Designed on the principles of lean manufacturing to reduce waste and improve workflow, robotic arc welding workcells can provide accuracy, reliability, versatility and speed for many industrial applications spanning diverse industries. While some manufacturers would argue the most efficient robotic workcell on the market is the one with the smallest footprint, there are other factors to consider. Which leads us to the question: what is the most efficient use of valuable floorspace? Read More

Manufacturers today need to be confident in their capabilities to produce better quality products in the safest environment possible, while managing to save on costs. This assurance can be especially difficult to come by when the product assembly process includes manual painting, coating or other chemical application. However, fine-tuning the spraying process via industrial robotic automation offers key benefits that can help manufacturers thrive. Read More

The stakes are high for manufacturers producing automotive parts. Automobile drivers and passengers rely on weld quality to hold up under the conditions for which it was designed. One uncaught mistake during the fabrication process could leave a business vulnerable or worse, especially when the part in question is “safety critical” to an assembly. Read More

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
