A sudden increase in demand for their steel cabinets led Anglo Engineering to investigate ways to quickly automate highly repetitive welding operations.
High-end technology was needed to match existing production equipment and meet contract engineering demand. A bottleneck at a highly-repetitive skilled MIG brazing operation was to be replaced by a robot. Trials were to be run on the live production line to prove quality and reliability.
Anglo Engineering directors found that Autoline were the only robotic system supplier in NZ able to set up and run the full on-line test trial within three weeks. Productivity increased substantially while boring repetitive tasks were reduced. Soon after, more Demmeler tables, a robot slider and off-line programming software were added.
