Partnering with companies across the automotive industry, The Proving Factory takes innovative products and design ideas from small high-tech British companies and universities, and develops them for large-volume production for global vehicle manufacturers.
In addition to workbenches, Kanban and component storage systems, MiniTec's modular aluminium profile based machine building system includes thousands of components that combine for highly efficient machine frame solutions with control system and motion components for electrical, pneumatic and hydraulic automation.
It's Profile System is said to assemble/re-assemble faster than most competitor systems, thanks to a Powerlock fastener which requires just an Allen key and no pre-drilling of the profile. MiniTec can provide separate components for customer assembly or build to customer requirements in-house or on-site.
Redesign and reconfiguration of the cell can be made using MiniTec's free iCAD design software which is compatible with all common CAD packages and is also available for standalone design and development as an on-line tool with no prior CAD knowledge required.
