Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing is the industrial version of 3D printing.  This technique of adding successive layers of material to build a 3D object can be used to make parts in almost any shape or geometry.

  • CAD to path with off-line programming
  • Laser Mechanisms
  • Laser Depth measuring systems


Additive Manufacturing

Control Systems

All automation & robotics must have a control system to operate properly.  The control system allows automation equipment to follow various paths, operates sensors, provides control for all motion, and allows operators to control automation processes though a visual interface.  Control systems can also provide critical information about your manufacturing process.  MWES offers custom control systems, as well as control systems updates & retrofits

Motion Control Systems

Motion control systems (also know as servo control) are used in manufacturing to move items in a controlled fashion.  These systems can use pneumatic, hydraulic, or electromechanical technology.  MWES builds motion control systems that are flexible, efficient, and cost effective.

All of our control systems are integrated with the latest automation technology and best practices.

Material Removal

Midwest Engineered Systems Inc. specializes in robotic finishing solutions for large projects. Historically, material removal has been a manual and very labor intensive process. Now, robotic finishing systems can be custom engineered to make this application safe, consistent and economical.

  • Deburring
  • Sanding
  • Rough to Class A Finish
  • Part-to-tool/tool-to-part



Vision Inspection & Test

Vision systems display 2D or 3D maps of the manufacturing environment for optimized picking, placing, orientation control, etc.  This technology improves throughput and quality.  Vision systems are also used to verify parts for accuracy for quality control purposes.  We have built many vision systems to fulfill our customers process needs.

  • Random / structured bin picking
  • Conveyor tracking
  • Part identification
