At Master Automation & Robotics, we specialise in designing and manufacturing of assembly line production systems and testing lines. We have a strong experience in handling diverse set of components and assemblies ranging from 5 kg to 32 tons. Superior engineering technology and customer satisfaction have been at the heart of our all solutions and products. We deliver solutions of the highest international standards at economical prices.
We are proud of our strong customer references in automotive, white goods, farm & construction equipment, and general & heavy engineering. Our customer base in industries such as food & pharma, railways & metros and defence is growing very fast.
Our expertise covers automation solutions for different types of assembly applications. An automated assembly line uses a wide array of standardised solutions, including robotic assembly, and ensures assembly line balancing. Our decades of experience in assembly automation allows us to find innovative solutions to address long standing bottlenecks and production challenges.
The design of our typical assembly line automation system is customised to the production strategy and number of product variants. Irrespective of the complexity the assembly line is designed to be highly efficient, flexible and cost effective.
Assembly Line Production
Automated assembly ensures high throughput, efficiency and quality. Our assembly line is designed and built to meet the high volume, precision and quality requirement.
We use assembly conveyor systems such as roller conveyors, chain conveyors, slat conveyors, overhead conveyors, and belt conveyors. The assembly process is optimised through the use of intelligent assembly automation systems such as gantry robot, electrified monorail system (EMS), and automated guided vehicles (AGVs).
Assembly Line Balancing
The most important business challenge for manufacturing companies is how to increase the flexibility and speed of production while keeping costs down. One of the key technologies is assembly line balancing. Balancing an assembly line is a procedure in which tasks are distributed evenly to each assembly station in the line so that each workstation has the same amount of the work.
It is very important to balance the workload of the operator at every station and to reduce the operator idle This means increasing the station utilisation to the maximum. A well-balanced workstation reduces waste, increase utilisation and throughput, while reducing faults and rejections. It also allows the company to reduce the price of their product through the decrease in production cost of the unit.
Robotic assembly involves the use of robots for assembly. The use of robotic assembly automation is growing, especially in automotive assembly plants. The assembly robots are ideal for tasks requiring high speed and accuracy such as applying sealing, machine loading and palletising. They play an important role in minimising the cycle time and line balancing. They are also extremely versatile and can handle small and big parts with intricate geometries.

Automation of the assembly process guarantees not only the productivity, but also the product quality. It is designed and built to meet the high volume, precision and quality requirement.
- Full integration with line tooling and testing equipment
- Customised, modular and flexible solutions based on the application
- Advanced automation technology using mechatronics
- Ergonomic & operator friendly design
- Safety interlocks and compliance to safety standards
- Production planning and control through central PC / SCADA / IoT
Testing an assembled unit at the end of the assembly is a critical step in the production process. Defective assemblies and those not matching the required specifications must be separated from the functional units shipped to the customer. End of-line testing assesses not only the quality of the product, but also the stability and yield of the production process. Reliable detection of non-functional units is the primary objective of the test, but reducing the rejection rate and maximising the output is the ultimate goal.
