Our Process for Automotive Solutions:

The team at GP Reeves has collected decades of experience solving some of the automotive industry’s biggest challenges. We’ve partnered with a plethora of OEMs, integrators, distributors, and end users to create custom solutions for applications such as robotic seating rail greasing, lubrication of axle components, and adhesion of sensors to components of autonomous vehicles.

    1. Analyze: Our experts work hard to diligently analyze the goals of each project and assess the needs of each component. The characteristics of each surface, material, environmental condition, and assembly part are carefully examined to make sure the most optimum solution is crafted.
    2. Design: Once a complete assessment of the project’s components has been conducted, our crew intricately designs each part of a dispensing system with unique capabilities, ensuring that it will maximize the potential of your production line.
    3. Assembly: After our team feels as though the design has exceeded our customer’s expectations, we manufacture custom and standard products in house, ensuring our system will effectively integrate with the customer’s current processes.
    4. Testing: GP Reeves replicates the eventual atmospheric conditions, materials, space, and any other factors to validate the process as best as possible.
    5. Continued Support: Even after we have verified feasibility and functionality, we also offer installation services and support for all our products. We are dedicated to your assembly line’s success for the long haul.

Case Study: Automotive Manufacturer Custom Nesting Integration

An automotive manufacturer approached GP Reeves after recognizing an excess of wasted material, labor time, and mess during the lubrication of window actuator components. They asked for a dispensing solution to increase simplicity and efficiency of their assembly process. Our engineers configured custom tooling that integrated into their existing automated system. The custom lubrication system accommodated the company’s unique grease material while accurately monitoring the dispense volume. By utilizing the unique dispensing capabilities of GP Reeves, the automotive manufacturer improved efficiency, effectiveness, and reliability of their assembly line and process. Our cutting-edge technologies have since been used in numerous other assembly processes for the same company, and we look forward to finding solutions and continuing to fuel progress in the automotive industry.
