Meet Baxter, the newest addition to the Cutting Dynamics family.
Bill Carson, president and CEO of Cutting Dynamics stated, “Baxter is working right next to our team, putting products on the belt for the final finish. We’re in the business of precision: consistency and accuracy drive our business – and Baxter’s reliability and flexibility will be a great advantage to us as we look to leverage collaborative automation in out facilities.”
Since Baxter joined Cutting Dynamic’s work force, operational efficiency has improved, and several team members can now take on more complex work. This can be attributed to Baxter’s ability to rapidly adapt to changes in tasks.
Baxter is unlike your ordinary, everyday worker; he is a robot created using the latest software technology. Baxter is a product of Rethink Robotics, a manufacturing company that works to combine robots with skilled laborers, giving businesses a competitive advantage. Baxter is trainable, safe, and cost-effective, working alongside his one hundred and twenty-five colleagues in the thermal deburring line at Cutting Dynamic’s Avon, Ohio, location.
“Cutting Dynamics is a great example of innovative American manufacturing – with a stand out reputation for quality, reliability, and precision,” said CMO of Rethink Robotics, Jim Lawton. “We are delighted that Baxter can make this highly successful company even more competitive – especially in a competitive environment where high performance and flexibility are also expected to drive new efficiencies.”
With Baxter doing so well, Cutting Dynamics is implementing a second robot within the next few months, improving Cutting Dynamic’s reputation as the leading specializer in laser cutting, hydroforming, and thermoplastic fabrication. The future of Cutting Dynamics looks bright.
