Custom Measurement Solutions

Custom Precision Measurement Solutions

Since 1958, our engineering team has been developing and implementing cutting edge solutions custom tailored for our customer’s specific needs.

Whatever your unique measurement application, we can create a solution. We’ve developed projects as complex as customized batching and filling systems, while also offering solutions for improving efficiency in simple processes such as manually measuring runout.

Cross Custom Measurement Solutions

We’re proud of the services we’ve provided. From fiber blending to table top vacuum chambers, we’ve worked with many manufacturers to provide the best automation and measurement solutions.

If your production process could benefit from industrial automation, we’d love to hear from you. Our team of dedicated engineers will work directly with your teams from concept to completion to ensure the highest quality and measurement accuracy.

Cross Automation solutions can work for you. If you’re facing disruptions in your processes, now is the time to make the switch to automation. Take a look at some of our work and see for yourself how automated measurement can make all the difference.

Cross Company Automation has developed an emulsion system that utilizes out batching technology to automate the emulsion process. The emulsifier is prepared and automatically dispensed into the other ingredient lines (tar, asphalt etc.) according to user defined mix percentages.

By automating your mixing, blending, or batching system, you can ensure your products are uniform across different machines, different shifts, and even different plants. We’ve designed hundreds of custom batching and blending systems across a range of industries. And we have the experience and expertise to build one for your operation, too.

Automated Batching System →

Our application engineers can custom-engineer bulk bag handling systems from simple weighing racks to advanced weighing systems capable of measuring the smallest amount of raw materials into your process. This increased accuracy and reliability can provide many tangible benefits to your operation.

Cross custom fixtures improve measurement efficiency by making measurement easier. This makes it faster for the operator to load and unload products, increasing overall operational efficiency. Our custom fixtures are also easy to load, which improves ergonomics for the operator and minimizes set-up time.

Custom Fixturing →

Force testing allows a manufacturer to gain a realistic representation of product performance based on a specific test. We have a broad range of equipment to work with, so we can fit most applications and most budgets. At Cross, we can measure parameters such as tension, compression, coefficient of friction, spring testing, and many others.

Custom Force Equipment →

When off-the-shelf scales can’t get the job done right, our engineers and measurement experts can design and create a custom solution that works with your application. We can also add peripherals like stack lights, scanners, printers, fixturing, and many other custom components. That way your scale can be exactly how you need it to be.

Custom Scales →

If you’re manually testing products internally, it’s likely that your operation could benefit from a custom test machine. Our engineering team is able to review your existing internal, ISO, or ASTM test procedures and work with you to devise a machine that can automate that testing process.

Custom Test Machines →

Sometimes achieving or measuring the torque in your process isn’t a straightforward process. However, custom torque measurement solutions from Cross can help. Our engineers can design custom solutions perfectly tailored to your application to increase throughput and accuracy while reducing downtime and the risk of injury.

Custom Torque Measurement Solutions →

By utilizing vision technology into your measurement and inspection processes, you can reduce your risk of wasted product and raw materials. This is due to custom vision technology allowing issues to be discovered considerably faster. In addition, your risk of warranty issues will be reduced due to 100% inspection of your product.

Custom Vision Measurement and Inspection →

The measurement experts and engineers at Cross Automation can design and build custom weight carts for your precise operational needs. Each cart is built to your specifications and can include features like custom height, ergonomic designs, dust covers, hand braking options, and many other customizable features.

Custom Weight Carts →

Fiber blending is an essential part of the early production process for textile manufacturers, both woven and non-woven. Whether you simply need to weigh one weigh pan or you need a fully automated blending system, the engineers at Cross are the trusted experts for fiber blending.

Fiber Blending →

When producing high volume products such as hard surface floor coverings, uniformity is key. When it comes to industries like flooring and consumer goods, reliable and consistent gloss and emboss is necessary. Cross can provide the automation to ensure that consistency.

Inline Gloss Measurement →

At Cross, we’ve developed a pin gauge classifier that makes use of a top-of-the-line laser scan micrometer partnered with custom-designed software applications. A set-up like this allows for accurate, fast, and simple checks of pin gauges. No matter what your process setup looks like, we can provide an automated solution.

Pin Gauge Classifier →

Checkweighing is a fairly common scale application. Essentially, it is a scale that is programmed to tell the operator if the piece(s) being measured falls within a specific target weight range. Scales can be programmed to show this both graphically or with stack lights.

Small Parts Kitting and Checkweighing →

The table top vacuum chamber is designed to vacuum test small containers for quality control. This solution is able to withstand frequent testing, lowers the chance of product malfunction, and increases overall efficiency for industrial operations requiring in-house testing.

Table Top Vacuum Chamber →

Unattended truck scale weighing kiosks can speed up throughput and increase efficiency. They can also help prevent fraud, all while providing 24/7 unattended operation. 

Unattended Truck Scale Weighing Kiosks →

Whether you’re weighing boxes of tiny bullets or many trucks weighing many tons, Our engineering department can help design a weight-based solution for you. Our team of engineers and application experts can design easy-to-use automation solutions for your complex measurement application.

Did you know… Cross Company is an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our ESOP started in 1979 and as of 2006, we are 100% employee-owned! Learn more about our ESOP and how that benefits both team members and our customers.
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 of paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company has grown significantly since our start in 1954. Over the years we've acquired 26 companies! Today, our five groups have expertise in everything from industrial automation to precision measurement, and industry knowledge going all the way back to 1939.
