Solutions Require Combinations
Everywhere participants looked, they saw the result of powerful partnerships. A FARO laser projecting on a new Bluco 2D table mounted to an ALM headstock and tailstock positioner was just one example. “Our new 2D table is going to allow companies that need much longer runs of table space to achieve that with less weight and expense than they’d get with a 3D table,” said Todd Bennett, a Bluco Senior Sales Engineer. “You add laser projection to that and now you’re taking the guesswork out of where each part and each modular component go. Add the positioner and now you don’t have to lift heavy parts, or climb to reach them. Now all of a sudden you’ve solved all your manufacturing problems with one solid solution.”
In other areas of the Validation Center, attendees saw other cutting-edge combos that included new modular solutions, cobots, robotic welding, weld booms, autonomous guided vehicles (AGVs), dust collection systems, pulse welding equipment, and a variety of positioners. Take a look at just some of the examples below. And if you missed the event, don’t worry…we’re already planning the next one!
