The company wanted to achieve a completely automated work cell.
The company pulled together a variety of resources and integrated them to achieve full automation. Caron Engineering’s AutoComp was one of the integrated solutions used to make this possible.
“After every fourth part was machined, data was sent to AutoComp software, which processes the information and compares it to the master. If the software determines that an offset (in .0001″ increments) is necessary to maintain accurate machining, it works through the control to automatically make this correction. No operator intervention is necessary.” (Manufacturing Engineering Publication, 6/1/2014)
