Oil & Gas
Safety and durability are everything in the oil and gas industry. When considering equipment for this environment, it’s important to make sure they can stand up to harsh environments, harsh applications and do so for long periods of time with minimal repair.
Manual applications to massive and heavy components can be imprecise, wasteful, and dangerous.
Adding automated solutions allows you to better utilize your employees and ensure quality control every time, throughout your entire process. Automation solutions can reinforce health and safety standards, protecting your employees and reducing errors.
For over 27 years, Arnold Machine has been designing and creating automated solutions in the appliance industry. We have worked with major appliance manufacturers to create custom equipment, utilizing fully automated to partially automated solutions. From robotic assembly 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 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.
A few examples of projects we have completed for companies in the oil and gas industry:
- ID Adhesive Coating Systems for Downhole stator pipes and progressive cavity pumps (Single Coat and Primer and Top Coat 2 Coat Systems)
- Automated OD Coating of Mandrel Shafts (Single Coat and Primer and Top Coat 2 Coat Systems)
- Automated adhesive application systems for seals, valves, etc., prior to a rubber to metal bonding application
- Robotic applied adhesive application systems for Blow Off Preventer Components including preheating and drying ovens
- Curing Tanks for Stator and Progressive Cavity Pump Molds
- Lance and High Flow washing systems to remove blast media
Some of the machines and systems we have built for leading manufacturers include:
Automated 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.
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. Automotive stamping and machining is a common application for our parts washers.
Clients typically approach Arnold Machine for a material handling system when they need to join multiple stations within their process together to transfer a piece of equipment from one station to the next. Our material handling systems are ideal for part movement, pick and place, walking beam transfer and robot transfer.
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 (like 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.
