In the midst of the current global pandemic, massive challenges to public health and safety have impacted the global economy resulting in significant levels of unemployment in many countries. While small businesses are scaling down or declaring bankruptcy, critical industries like manufacturing are stepping up to meet the challenges of the pandemic. Rapidly deployed, innovative solutions are helping provide much-needed medical devices, services, and supplies.
Red-D-Arc Innovates with Robotic Welding
Since systems are at full capacity, custom metal fabrication and welding equipment industries are also in high demand to support production for medical devices and diagnostic equipment. Throughput is the most critical key performance indicator (KPI) for manufacturers, and an efficient rate of production requires consistency and high-quality output.
Pierce Metals Inc – a steel fabricator located in Bristol, TN offers structural steel fabrication, miscellaneous/custom steel fabrication, steel stairs, handrails and other steel products to the commercial and industrial sectors.
Pierce reached out to their local Airgas team of Gary Killebrew, Chris Smithand Gary Roberts in search of a solution for cutting flat plate as well as large I-beams, on the same machine.
“This project is an excellent example of the value that Red-D-Arc Cutting Services and Airgas are able to deliver for our customers. There is nothing else like it in the industry.”
