2019 Year in Review

2019 Year in Review

Thank you, again, to all of our new and returning customers that helped make 2019 such a successful year. Below is a short summary of 2019 from each of our departments:

Automation Group

In 2019, the automotive, medical, and small appliance sectors were strong and kept us extremely busy. Robot integration led the way with many of our systems utilizing multiple six-axis robots working together to assemble and test components.

In 2020, we’re excited to build upon some of the new partnerships we’ve formed as well as strengthening our existing partnerships.

Plastics Machinery Group

If you are looking for an experienced custom machine builder with over 30 years of experience in the automation industry, please contact our sales team.

2019 saw the release of our Atlas line of vertical clamp molding machines. The 30 ton Atlas was officially introduced in early fall. Several machines were sold by year end and quote activity looks very strong heading into 2020. Also, design has begun on the next Atlas line in the series, a 60 ton hybrid model. The 60 ton Atlas will feature energy saving technologies to help keep operating costs to a minimum. The PMG-60 is planned for introduction in late spring of 2020.

If you have a rebuild application, a controls retrofit/upgrade application, or looking for a custom solution for your mold machine requirements, please contact Rich Taube.

Mold Design & Build Group

Mold sales for 2019 were steady. Mold orders from customers in the appliance, lighting and wire harness industries were especially strong in 2019. Indicators for 2020 mold sales continue to point to strong activity from these industries. 2020 also looks to see increased mold building activity in certain sectors of the battery industry.

Please contact Mark Garrison with any mold applications we can help you with.

Custom Machining

In 2019, we continued to expand coverage in the fixture and gage, automation and specialty machine markets. With machine to print capabilities covering both large and small details, QSI Custom Machining added new customers across multiple industry segments and are positioned for continued growth in 2020. If you have a large format machining application, please contact Mike McCoy at Custom Machining.

2020 at a glance!

All of our groups see another strong year in 2020. Capital spending and investments in assembly technology is on the rise so we hope to capitalize on that with our newly formed and existing partnerships throughout all the groups here at QSI.
