Methods Machine Tools Expands Automation Footprint In North Carolina

The center, slated to open this spring, is staffed by systems integration engineers and will have a full range of equipment and capabilities from customer consultation to building cells and performing run-offs.

To meet the aggressively growing demand for automation and robotics in manufacturing, Methods Machine Tools Inc., a leading supplier of innovative precision machine tools, 3-D printing technology, automation and accessories, is expanding its automation capabilities, launching a new automation and integration center in its Charlotte, North Carolina, facility. The center, slated to open this spring, is staffed by systems integration engineers and will have a full range of equipment and capabilities from customer consultation to building cells and performing run-offs.

The 10,000-square-foot center will expand Methods’ existing automation program and provide innovative, state-of-the-art systems for customers throughout the U.S.

Automation is not a new concept at Methods. With existing automation centers in the company’s Sudbury, Massachusetts, headquarters and in Wixom, Michigan, Methods says it has been committed to automation for years, applying leading-edge technology in a wide range of machine tool and robotic solutions from small automated centers to large, complex multi-function machining cells.

“Manufacturers are increasingly realizing that incorporating automation and robotics are key to their productivity, profitability and future,” said Bryon Deysher, president and CEO of Methods Machine Tools Inc. “Our new automation and integration center will provide expanded capability for all projects spanning the U.S. and enhance the value of our customer experience at every level. I envision the future need for expanding this model in other regions of the U.S. as well.”

Methods Automation, utilizing robotics and a full range of advanced machine tools via Productivity Partners FANUC, YASDA, Nakamura-Tome, KIWA and FEELER, designs, integrates and builds innovative, flexible automation solutions for customers throughout North America. Methods has 40 automation engineers nationwide, including design engineers, control engineers, systems integration engineers and field service/ installation engineers. In addition, Methods technology centers are strategically located across the U.S. in Boston; Charlotte, North Carolina; Detroit; Chicago; Phoenix; San Francisco; and Los Angeles. Mike Kierce, systems integration manager, will be managing the new Charlotte automation center.
