Tech-Con Automation Posted 01/21/2015
CAMBRIDGE, ON— In-House Solutions is pleased to announce that Tech-Con Automation has successfully added the OCTOPUZ solutions to their sales and waterjet teams systems and is attributing the company’s most recent equipment sale to date to the robot programming and simulation software. Burlington, ON-based Tech-Con has a 20-year history of providing quality robotic systems and proven integrated solutions, and OCTOPUZ supports their efforts as a source for complete automation solutions.
“Our company is committed to designing products using the latest in technology. OCTOPUZ allows us to quickly and accurately create robotic cut path programs from 3D model, reducing timelines for our customers,” said Nino LaDuca, VP & General Manager.
Tech-Con Automation is a one-stop source for custom automation solutions and uses a customer-focused approach to engineer and integrate control and automated systems within Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. Last April they purchased and implemented two seats of OCTOPUZ for their sales team. That was followed by an additional seat of OCTOPUZ acquired for Tech-Con’s waterjet programming team.
The company has expanded their robotics offerings to include 6-axis dimensional waterjet cutting technology with numerous options in cell configurations, including cantilever, T-column (wall mount), overhead gantry or simple floor mount cells. OCTOPUZ allows the waterjet programming team to efficiently optimize their clients single to multi robot cell programs while lowering time to production.
“When first meeting with the team at Tech-Con the focus was towards waterjet programming but as the meeting progressed the boardroom began to fill with more staff viewing the capabilities of creating animated 3D automation cells in a fraction of the time (compared to using CAD software). Upgrading the sales team to use the OCTOPUZ software platform would be a huge asset to their growing company.” said Gregory Smuk, Sr.Technical Sales Specialist, In-House Solutions Inc. “We’re very pleased that OCTOPUZ has proven to be such a successful tool for Tech-Con Automation both in the sales and waterjet teams. In our current and future economy, companies are looking to utilize technology to advance and grow internal capabilities. We’re confident that the OCTOPUZ software will continue to benefit Tech-Con as they continue to attract customers who are in need of automation.”
