Deburring automated robot cell for high volume highly repetitive parts.
We are using in house 3D printer to create work holding jigs and fixtures instead of having tool maker machine them.
The other part is our existing workforce, this year alone we had one engineer go out for robotics training to Fanuc Michigan, another engineer completed advanced lathe/mill turn machine training to have better understanding of the machine’s capability.
Next month we have one of our lead operators in swiss department going for programming software training to be better
