I play against my buddy's admech + knights list reasonably often, so I can offer some general advice, though for more specifics an admech player will have better info.

I observe that my friend tends to run his plasma calivers in his vanguard squads, which tend to get close enough to make use of it. His ranger squads tend to be small and cheap, though I see him run longer ranged special weapons like the sniper rifles in those ones.

Looking at your Kastelan robots, i notice you have the flamer up top, but guns instead of fists. If you're standing back to use the gun-hands, maybe swap out the flamer up top for a gun as well, so that you can get some use out of it?

You are taking two SH Aux detachments each with a knight. Might it make sense to take a third knight, a very cheap one like the Armiger Helverin, and consolidate your knights into one Super Heavy Detachment? This will give you chapter tactics (IIRC, SH Aux detachments get stratagems, but not chapter tactics) for your knights. You could drop your autocannon walker and the sniper assassin to try to pull together the points to do this. Giving your Knights a chapter tactic, plus getting a few extra command points to play with, might make this army stronger.

Hmm I thought all I was missing out on running the knights like that was the command points
As they are different house holds one is vulker(claiming shroudpalsm for ad mech) and one is hawkshroud(claiming iron hail stubbers and outflank)
The robots are normally in range as I use stygies and move them closer and then pop the strat to make them shoot twice( might be slightly incorrect) 
As for the squads he runs big squads of vanguards and small squads of rangers probably each with at least 2 special weapons Im guessing
