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.
