Our fabrication and machining team works as a support function for the rest of the company. Instead of working on specific customer projects, they provide needed parts or services for projects at any location. Some of their fabrication capabilities include tubular frames, end of arm tools, C frames, robot risers and I beam structures.
“The team processes many different types of parts for all kinds of projects JR Automation is working on,” said Ryan Miller, Fabrication & Machining Operations Manager. “It is important for us to have capabilities to rescue projects when they are in need. Our team has always been, and will continue being, the support function for JR Automation no matter what the need.”
“The team goes above and beyond providing 24/7 support to ensure projects can be successful,” said Miller. “Recently we took part in cryogenic machining, freezing rubber and machining it. We also worked on some R&D by machining the inside of 20ft poles on our boring mill. On the fabrication side we are now much more capable of creating larger and heavier fabrications with 20-ton cranes at our fingertips.”
Getting the equipment and machinery for the Fab and Machining facility was a huge commitment that the team felt was important to best serve our customers.
Some of the new equipment to Fab and Machining includes:
Helping our team members feel valued and engaged in their roles is a top priority. JR Automation works hard to provide training and mentorship opportunities to encourage a more fulfilling career for our employees.
