Glass, Automotive and Building Solutions in Upper Sandusky, Ohio

Nov 17, 2013

Upper Sandusky, Ohio is reaping the benefits of industrial robot integration on their glass, automotive, and building production lines. The precision that is required for glass cutting or part creation makes the choice for industrial robot integration a no-brainer. Robotic systems can run without needing breaks or vacations.


Upper San­dusky is not exact­ly a large town in Ohio. The town of less than 7,000 res­i­dents has inter­est­ing his­to­ry. Though it is far­ther south than San­dusky, Ohio, it is at the upper reach­es of the San­dusky Riv­er, hence the name Upper San­dusky. At the inter­sec­tion of impor­tant US High­ways 30 and 23, the city has access to sev­er­al ship­ping routes, which make it per­fect for man­u­fac­tur­ers. Those man­u­fac­tur­ers, many who deal in glass, auto­mo­tive and build­ing prod­uct man­u­fac­tur­ing can improve their busi­ness­es with the use of robot­ic automa­tion.

One man­u­fac­tur­er in Upper San­dusky, Guardian, actu­al­ly works in all three indus­tries – glass, auto­mo­tive and build­ing prod­ucts. All of these indus­tries use appli­ca­tions that can be ele­vat­ed with robot automa­tion. Fiber­glass parts for cars have to be cut in a pre­cise man­ner to make sure that the parts accu­rate­ly fit the car they are made for. Robot cut­ting sys­tems can cut fiber­glass parts with pin­point pre­ci­sion, as well as mak­ing sure the cuts are smooth.

By using these robot­ic sys­tems, man­u­fac­tur­ers can also improve the health lev­els in their shops. Fiber­glass cut­ting can send par­ti­cles into the air that can cause res­pi­ra­tion prob­lems for work­ers. By mov­ing work­ers away from the dan­ger­ous area, man­u­fac­tur­ers can cut down on sick leave and down­time. Also, robot­ic sys­tems can run vir­tu­al­ly 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They do not need days off, vaca­tion or breaks, which decreas­es down­time even fur­ther and saves man­u­fac­tur­ers on labor cuts.

Along with fiber­glass cut­ting, robots can also help Guardian with the cut­ting of glass for build­ings and auto­mo­biles, debur­ring of fiber­glass, glass and oth­er build­ing prod­ucts, and even the pol­ish­ing of fin­ished pieces. The appli­ca­tion pos­si­bil­i­ties are almost end­less, and the sav­ings to the man­u­fac­tur­ers are almost as endless.
