To meet the aggressively growing demand for automation and robotics in manufacturing, Methods Machine Tools Inc. is expanding its automation capabilities, launching a new Automation and Integration Center in its Charlotte, North Carolina, facility. The center, slated to open this spring and already ramping up, is staffed by systems integration engineers and will have a range of equipment and capabilities from customer consultation to building cells and performing run-offs.
The 10,000-square-foot center will expand Methods’ existing automation program and provide innovative systems for customers throughout the U.S.
"Manufacturers are increasingly realizing that incorporating automation and robotics are key to their productivity, profitability, and future," said Mr. Bryon Deysher, President and CEO of Methods Machine Tools, Inc. "Our new Automation and Integration Center will provide expanded capability for all projects spanning the U.S. and enhance the value of our customer experience at every level. I envision the future need for expanding this model in other regions of the U.S. as well."
