Automation allows systems, even buildings, to work smarter and more efficiently. Automation is more than smart technology. It relies on smart expertise. American Industrial Group’s industrial automation experts identify tools, including robots, PLCs, and instrumentation, that can effectively communicate. The result? Manufacturing and material handling systems designed to:
- Reduce costs
- Minimize variation
- Maximize flexibility
- Reduce waste
- Improve safety
- Improve throughput
- Minimize downtime
AIG team members have designed and implemented automation in a wide range of environments:
- Insulation manufacturing
- Agricultural equipment manufacturing
- Law enforcement
- Agricultural research
Mechanically integrating equipment into a working system requires supports and connections.
Quite often those parts are not available right off the shelf. Instead, AIG designs the equipment supports, personnel access points, equipment pads and the mix of parts and pieces that connect one piece of equipment to another. Our AutoCAD designers generate the shop drawings and ultimately sign off on high-quality parts from the skilled fabrication shops we use.
Our resources also provide repair services for custom fabricated parts.
In addition to fabricating parts and pieces to physically integrate equipment into a functional system, AIG will design and oversee fabrication of custom pieces such as tanks, baghouses and building framing.
We have provided fabrication services a range of systems, including:
- Insulation packaging systems
- Chicken fat CIP system
- Salt processing plants
From concept to start-up, AIG transforms design into reality. We do it safely, within budget, on schedule, and we do it right.
Jobsite safety is priority. All AIG project managers hold OSHA 30 certification. Safety coordinators monitor and report safety issues and conduct training for our crews.
The AIG team meets customer needs at any point in the installation process, from pouring foundations and erecting steel to receiving equipment and putting it in place. We provide skilled resources with proven track records for performance and jobsite safety. AIG brings all trades needed: millwrights for mechanical installation, electricians for electrical services, programmers for PLC and automation – whatever the job requires.
AIG project managers work closely with plant managers to ensure manufacturing operations effectively continue during construction and installation. We stay on the job through commissioning so our customers know the system is working as designed.
In addition to industrial applications, AIG team members have been involved in the installation of a new 3,800-pipe pipe organ; equipment and facilities in a county jail; aquatic center and water park; and build-out of a preschool and day care facility.
AIG can support our customers’ success beyond delivery of the last drawing, checking the final item on a punch list, or loading the first package into a rail car. The AIG team provides front-end analysis, troubleshooting, training and ongoing support.
