Robotic Forming


With our state-of-the-art Trumpf TruBend Cell 5000 bending station, even large parts (up to 300 lbs.) are like “putty in our hands,” offering a fully automated bending process for the safe and efficient production of consistently high-quality parts.

Robotic Welding

Most of our high-volume, repetitive welding is performed on robotic weld cells. In 2020 we will continue to install the latest technology from Yaskawa Motoman Robotics.  11 Industrial Robots in various weld cell configurations utilize Comarc (Seam Tracking), TouchSense and offline programming for higher repeatability and throughput.  The added benefits of superior welding quality and repeatability from Fronius USA LLC allows for the highest quality welding in the market.

Automated Storage and Retrieval

Our newest investment (expected commission in early 2021) will marry the most advanced technology available in flat laser cutting systems with automated storage and retrieval and finished parts separation. We will be installing a 20-tower Stopa storage system, tied to Trumpf LiftMaster and PartMaster. All of this will feed our most productive 8,000 and 10,000-watt Fiber Lasers. This highly productive system will be the centerpiece of our operations for years to come!
