The “ask” 

Pearl & Okaya, a design engineering firm out of Japan that supports tier one OEMs in the midwest region,  needed two pedestals for bench grinders. Specifically, they were building robotic cells and needed a big frame to support the robot heads as part of the door assembly process. 

Separately, Pearl & Okaya needed to keep people away from the robotic cell. They asked that we produce several different styles and shapes of safety guards, with visibility to see the robotic cell beyond it. While the fence was basic, we needed to do several variations for a winding floor plan with different openings around the robotic cell.

How it was used

A custom designed support frame for a robotic cell and a safety fence to safeguard colleagues from entering the robotic cell.

Unique about the specs

The final pieces were based on 3D designs from our customer.  One challenge we ran into was the the lack of measurements. As part of the upfront quality checks, we filled in the recommended measurements. 

Unique about how we helped the customer

We went deeper with spec reviews ahead of time to reduce rework mid-project
