As part of their strategy to improve cycle time and throughput, this Indiana GLTAAC client used TAAF co-funding to help implement an automated robotic welding system. Working with an outside consultant, they first provided extensive, hands-on training for four workers in a two-week class. When the same consultant delivered the robot and components, the four trainees were involved with everything from installation to on-site programming/quality control. The consultant then worked with the trainees during the 1st week of full production. The robotics cell is now live, and contributing to increased product throughput. Total cost of the training/installation project was $125,000 (TAAF paid 50%).
