Portable System for Metal Forming Combines AI and Robotics for Agile Manufacturing

Machina Labs, a leader in innovative manufacturing solutions, is proud to announce the launch of the Machina Deployable System, a game-changing portable robotic system designed for the digital formation and cutting of custom composite and metal parts. This revolutionary technology will make its public debut at FABTECH, held from September 11 to 14, 2023, in Chicago.


The Machina Deployable System combines the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced robotics with unprecedented portability. It enables manufacturers across various industries to enhance their production capabilities with minimal disruption to their facilities. This technology is versatile and can be easily integrated into manufacturing sites, even those with remote locations, without requiring significant foundational facility changes. It is compatible with any industrial robot, making it a flexible solution for diverse manufacturing needs.

Key features of the Machina Deployable System include:

  • The ability to form virtually any metal (including aluminum, steel, titanium, and Inconel) up to ¼ inch thick and produce parts as large as 12 x 5 x 4 feet.
  • A portable platform, two 7-axis robotic arms, tool-changing corral, configurable frame, and AI-driven process controls.
  • Rapid deployment on-premise, with the system up and running in a matter of hours.

Edward Mehr, CEO and Co-Founder of Machina Labs, expressed the significance of this innovation: "Our portable Deployable System is a game-changer in the manufacturing world. By providing manufacturers with a portable solution that combines flexibility, precision, and speed, we are essentially putting a twenty-first-century blacksmith shop in the backyard of any business that wants one."

From small custom workshops to large-scale manufacturing facilities, the Machina Deployable System redefines the possibilities of on-demand manufacturing, rapid prototyping, and agile hardware development and production. Notably, the United States Air Force is utilizing this technology for the maintenance and repair of older aircraft where suppliers and parts are no longer available.
