GP&C Adds New Robots to Automate Machining

GPC automates machining

With demand rising for composite materials, General Plastics & Composites (GP&C) recently acquired two new robotic systems bring automation and efficiencies in machining. The new robots join another currently in use, and automates high-volume, repetitive tasks, reduces margins of error to negligible rates, and enables employees to focus on innovation, efficiency and other, more intricate processes that ultimately lay the groundwork for growth and success.

The fully autonomous robots take materials that have been saw cut from a staging area, perform a pre-operational cleaning and load the piece in the CNC machine. The robot will then remove the finished piece and place it in a collection bin for the operator to remove the part. Once the robot has removed the finished part, it will communicate with the CNC to begin the machine process again and will begin loading.

GP&C is continually looking for cutting-edge opportunities to maximize efficiency, safety and maintain a competitive advantage in the market to better serve our customers. To learn more about our products, contact us at 713-644-1449 and
