Motor Wheel/STEMCO has been providing a diverse line of systems and components for the commercial vehicle industry for many years. The company produces a wide range of products, including wheel end components, brake products, suspension products, STEMCO equipment, and tire and mileage solutions for commercial vehicles. By adding automation to these processes, Motor Wheel/STEMCO will only further improve their operations.
Recently, Motor Wheel/STEMCO decided to hire RobotWorx to build a FANUC R-2000iA/165F RJ3iB for their facility in Berea, Kentucky. This was the facility’s first time purchasing an industrial robot, and according to John Tomic, of Motor Wheel/STEMCO, they were pleased with their purchase.
“As a first time customer, we were given the best treatment when it comes to training and service,” Tomic stated. “RobotWorx has met all of our requirements, and we would use them again.”
The FANUC system brought a lot of advantages to the company. They were able to improve the organization of their production area, improve safety, and reduce downtime. The company also thought that the cost of the system was great. “It is the best dollar value found for this type of product,” Tomic stated. “Much better than new OEM supplier.”
