Clinton Township, Michigan — May 8, 2006 – KUKA Robotics Corporation, a leading global manufacturer of industrial robots, today announced it has been selected by C.M.H. Manufacturing of Lubbock, Texas to provide robots for its new casting total work cell. The permanent mold casting cells will utilize a KUKA robot and are designed to complete multiple casting tasks such as furnace and casting tending, sawing, sanding, milling/drilling, inspection and machining. “C.M.H.’s new total work cell concept is a great tool for manufacturers working towards lean manufacturing,” said Kevin Kozuszek, director of marketing for KUKA Robotics Corporation. “In addition to the advantage of one cell that accomplishes multiple tasks it also allows casters to have an integrated work cell that can take a part from liquid metal to finished part without employees being exposed to hazardous working conditions.” “When we were designing the cell we needed the most flexible and highest performing robot available,” said John Hall, president of C.M.H. Manufacturing. “We standardized on KUKA robots as we felt they out perform other robotic manufacturer’s products for flexibility and performance.”C.M.H.
