Cleveland, Ohio – Multiple original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and startups are investing time and resources into mastering the shift from manual, mechanical platforms to autonomous, electric vehicles (EVs). Companies that can turn the combination of EV performance, range, and durability into commercial success will increasingly dominate the competition.
Cleveland, Ohio – Robotic welding has allowed manufacturers to meet the automotive industry’s precise repeatability demands at even faster speeds than previously possible, resulting in lower costs and more advanced, higher quality vehicles. This, along with the increasing innovations in automation technologies, is driving widespread adoption of robotic welding systems. Read below to learn when to implement advanced automated welding technologies as well as strategies that can increase uptime.
Cleveland, Ohio – In 2020, Detroit’s auto show moves to June, abandoning its lead-off role as the industry’s pace-setting exposition. The 2019 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) was evidence why – several major automakers didn’t show, Detroit’s home-town companies had little new to share, and the energy level at Cobo Hall was muted during the event.
Cleveland, Ohio – Friction-stir welding (FSW) has garnered a lot of attention in recent years because of the technology’s ability to join dissimilar metals – primarily steel to aluminum. However, much of the development has been driven by low-volume needs that have resulted in large, custom-built machines.
