With a Daihen robotic arm in their shop’s arsenal, Howard Products Inc. has increased its production of metal and aluminum products times three.
“We couldn’t do what we do without it,” says Martha Hawley, who manages the Worcester, Massachusetts-based shop with her husband, David. “Aluminum is difficult to weld. It requires attention, and it requires attention all the time because you’ve got to flow it all together. It’s a very long weld. (The arm) has freed up our welders to go on and do other welding projects throughout the day.”
