Headquartered in Bellevue, WA, MTAB USA provides solutions in Robotics, Computer Integrated Manufacturing, Mechatronics and complementary software. “Apart from our hardware lines, we use simulation packages from several global manufacturers. The simulation packages, such as M-Robot, TopTurn & TopMill, WorkSpace, give users an important tool to explore design, process, control of automation and production that they want to implement,” says Arthi. Amongst school kids, the simulation software provides a safe and engaging environment and in the vocational technical area, the trainees learn skills that they can apply towards apprenticeships and jobs.
MTAB USA’s portfolio of compact footprint machines can address 80-90 percent of most production requirements for their customer base and are designed with automation in mind. The small footprint machines such as Compact Turn, Compact Mill and Chronomill are designed to lower total cost of ownership, operations and maintenance cost and space requirements for the customer, such as an expanding shop trying to find space to add another machine.
Automation should be modularized to make it easy to adapt, affordable and expandable for the small scale manufacturers
Going forward, MTAB USA plans to increase focus on automation skill development and explore areas of manufacturing such as medical, dental, and jewelry. The company is bringing solutions which will work in different verticals. Chronomill, a versatile horizontal machining center, is a good example, which can be used in medical, dental, jewelry and aerospace component manufacturing.
