Marian and AccuPlace Partnership
Marian is the leading Value Added Reseller for AccuPlace Automation Machines, selling over 100 machines in 10 years.
In addition to manufacturing precision component parts, we extend that solution with an automated, precision placement of that part through our partnership with AccuPlace. The parts that we manufacture have gotten smaller and smaller. Designing a small complex part is one thing, but considering how to place them becomes an even larger challenge. Our partnership with AccuPlace is a natural fit, offering our customers a complete solution.
The video below shows the APAC Industrial Robotic System placing foam washers, die-cut by Marian, around plastic-molded fasteners. For this application, Marian provided foam washers, precisely kiss-cut on a roll, designed to fit and function seamlessly with the APAC system.
Marian engineers have developed advanced techniques in precision slitting that sets them apart from other material converters. Marian provided slit rolls of foam tape that met the length and width tolerances. The material was free of splices, wrinkles and debris. Additionally, Marian created packaging (reels) for the foam tape rolls that made the material easier to handle in the customer’s automated process. Each roll/reel is individually bagged and labeled to ensure cleanliness. Read more…
Marian offered to supply the customer with a part that could be placed accurately and automatically using the AccuPlace system. Though the die-cut part was extremely small (.256” x .157”), Marian was able to cut them precisely. In fact, Marian developed a specialized process to ensure that the small center slugs were removed uniformly. Read more…
