BRUCE THE ROBOTIC WELDER

 

It doesn’t matter if your VW Bug changes into a robot from outer space or your ’58 Plymouth Fury is possessed. People love giving their vehicles names, it signifies our close connection to our machinery and after all – machines are alive… right?

Not long after McCombs Steel in Statesville, NC, got their Ocean Challenger Robotic Welder, they realized what an asset and valued employee it had become. Huh, “valued employee”? Yes, you heard me correctly. “Bruce”, as he is affectionately known around the shop, has been welding up a storm with minimal breaks, no lunch, and never calls in sick. Bruce the robotic welder was most recently named McCombs Steel’s Employee of the Month.

If you would like to have an employee like Bruce, give us a call 800-286-3624, or visit https://www.oceanmachinery.com/solutions/challenger-robotic-welder.html for more info.

Special Thanks to Adam at McCombs Steel for the footage of “Bruce” and his new rotators working an easy 168 hour shift.

 

 

 

CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT: Division Five – Hollywood, SC

Division Five

Division Five, a structural fabricator located in Hollywood, SC, has been a valued customer of Ocean Machinery since their 2006 installation of the Terminator 1842 Saw and Avenger Drill Line.

Division Five Ocean Avenger CNC Drill Line

The Ocean Liberator CNC Beam Coper was added in 2018 to minimize layout and coping times. A recent visit to their facility reveals W16 x 40’s requiring rat holes, web and flange beveling, taking around 7-minutes and 30 seconds per-end to cope and bevel.  Previous manual processing took about one-hour after grinding and final cleanup.

We also observed a “mammoth” W40 x 199 beam being drilled on their Ocean Avenger.  The Liberator Beam Coper was used to perform a trim-cut on this “heavy-weight” prior to drilling it.

We thank the team at Division Five for employing the Ocean brand of structural machinery to supplement their fabrication efforts.
