Robots in manufacturing get helping hands from humans
Properly applied robotics can improve throughput, prevent repetitive injury, and make manufacturing more efficient, but not without human-supplied engineering and training. Denso Robotics recently asked Applied Manufacturing Technologies Inc. (AMT) to provide engineering and support services for Denso robots. Under terms of the agreement, AMT will support Denso Midwest customers with training, robot programming, and robot re-build services.
With this agreement Denso customers in the Midwest will have another local service option increasing service, training, quality, and responsiveness, says Joe Campbell, chief operating officer for Applied Manufacturing Technologies. In making the announcement, Denso cited AMT’s engineering expertise, commitment to the customer, and high standards for support services.
Denso Corp., based in Kariya, Aichi prefecture, Japan, says it supplies advanced technology, systems, and components to customers globally, including all major automakers. It employs approximately 106,000 people, and listed consolidated global sales for fiscal year ended March 31, 2006, at $27.3 billion. Founded in 1989, AMT supplies consulting and engineering services, offering single-source automation and manufacturing engineering for automotive, aerospace, medical, heavy equipment, and consumer products industries. More than 200 AMT engineers provide automation design, engineering, and process consulting services.
