With cyber-packed areas like Silicon Valley, California is seen as one of the hotbeds of innovation and technology. Of course, the state is a haven of old school and new school technologies butted up against one another. A perfect example is Hayward California – a mixture of high tech cleanliness and modern day fabrication, manufacturing that has been around for decades.
While companies may have new ways to improve upon sheet metal fabrication, the same processes need to be performed – stamping, forming, cutting, welding, etc. This is where companies like Inland Metal Technologies in Hayward, CA allow robotic technology to step in and lend a hand. Robots can tend presses and move sheet metal pieces from one press to another. They can also cut, mill, weld and form sheet metal pieces as needed for the product at hand. By using a newer technology for an old school industry, manufacturers can save money on labor and production costs.
But old school manufacturing, like sheet metal fabrication, is not the only industry that is capitalizing on robotics. Newer industries like the medical and cleanroom industries also need robots that can work in highly specialized conditions. Companies like Pentagon Technologies Inc. provide contamination detection and protection products for the semiconductor, microelectronic and solar industries. These products are delicate and require a robot to handle them. There are less contaminants made by a robot than by a human, and robots have a more delicate touch with fragile components than some humans have. They can also touch every piece with the same or varying levels of tolerance – unlike a human. By using robots for these important, delicate machines, manufacturers can ensure a product that will have few errors once in the marketplace.
