A local robotics start up company was developing a sophisticated robot for use in a variety of Homeland Security applications. They had a solid mobile platform (base) to support the arm, but they needed to quickly create and debug the arm. In this case, the arm is everything from the black plate mounted to the base and up.

To simplify the process of bringing this idea to life, they were looking for a partner that had all the capabilities required to fabricate a wide variety components from a wide variety of materials. Excell Solutions was able to provide that assistance. We made all of the fabricated components used in this arm. Components included: Heavy gage water jetted and bent aluminum plates, weather tight control boxes, and many machined components from aluminum, steel and Delrin.

Because this arm had 8 joints, many very precise fits and locations were required. In addition, weight was a factor. Because of these requirements, a lot of complex and precise parts needed. This required fabricating some of the parts with very different processes such as forming sheet metal parts and then post machining them.

Excell Solutions was there for the debug and tweaking of the design, which required tweaking some of the components. The end result was that the arm performed great.

American Science and Engineering Inc.
{Over the last two months, American Science and Engineering has had several programs that required very quick turnaround on many parts. Excell Solutions went above and beyond what we would normally expect from a supplier to ensure our new product development success. Many of these parts were delivered the same day, with most of the more complex parts delivered within a week. It is because your dedication and willingness to do the impossible that we are able to stay on schedule and meet the demanding timelines that we are tasked with. Everyone at American Science and Engineering appreciates your efforts.
{I want to say THANK YOU so very much that just doesn’t express the gratitude I want to convey to you and your team over the past few months. I know since coming on board with Dakota Systems things have been less than easy, shall I say. As you were working over the holiday weekend, my customers as well as myself were also working to get the tools fabricated for test. The work that your team has accomplished in an outstanding & amazing feat. My customer is extremely pleased with your work and more importantly grateful for the time and effort you have put in to launch these 2 systems.

{I just want to say thanks to you, Steve and the great crew at Excell Solutions for your help this past weekend. The turnaround from receiving the PO at 1:33 on Friday and having parts machined and plated in my office at 1:33 on Monday was remarkable. It is a great feeling to know that I can count on a first class organization to pull it all together and have a “does whatever it takes” attitude to help out a customer when all seems hopeless. That level of service is what makes companies like Excell Solutions world class and keeps customers coming back. Again, thanks to the Excell Crew for a job well done.
{I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your help during our startup phase. We have learned heavily on you and your team and you have not disappointed us even on the request that were, frankly, not planned. You have allowed us to be opportunistic and that is what counts when you are a small fish in a big pond. In two weeks we have our big showing and we could not have ready without your services. Please let your team know that we appreciate their efforts, and we look forward to a long prosperous relationship.
