Introduced Robots To Boost Powder Metallurgy Production

A U.S structural Powder Metallurgy components and porous metal filters producer, has introduced robots into its production line. The company expects the new technology to enable it to streamline its manufacturing lines and reduce the high wage costs associated with its location.

The company reported that it had built two press cells of robots mounted centrally for dual cavity compaction robotic removal. The dual robot, dual cavity combination was said to have increased manufacturing capacity significantly.

This increase is partly because human operators can have difficulty removing two parts from a machine at one time. The stated increase in production is expected to allow the company to enter new markets and bring on higher volume applications.
