Navus has always been known for our ground-breaking welding work, but did you know that we specialize in a range of industry-specific custom automation? Over the years we’ve helped countless clients realize the potential for their business to grow faster and stronger through automated processes. In heavy-industry manufacturing, custom automation can be especially beneficial.
Our newest free white paper features a heavy-industry project that seemed impossible. The manual process our clients had in place before transforming their process was time-consuming and exhausting. They knew they needed a change, both to speed up manufacturing time and for their employees’ wellbeing. Our clients worked with other custom automation specialists before approaching us, but the prototypes these specialists designed always failed at one of the most crucial steps of the process they tried to create.
With this track record, our clients were worried that what they had dreamt up was impossible. But lucky for them, our engineers shine when it comes to making the impossible possible.
Our clients needed a machine that could locate individual parts that weighed up to 14,000 pounds, identify the part by recognizing its shape and features, create a tool path for it, and then mill the sharp edges on the part to a precise radius. Previously employees in our clients’ facility had used electric grinders to manually grind sharp edges, which left them exhausted and at risk of personal injury. With their new process, they wanted their employees to be able to oversee the process from a safe distance.
Even though our clients had been disappointed over and over again by other engineers’ failures to create an automated process that worked for their needs, they came to us with the mindset to try one more time. Navus’ team of innovative, expert engineers developed a system that not only worked but accomplished the task in half of the allotted time per part.
In this free white paper, you’ll discover how this custom, dynamic system:
- Decreases safety risks through remote operation
- Saves money and time with a faster production time
- Increases throughput, allowing more revenue opportunities
- Ensures quality-assurance through precise measurements and processes
