1000th Production Robotic Welding System Delivered to East Manufacturing

Posted by OTC DAIHEN on October 27, 2022

OTC DAIHEN and distributor partner Airgas are proud to have delivered the 1000th production robotic welding system — a SERVO-ARC 720B turntable robot welder – to East Manufacturing.

“The completion of our 1,000th pre-engineered welding system represents 20 years of advancing robotic welding solutions by the OTC DAIHEN, Inc. team,” says Todd Griffieth, General Manager of Technical Operations with OTC DAIHEN. “Our goal of automating the metal fabrication operations of our North American customers would not have achieved this success without the focused efforts and technical strengths of our Advanced Welding Partners like Airgas.”

This system was sold by Platinum-level Advanced Welding Partner, the Great Lakes region of Airgas, an Air Liquide company. Airgas® is a leading U.S. supplier of industrial, medical and specialty gases, as well as hard goods and related products.

“We’re proud to provide customers with support to find the best automation fit for their needs,” says Nathan Moyer, Great Lakes Region Automation Sales Manager at Airgas. “We are excited to see how this 1000th milestone and future units will help our customers continuously improve their productivity and bring on new, efficient ways to get the job done.”

The milestone comes in the fall of 2022, shortly after OTC DAIHEN expanded its operations in Tipp City, Ohio.

“With our recently expanded manufacturing assembly capacity and increased product and consumable inventory here in Ohio, we are further committed to growing our arc-welding automation solutions for all metal fabricators seeking the advantages of our exclusive welding technology,” Griffieth says.

Headquartered in Randolph, Ohio, East has provided innovative standard and custom trailer products that deliver superior performance, strength and flexibility for 50 years through its network of over 70 trailer dealer locations.
