NYC CNC Shop Tour – MetalQuest Unlimited

John Saunders of NYC CNC visited our facility in Hebron, NE to see our manufacturing processes first-hand. He captured a video walkthrough of our shop floor, which he posted to his YouTube channel and titled, "Flock of Fanuc." His choice of video title stems from the robotic automation we have managed to integrate into our manufacturing processes for higher quality products with faster lead times.

Why Robotics?

Currently, we have a total of 18 Fanuc robots spread throughout our shop floor. Each robot performs its assigned tasks with an impressive level of accuracy. Without a doubt, our biggest motivator for our ongoing and growing use of robotic automation stems from our desire to ensure that our valuable team members are able to work in safe, empowering positions. As often as possible, we integrate Fanuc robots into our manufacturing processes to automate the jobs that fall outside of these criteria.

In our opinion, automation-friendly jobs might be dirty, hazardous, or jobs that are simply mundane. We strive to maintain a working environment that inspires and empowers our team members, and the use of robotics on our shop floor has helped us place our team members in positions that play upon their strengths and develop their skillsets. Check out the following NYC CNC shop tour video to learn more about our motivation for incorporating robotics into our manufacturing processes.

Invaluable Input

Being that John is a machining entrepreneur with a wealth of machining knowledge and an undeniable passion for the industry, we have a great appreciation for the dialogue we shared with John during his visit. The feedback he provided is invaluable to all of us on the MetalQuest team. John – If you are reading this, know that you are welcome at both of our locations any time!
