Shop owner Steve Meyer's video interview above summarizes how his shop incorporated CNC automation into the traditionally manual shop.​

While making a visit to Toolcraft LLC in Fort Wayne, Indiana, for an article in PM’s November issue, we discovered how Steve Meyer is incorporating CNC automation into his traditionally manual shop. During our visit, we recorded a short “in his own words” video interview with Steve that summarizes the article.

Steve installed a two-machine turning cell using Okuma Genos series lathes that are serviced by a FANUC robot to produce a production job for one of his key customers. The system integration was handled by Gosiger Automation.

The article will give more detail, but we hope this 90-second video whets your appetite to learn more about the steps this shop took to upgrade its production capability and win an important contract from its customer. Don't forget to look for the article in our November issue to learn more.
