Walter Expands Metalworking Automation & Robotics Solutions

A new automation service has resulted from Walter's partnerships with a large network of system integrators and end-of-arm tool makers.

Metalworking supplier Walter Surface Technologies announced Nov. 13 that it has launched a new service that expands its automation and robotic solutions for industrial manufacturers.

Walter detailed that it has partnered with a large network of North American system integrators and end-of-arm tool manufacturers that specialize in robotic systems and material removal operations “to craft a fast but thorough” automation process that involves:

  • a readiness assessment; 
  • the evaluation of requirements and objectives; 
  • the selection of the right technology; and 
  • the design of the new system; 
  • as well as testing and integration, performance review, training and ongoing maintenance

These partners include known brands such as PushCorp, ATI Automation, and Effecto (formerly Applied Robotics), and enable Walter to better support end users from beginning to end, from the quoting and conceptualization stage to the installation and optimization of the system, the company said. To further customize the solution and design the perfect system based on the end user’s needs, Walter works closely with all parties involved to ensure product availability, ensuring a seamless integration.
