Supporting SME’s

Olympus Technologies launched the Universal Robot Welding System to the market as SMEs needed a quality robotic welding solution at a lower price point than previously available. The welding processes are easy to program through the use of bespoke software written by Olympus. It is installed in a day, and can be in production the following day. Full training is provided before commissioning.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/2"][us_image image="1211" size="full"][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][us_separator size="small"][vc_column_text]

Company Statement:

Alan Vincent, Production Planning and Customer Operations Director, SMB Pressings, said:

“We chose Olympus’s welding system as they demonstrated its ease of programming with our parts, and its price compared to other solutions out there.”

“Four months on from placing the order, the robotic welder is now installed and fully operational. It will enable the company to increase the volume and quality of work it can complete in a day.”

“It’s going to be a valuable addition to our capabilities. It will deal with the more monotonous welding which will help to free up skilled staff for other duties, which will be a major benefit as we’re really busy at the moment.”

“We do a lot of work with the washroom industry, together with lockers, extrusions and others. Much of what we do is for local companies but we will look further afield as we’re well located where we are for the wider Midlands area.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row color_scheme="secondary"][vc_column][vc_column_text]
