Problem: A Minnesota die casting company utilized a robotic automation system that tended to a series of horizontal machining centers. After a few years of operation, the production requirements changed significantly. The die casting company desired to move the automation away from the horizontal machining centers completely, and instead integrate the automation into to a vertical machining center and lathe. Rather than undergo the costly expense of replacing their existing robotic automation system, they were looking for a way to alter and adjust it to meet the new application requirements they had set.
