How Dimic Steel Tech Cut Their Programming Time In Half
OCTOPUZ Inc. Posted 07/06/2017
Dimic Steel Tech, a metal fabrication and machining service provider in Upland, California uses OCTOPUZ to program their robot, a KUKA KR 16 for MIG welding, from start to finish. Every part they have is programmed in OCTOPUZ so that it is easily placed on the robot and production can begin immediately.
Dimic Steel Tech prides itself on bridging the gap between state-of-the-art technologies with a tradition of craftsmanship, which results in very complicated parts. Before using OCTOPUZ, Dimic Steel Tech programmed parts manually, which sometimes took up to 4 hours to program especially complicated parts. Now that all programming is done within OCTOPUZ, programming time is cut in half, with parts that used to take 4 hours now taking 45 minutes to program.
“Investing in OCTOPUZ was a great decision. Not only do the time savings well outweigh the investment, but it also makes the job of a programmer so much easier. When you buy a product that saves time and makes the job for an employee easier, it doesn’t make sense not to invest in it.” – Ryan Mansfield, Robotic Welder Programmer/Operator at Dimic Steel Tech.
Over the years, Dimic Steel Tech has invested in the most modern fabrication machinery and software available on the market, enabling them to raise productivity and operating efficiency to new levels. OCTOPUZ Software is no exception to this rule. “If you have any robots in your company, and you spend time manually programming them, I strongly recommend using this product. It is a game changer in the industry, and I believe that any company who has it will be far ahead of their competition” says Mansfield.
“Not only is the software powerful, but the customer service is excellent as well. The team at OCTOPUZ goes above and beyond, and they truly take care of the customer. I am very impressed with the customer support at OCTOPUZ; the service tech responds in a timely manner, takes their time to explain the problem and how to do it correctly, and makes sure that the issue is 100% resolved before moving on” says Mansfield.
