly system
A leading manufacturer of machine automation contracted Sterling Engineering to design an automated system for the assembly of a medical injection device. This project arose during an ongoing partnership with the client as their engineering design support provider. The client was undergoing a period of peak design, and they required additional resources to complete the project within strict deadlines. The client did not have enough additional seats of licensed design software to provide potential temporary staff.
The Machine Design Solution
Sterling Engineering was already familiar with the client’s process and standards because we already had an ongoing relationship with them. This enabled Sterling Engineering to begin immediately on new designs based on the client’s concepts. The client would send us their concepts, and we designed and detailed the individual stations of the machine, which the client would, in turn, manufacture and integrate. The fully functioning machine was then installed, according to schedule, and production began on the end product.
