About Sci-Mech Technical Services
Since 1994, Sci-Mech Technical Services has been an industry leader in the design and manufacturing of assembly lines and function testers.
Design • Build • Install • Service
We use leading-edge technology in developing custom manufacturing equipment and we back it with the best service and support. We are ISO 9001:2015 compliant.
Automating Repetitive Tasks
Today’s industry demands high performance with low cost, and to be competitive you must be efficient. Automating repetitive tasks is one of the best ways to increase efficiency on the production line.
Helping Industries Get Started in Automation
Simple Starts in Automating Processes
We help industries get started in automation with minimal risk. We offer inexpensive solutions to start your automation journey such as assembly fixtures and jigs to help improve production-line efficiency
Advanced Automation Integration
Our team also has decades of experience building advanced automated manufacturing equipment that demands high throughput. Our products increase speed and quality by reducing cycle times and integrating automated quality control testing during the product-build process.
IIot & Industry 4.0
Industry 4.0 - The New Normal
We are in the midst of a significant transformation in the way we produce products with the digitization of manufacturing. When computers were first introduced in Industry 3.0 they were disruptive because of their addition to the manufacturing process.
Industry 4.0 is the next step in the evolution of computing as the networking of computers, along with their connections to machines, increases with the growth of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things). Ultimately, this allows computers to make decisions without human involvement.
As the data available grows, factories will become more efficient and safer, and as the networks grow and more machines come online, the true power of Industry 4.0 will be realized.
What We Can Do For You
We offer full mechanical design services utilizing SolidWorks, from standalone test fixtures to full assembly lines. Our mechanical design team leverages decades of experience to create effective, reliable solutions to the most challenging design requirements. Our full machine shop and in-house 3D printing allow us to rapidly develop prototype components to test and evaluate tooling designs.
We offer complete in-house electrical designs and control panel builds. Design and assembly are all done in-house, ensuring the highest quality standards. Electrical schematics are drawn using AutoCAD Electrical and are compliant with the Canadian or National Electrical Code in formats compliant with NFPA 79 – Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery. We are capable of delivering CE-compliant machinery.
We are experienced in a wide variety of industrial control languages, PLC programming, HMI development, and SCADA services. We integrate servo drives, vision systems, robots, and other specialized hardware and controllers using both PCs and PLCs (Allen-Bradley, Siemens, Omron). We can pair the flexibility and processing capabilities of PCs running LabVIEW software with the reliability and familiarity of PLCs to provide integrated systems of unique capability. SCI-Mech is a National Instruments Alliance Partner with on-staff certified LabVIEW developers.
We are experienced in implementing an array of test methods using various data acquisition sensors and techniques. Our custom solutions include accelerometers for sound and vibration analysis, vision systems, load cells for force measurement, torque sensors, displacement transducers and more. We can combine test operation, data acquisition, and data analysis into complete integrated systems addressing your testing requirements. We developed test systems running as parts of assembly lines, standalone function testers and lab-test equipment for component durability.
With the ever-increasing demand for higher production numbers there exists opportunities for process improvements to save time and effort. SCI-Mech partners with their clients to improve or develop a required assembly process. We can analyze your individual processes and operate as a team with your engineers to apply the correct level of automation providing the best solution for your needs.
Machine Retrofit & Upgrade
We offer the automation expertise required to upgrade outdated machines to perform more efficiently. We also provide services for machine retrofits which include tooling re-design, modernization of equipment, controls programming, cycle time improvements, improving efficiency, and engineering optimization including process and material flow — addressing challenges while minimizing capital outlay
