Industrial Automation Solutions

As an automation system integrator, Cross’s complete solutions combine a mix of physical products or components, services, or technical expertise, into a unique offering for our customers. 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.

Automated Packaging and Material Handling

From material handling robots to robots for packaging, Cross can help automate dull, repetitive tasks so you can use your human labor on higher value activities.  Don’t see what you need to do here?  Get in touch!  We’re happy to talk about what we can do to automate your manual process.

Automated Machine Tending

Our automated machine tending solutions create a direct handshake between the machine and the robot, so they are perfectly synched to quickly and accurately load and/or unload the machine.  If you are looking to automate either press brake or CNC machine tending, see all that Cross can offer on the pages below.

Automated Testing and Quality

When carrying out quality checks or lifecycle testing, each test needs to be exactly the same as the one before, possibly thousands of times. Humans add variation to the process.  An automated testing solution from Cross improves repeatability and efficiency in the quality assurance process.

Automated Custom Measurement

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.  Don’t see what you need below?  Get in touch and we’ll help you solve your measurement challenge!

Automated Material Removal

At Cross Automation, we know that force control, larger surface areas and frequent media changes in material removal applications can be time consuming and labor intensive. All of these factors can be better controlled through the use of an automated solution. Did you know, As little as five minutes of downtime can take 30-40 minutes to recoup in production? We offer customized solutions for automated material removal such as material deburring, polishing after processing, and everything between. Work with our automation team to reduce the risk of downtime, and improve quality in your process.

Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet to paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
