Eliminating defects in assembly by 95% using Iris™ Spatial Positioning System.

Komatsu America Corp.


undefinedKomatsu was seeking to reduce errors in manufacturing, while at the same time increasing their throughput and efficiency to enable them to meet increased demand. They were using aluminum templates to guide workers in welding brackets, stand-offs and studs on large mining truck frames. These templates were costly to manufacture, design and redesign.
