How do you improve throughput and productivity in an environment that is already operating lean? HIROTEC AMERICA asked the same question after spending three decades focused on the K2 philosophy of working towards continuous improvements (kaizen) and revolutionary changes in technology and process (kaikaku). Taking a deep look at their internal processes, they were able to pinpoint specific tasks within the plant that yielded inefficiencies. Read More

Let’s face it. The public has a surface-level understanding of the robotic engineering industry. Thanks to the media, and some healthy imagination, we envision a new, progressive industry filled with modern engineers, hovercrafts and automated toys. But the robotic engineering industry is neither new, nor occupied by a new breed of engineers (at least not yet). For high school students preparing for STEM careers in this field, it’s important to separate the facts from the fiction and dive into the core of the matter. Here are few things to know: Read More
