Since 1951, Keck-Craig has been developing automation and building production machinery for
high-speed assembly and packaging of consumer products, industrial equipment and medical
devices. Many of these machines are used in production operations that have never been done
before or assembly situations where extra high precision is required.
Services include concept development, detail design, fabrication of prototype models for testing
and refinement, preparation of production drawings and final fabrication. All designs incorporate
state-of-the-art technology plus full utilization of off-the-shelf components. Production machinery
and industrial prototypes are engineered, fabricated and assembled in-house. Keck-Craig’s fabrication
shop is on site, secure, convenient and confidential. High quality is assured by decades of experience.
Examples of machinery designed and built for clients are shown below. Click pictures for a larger view.
Staple Assembly Machine
Automated assembly of wire
staple with insulator for use
with high line transmission
Machine handles six sizes galvanized wire
staples and two of plastic insulators at feed
rates of 40–50 per minute.
Dosimeter Film Packaging
Automated cutting, calibration
and packaging of dosimeter
film for use in radiation
Initial feed of 8” x 10” sheets of film is cut into
1 cm squares, fed through rotary indexing table
for calibration and off loaded to feeder for
insertion into 2” x 3” aluminum pouches at
throughputs of 150 –180 per hour.
Quality Control Instrument
High Precision Rheometer to
measure shear/creep characteristics
adhesives for Avery Dennison
Digital Foil Printing Press
Integrated printing machine
combining electrostatic copying
with direct feed to foil laminator
for foil overlay on printed copy.
Production Alignment Tool
Precision alignment of
optical path during assembly
of scanner CCD units for
Hewlett-Packard copiers. Flexure devices
eliminate backlash and achieve alignment
precision within ten millionths of an inch.
Production is 1,000 per day.
