The aerospace industry, which is known for its complex and state-of-the-art systems, still relies heavily on manual labor.
But aerospace, which has seen unprecedented growth over the last few years, is facing huge backlogs in production and needs solutions to speed up production. Many of the leading companies are turning to automation to solve this problem.
Our team has a long history of crafting quality machines and systems for leading spacecraft and aviation companies.
From commercial to military, Arnold Machine has maintained the ability to be innovative and competitive in high quality, automated machines and systems.
Although aerospace manufacturing is specialized and complex, smart manufacturing is simplifying things and automation is transforming the aerospace industry at exponential rates. With labor shortages and the need to meet quality demands and strict standards, automating processes has become a time and cost-effective solution.

For over 27 years, Arnold Machine has been designing and creating automated solutions. From robotic assembly systems to spray and adhesive systems, to parts washers, we have been at the cutting-edge of technology while adhering to high-quality standards and building long-lasting machines. As a full-service facility, we maintain quality control from the raw materials to the finished system.
Arnold Machine is a member of the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork® and a FANUC America Authorized System Integrator. We utilize 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD), simulation software, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software, electrical design software and control programming software to create finished designs. Our staff consists of expert engineers, manufacturers, programmers, electricians and machine tradesmen. We can build and customize virtually any type of automated equipment to meet specific needs.
Some of the machines and systems we have built for leading manufacturers include:
Automated and Robotic Assembly Systems
Our team designs machines specifically for repeatability and process control. All our systems are designed to limit component wear and adjustability so that over time, a machine can be adjusted to produce within its original parameters. With robotic integrations and conveyors, we can automate the entire process or bring it down to a one- or two-person operation depending on your needs and budget.
Automated and Robotic Spray and Adhesive Applications
Our spray systems can be automated for temperature control, rotation speed, spray time, fan and atomization pressure as well as gun positioning.
Robotic spray systems take automation a step further by utilizing robots to manipulate spray guns to perform specific spray patterns. They can be customized with various automation and fixture levels and work with water or solvent-based materials.
In 2020, Arnold Machine acquired Findlay Machine and Tool (FMT) parts washer line along with their engineers, techs and sales team. Combining their 30 years of parts washer experience with our 27 years of automation experience was a great match. In that short time, we have created fully custom and fully automated parts washing systems for a variety of applications.
Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs)
Our team can fully integrate AMR’s into automotive facilities for safer, smarter and more reliable transportation of components and parts through your facility. Designed to navigate using intelligent mapping, these flexible robots can be updated and rerouted with simple software changes instead of expensive facility upgrades (unlike automated guided vehicles).
We’re able to help you in every step of the process.
Our project managers and engineers are available to answer every question. We will build a system to your exact specifications or help you discover the process best suited to your needs.
