Climbing the Ladder with Robotics

POSTED 11/22/2019

Cotterman, a manufacturer of rolling metal ladders, wanted to reduce freight costs by centralizing the manufacturing of ladder parts to one plant. To help, Acieta designed a multi-application robotic system with three FANUC arms that run 24/7, seamlessly making ladder treads from bending to welding to palletizing. As a result, Cotterman has saved on floor space, reduced shipping costs, improved turnaround time and streamlined labor, delivering a higher ROI for the company.
