What is automation?

Custom CMM fixtures for quality lab using additive manufacturing.

The word automation is generally used to describe efforts that reduce human interaction from a process. For example, businesses may need to decide whether customer service should continue to enter orders manually or use EDI, whether to assemble components manually or integrate robotics into their process, whether to audit database transactions daily or deploy a business process to analyze database records automatically and in real-time. Each scenario may require a unique combination of disciplines, but from a high-level view, the main forms of automation seen in manufacturing today are related to hardware and software.

With enough visibility on demand, E. J. Basler is able to craft the most cost-effective and reliable processes for you, allowing our organizations to benefit and grow together. We are not afraid to jump in and take a creative approach which is exactly what sets us apart.

There are many precision-product companies out there, but we strongly believe that processes related to your products will continually improve from the first operation to the last when you work with us. It’s not just precision machine parts that we make but rather precise works of art that serve as the backbone of your industry and our countries.

How can automation help you?

Do you find yourself having the same problem with a part? Some dimension that’s continuously out of spec? A pesky burr that never seems to come off. We utilize automation through various processes to ensure your requirements are met.



Special in-line bore gauging for Hydromat work.

In precision machining, you have very specific and unique requirements. To help address your needs, we developed a special range of manufacturing systems and processes including but not limited to:

  • Light hand assembly (o-ring, threading mating parts, slip fits, etc.)
  • Light duty press fit (typically less than 2,000 lb force)
  • Laser marking
  • Special wash processes (ex: ultrasonic washing)
  • Coining
  • Crimping
  • Saw cutting (automated band saw)
  • O-ring detection systems

Got a tough problem? We would love to help you with it because we willing to get down and dirty to create a great solution together.
