ABCO offers several built-to-order products for a variety of manufacturing environments. Our product offerings include bag-in-box fillers, wire and cable laser markers, robotic machining cells, robotic case erectors, robotic laser markers, and machine tending robots. We designed these tried-and-true systems for performance and efficiency to high-quality standards and with premium materials. ABCO can provide consultation regarding specific manufacturing needs and recommend the best solution for a facility. As with our custom products, our built-to-order products come with the same customer service, documentation, and installation support.
ABCO has been a leader in bag-in-box filling for over 25 years, earning a solid reputation for building the best equipment available. By blending proven designs with technological innovations, ABCO has set the standard for this type of equipment. The willingness and ability to customize bag-in-box filling equipment that provides clients with a real competitive advantage sets ABCO apart from other suppliers. ABCO’s clients include some of the biggest names in food, beverage, and other industries.
Designed specifically for wire and cable manufacturers, ABCO’s LM Series laser marking solutions deliver clear crisp codes on a variety of high-performance materials. ABCO’s turnkey self-contained laser wire marking system is simple to install and easy to use—and readily available via ABCO’s quick ship program. We designed and built a completely safe system that is ready to use right out of the box. ABCO’s laser wire marking system is plug-and-play and requires minimal operator training, making wire and cable marking effortless.
SmartForce is a semi-automatic grinding, deburring, and polishing robotic cell that combines minimal operator involvement with robotic functions. ABCO’s turnkey system offers manufacturers a complete package that bundles ABCO’s unique design with high-end “off-the-shelf” components, such as a KUKA Robot, 3M™ Abrasives, PushCorp End-of-Arm Tool, Coolmate™ Cooling System, metal skid base, and part infeed table. SmartForce is pre-engineered and pre-built, allowing manufacturers to use the cell without delays—there is minimum installation for the initial setup. SmartForce is easy to use and requires nominal plant resources or operator training.
As increased competition drives the need for more efficient manufacturing processes, more and more companies are incorporating robotic technologies in end-of-line packaging systems. A robotic case erector cell can be tailored to meet the needs of most manufacturing applications. Robotic systems provide more flexibility to a packaging line and can accommodate products of varying sizes and configuration. Robotic systems expedite transitions by running various products on a single system.
Robotic laser marking systems can mark on virtually any material, including wood, acrylic, glass, leather, stone, metals, and coated metals. Laser marking provides automated marking utilizing serial numbers, text, barcodes, 2D machine-readable codes, symbols, and logos, making it an ideal marking solution for pharmaceutical, medical, and any application that requires small, precise marks. With a highly visible and permanent mark, keeping track of products, improving quality, and minimizing potential counterfeiting is easy.
Machine tending robot cells offer tremendous value when precision applications are required and shorter cycle times are a must. Using robots for machine tending applications benefits manufacturing in numerous ways. Managing a production process by incorporating robots reduces human error and increases speed and efficiency. Integrating machine tending robot cells allows for continuous production with repeatable accuracy. Robots, unlike manual machine tending, can provide continuous 24-hour manufacturing, resulting in higher yields and increased profits by cutting production time 2-4 seconds per cycle.
