On Thursday, June 10 Felsomat USA swung open the doors at their USA headquarters in Schaumburg, IL and welcomed more than 40 guests to their Innovation Day. The team was excited to welcome a variety of customers, media, and suppliers to their first in-person event since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.
“We’ve missed our customers, and it was so exciting to show them all the innovations we’ve been working on over the last year,” says Daniel Maerklin, president and CEO of Felsomat USA. He continued, “while as a company we’ve worked hard to develop and implement the solutions needed to survive, and even thrive during the pandemic, we’ve really been missing the personal relationships we’ve developed with our colleagues, suppliers, and customers – so it was very important to us that we host an event that gets everyone together in person, safely.”
Throughout the day, attendees experienced a wide variety of live demonstrations on Felsomat’s state-of-the-art automation solutions, exciting presentations from expert team members, and experienced networking opportunities that many of us have been so desperately craving over the course of the last year.
A few of the live demonstrations included a state-of-the-art fully automated robotic laser welding line for rear-differential units (RDU) as well as a power transmission unit (PTU), the Felsomat low-cost flexible robotic load cell BAUSTEIN, a modular robotic loading unit that can be easily configured to the specific custom application, as well as a demonstration of the FHC 80 – Felsomat’s high speed hobbing machine. “Our goal was to allow guests to see a wide variety of our automation and production solutions. I think we achieved that, and guests seemed very impressed with the technologies on display,” says James Petiprin, strategic account manager.
In addition to the machining demonstrations, Felsomat offered a variety of live presentations that highlighted its expertise across a variety of automation and manufacturing systems. Presentations were given by Strategic Account Managers, James Petiprin and Ryan Berman, as well as Vice President of Sales, Matt Skelton, and covered a range of topics including-mobility stator and rotor assembly, FSC Machine Loading, and end of line packout cells.
