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.
