Foundry and Lean Manufacturing in Clyde, Ohio

The state of Ohio has a wide range of manufacturing businesses that have integrated industrial robots to improve their processes. The robotic technology that has been integrated has helped industries of all types such as steel cutting and molding plastics.


There is a great diver­si­ty in the man­u­fac­tur­ing around the state of Ohio. Many dif­fer­ent types of man­u­fac­tur­ing can exist in the same area, like foundry steel works exist­ing in the same place as injec­tion mold­ing plas­tics man­u­fac­tur­ing. This is the case in Clyde, Ohio. No mat­ter what indus­try a man­u­fac­tur­er serves, there is only pos­i­tives when com­pa­nies decide to improve their pro­duc­tiv­i­ty with the help of inte­grat­ed robot­ic technology.

Ger­stenslager Com­pa­ny has a branch of its inter­na­tion­al com­pa­ny in Clyde, Ohio. This is a steel work­ing com­pa­ny with blast fur­naces. Foundry work, like is found in steel plants, can pro­duce hot, humid work con­di­tions that can be uncom­fort­able and some­times dan­ger­ous to human work­ers. That is one of the ways robots can help – cer­tain robots are spe­cial­ly designed to work in even the hottest con­di­tions. This moves human work­ers out of the hot areas, which improves not only the health of work­ers, but also the morale of the facil­i­ty over­all. By rais­ing the health and morale lev­els, man­u­fac­tur­ers will have less down­time and sick time dur­ing pro­duc­tion. Also, robots do not need days off, breaks or vaca­tions, which means an even fur­ther decrease in down­time, which improves pro­duc­tion numbers.

Anoth­er type of man­u­fac­tur­er, Revere Plas­tics Sys­tems, is one of top 25 injec­tion mold­ed plas­tics com­pa­nies in the U.S. They are head­quar­tered in Clyde, Ohio. This com­pa­ny prides itself on lean man­u­fac­tur­ing process­es. Lean man­u­fac­tur­ing is anoth­er way that robots can help a pro­duc­tion line. Robot­ic automa­tion pro­motes lean man­u­fac­tur­ing by cut­ting down on the amount of equip­ment or steps need­ed to cre­ate a prod­uct. One robot can per­form sev­er­al dif­fer­ent appli­ca­tions like mate­r­i­al han­dling, mate­r­i­al removal and weld­ing, depend­ing on the end effec­tor. With this type of ver­sa­til­i­ty, robots can dri­ve down pro­duc­tion costs.
