K-zell Metals Drives Productivity with Pre-engineered Robotic Weld Cells

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

At a time when manufacturers are looking for new ways to diversify and compete against global competition, K-zell Metals, Inc. of Phoenix has been proactive in anticipating changes in the market through process improvement. Through the addition of two Miller PerformArc™ pre-engineered robotic weld cells, K-zell was able to substantially increase productivity (by more than 20 percent), reduce set-up time and find new efficiencies in its welding processes — even on relatively short production runs. A modular design allowed each system to be quickly dropped into the flow of the shop floor, and features such as offline programming have helped the company quickly take on new work with minimal start-up time.

Introducing Miller Welding Automation

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

We kicked off FABTECH today with a major announcement that introduces a new strategic partnership with Panasonic Welding Systems and the creation of Miller Welding Automation, a new Miller business unit.

This strategic partnership makes Miller Welding Automation the distribution route for Panasonic robotic welding arms in North America. The welding arms will be combined with Miller products and delivered to the market as part of a complete automated welding system. As part of this transaction, Miller has purchased assets of the Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America (PFSA) welding automation business.

Watch a video of Miller Welding Automation leaders discussing the new strategic partnership or check out our new Welding Automation page for the press release and brochure.
