Test Benches

AMET designs and provides equipment, automation systems and test benches for physical testing and characterization of mechanical and mechatronic products. Among our testing products, there are vehicle closures fatigue test benches, designed for side doors, trunk lids, hoods, tailgates, for passenger cars and commercial vehicles, usable in climate room over a wide temperature and humidity range, according to OEMs requirements.

AMET also designs and realizes end of line test benches, on-board devices and quality rigs, collaborative robot’s applications, fluidic tests equipment (e.g. Gasoline Working Capacity GWC) and custom solutions according to specific requirements.

Reliability, low maintenance and ease of use (thanks to our control software, entirely developed by AMET) are the strengths that our customers recognize . We use the best automation technologies to perform millions of cycles at extreme temperatures and humidity and to always offer our customers the best.

Revamping Systems

Revamping is a restructuring operation of a machine that allows its reuse, remaining in line with the optimization of costs and available resources.

An efficient and modern machinery is the fundamental requirement to optimize production and increase the performance of a machine.

A Revamping intervention replaces the technological heart of a machine, updating it with cutting-edge technologies and modern solutions, maximizing efficiency and quality, while maintaining the starting structure.

AMET has extensive experience in “revamping” projects through electronics updates, improvements to mechanical components, software development, with the aim of reusing machines and therefore extending their useful life.

With targeted replacement of PLC, obsolete drives, remaking of electrical panels, cables and raceways on the machine, we increase our customers’ production without them having to change their systems.

Advantages of Revamping

Productivity increase

Increase in plant performance

Quality improvement

Improvement of production flexibility

Cost reduction

Cost savings compared to design from scratch

Testing & Automation

Systems automation

Software automation industry 4.0

AMET leads the industry towards the complete automation of the machines, thanks to the right compromise between mechanics and software, with a view to optimizing production times and costs.

Thanks to AMET‘s skills, the best cutting-edge technologies and solutions are offered to the customer, accompanying him from the early design stages to construction and final testing.

Through our team of internal developers it is possible to provide support on PLC programming or software on industrial computers, HMI, Robotics, Motion control, Supervision, Interconnection / Integration of machines and Mechatronics in general.

PLC

The PLC is the virtual brain of the machine, where the logic of the operation of each individual electrical and mechanical part is programmed.

HMI

The human machine interface is one of the most important components of the machine and unfortunately most underestimated by the manufacturers. AMET offers intuitive and simple to use interfaces in the complex world of commands, actions, diagnostics, choice of graphs to be displayed, formats and associated technologies.

Robotics

The advantages introduced by the use of a robotic arm on the production processes are manifold but depend largely on the quality of the control software, on which in turn the optimization of the investment depends.

Motion

We use all the movement technologies (asynchronous, brushless, linear motors) to provide the customer with the best solution even with extreme temperature and humidity conditions.

Supervisions

Machine monitoring is a fundamental activity in production and is responsible for its efficiency and for maximizing the cost / benefit ratio. AMET software can be perfectly integrated with the management systems used by customers, even by customizing them from time to time.

Mechatronics

Mechatronics, the discipline on which AMET is founded, is the core of our skills. The extensive use of mechatronic technologies of different nature means that AMET offers its customers innovative solutions with an increasingly high technological content.

Automated Warehouses & Parts inspection

Multistation assembly with integrated warehouse

Thanks to collaborative robots, smart grippers and artificial vision, automation becomes intelligent and able to manage various types of product without expensive and demanding mechanical configurations. By integrating the automatic multi-column warehouse with automation, the desired autonomies can be achieved simply by sizing the warehouse in the appropriate manner. The use of Cobots allows to avoid most of the fixed protections on the ground and by integrating an automatic warehouse it is possible to save up to 80% of the surface.

Assembly on vertical warehouse

By using the vertical magazine tray directly as a working volume, it is possible to manage various applications within the same automation, changing the type of tooling simultaneously with the tray.

Automatic handling for small parts inspection

Many industrial applications require inspections which are relatively simple but temporally expensive and with no added value. In order to integrate these operations at low costs, collaborative robotics becomes an obligation.
Modern collaborative robots can reach remarkable repeatability in the order of hundredths of a millimeter, guaranteeing extremely high quality standards that cannot otherwise be reached by the operator.
For small parts, blister management allows high autonomies in small spaces with handling managed directly by the cobot without additional hardware costs and therefore maintaining high flexibility.
