Custom Engineered Systems Boost Productivity, Reduce Labor

Custom Engineered Systems

They enable customers to be price competitive with imported products, company says

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.--Maximizing the productive capacity of today's machining centers is the aim of a typical, integrated custom engineered system from Kurt Manufacturing. Designed to expand productivity while reducing labor content, Kurt's integrated custom engineered systems provide automated workholding, fixturing, part conveying, and gaging for customers in industries such as aerospace, automotive, and medical.

Kurt systems include high density clamping fixtures with integrated robot arms for automation. This allows for automated part loading, machining on all sides of parts, and unloading and stacking of finished machined parts. The custom engineered system also includes automated part gaging for quality and real time process control with complete part traceability. The systems can be designed to automate a single machining center or an entire cell of dozens of machining centers and support systems.

"The advantages of these custom engineered systems are far-reaching," reports Steve Kane, global sales and marketing manager for Kurt Industrial Products. "These systems are extremely productive, helping manufacturers forego off-shore sourcing options. They enable a company to be price-competitive with imported knock-off products while achieving an advantage in product quality and durability."

Kurt ( partners with customers on projects from start to finish, drawing on over 25 years of experience in designing and building these systems for numerous manufacturing applications. The company offers research, design, development, and build of fixtures, workholding, automation, and gaging, as well as data collection.
