Maximizing Your Productive Welding Space

Posted by Chris Anderson on Jul 24, 2018 10:00:00 AM

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?
