Plasma Cutting and MIG Welding Cobots Eliminate Manual Clean-up and Double Output
October 7, 2022
Carriere Industrial Supply (CIS) in Sudbury, Canada produces heavy earth-moving equipment for harsh mining environments. With large workpieces that are difficult to move and a low-volume, high-mix manufacturing environment, traditional robots aren’t ideal. Cobots from Universal Robots now handle plasma cutting and MIG welding tasks, letting CIS bring the robot to the work—rather than the other way around – while eliminating manual cleanup on cut parts, saving 1,000 hours on a single project.
