That’s where Cross Company’s Automation solutions come in. Our full solutions take into account every part of a complex system to devise a comprehensive response to any problems you may be having in production. Whether it’s increasing throughput, creating greater efficiency, or implementing more redundancy to reduce downtime, we have the expertise and experience to help.

The Cross automation team has years of experience working in a variety of applications to develop solutions using robotic automation, pneumatics and electro-mechanical motion control. Take a look below to browse a list of the complete solutions from our automation group.

Comprehensive Solutions for Manufacturers

In today’s increasingly competitive marketplace, industrial automation plays a critical role in driving efficiency, productivity, and cost-effectiveness across industries. At Cross Automation, we’re at the forefront of providing modern, cutting-edge automation solutions designed to meet the needs of our customers, no matter the specific industry or sector.

Within automation, a full solution encompasses a wide range of technologies, industrial processes, and other systems. All with the goal of automating and optimizing tasks, throughput, and workflows. By implementing a Cross Automation solution into your existing manufacturing process, you have the capability to streamline operations, improve accuracy, reduce costs over time, and optimize overall performance.

Through leveraging technologies such as automated material handling, machine tending, IIoT, and many others, industrial operations can achieve a significant increase in efficiency, scalability, and competitiveness in their respective markets.

Whether you are measuring in process on the production floor or in the quality lab, sometimes an off-the-shelf product just doesn’t gather the data that you need. A custom measurement solution from Cross can help. We design easy to use, elegantly simple machines which are ergonomically correct and highly accurate.

Benefits of Cross Company's Automation Solutions

There are many benefits to implementing automation solutions in your industrial operation. Whether you’re looking for increased productivity, cost reduction, greater accuracy, enhanced safety, or looking to future-proof with greater scalability and flexibility, Cross has a solution for you.

Automation solutions are often able to eliminate manual or repetitive tasks (for instance, automated palletizing). By automating this process, operations are able to allocate resources more efficiently by freeing up workers who would otherwise be palletizing all day long to work on more business-critical tasks. They also streamline workflows, reduce labor costs overall, and minimize operational expenses through automation for resource-intensive tasks. Both of these benefits let your operation optimize resource allocation and save money in the long run. These solutions also remove humans from hazardous or physically straining tasks, which improves safety conditions and minimizes workplace-related injury.

Further, automation solutions offer your facility scalability and flexibility. This allows your operation to adapt to changing market demands and to scale as needed. Flexibility like this is a critical component in future-proofing your facility and setting yourself apart in the market.
