At Koops, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our products, and it is with that goal in mind that we are excited to tell you about the latest addition to our Machining Department; the Computer Numerical Control Lathe – or CNC Lathe for short.
As you know, a lathe removes material by rotating a workpiece on a single axis of rotation. When controlled by a person, operating a lathe can take a good amount of time and is open to human error, creating lost manhours as well as possibly unusable pieces. We can program a sequence through the CNC Lathe that is then carried out to perfection every time, giving us maximum accuracy with minimal downtime. With the CNC Lathe's ability to sequence multiple actions, as well as its automatic tool presetter and spindle coolant system, we are able to produce high-quality parts at a rapid pace with little need for operator input.
This higher level of precision allows us to create the parts you require at a higher level of accuracy than ever before, and with a faster turnaround time. The CNC Lathe also gives us the ability to machine hardened steel components in-house, saving us the time and money that would have been lost with outsourcing the work.
All of this builds into the three promises we at Koops make to you:
Rock Solid Engineering Solutions
- The CNC Lathe improves the quality of the parts we offer
- The CNC Lathe cuts down on the time it will take to build the parts you need
- The CNC Lathe can create parts that far more accurate than a human hand could
Reliable Project Management
- The CNC Lathe allows us to create hardened steel components in-house
- The CNC Lathe increases efficiency and cuts down on labor costs
Excellent Customer Support
- The CNC Lathe gives us a new way to better meet your needs
We hope that you can see the added benefits of the CNC Lathe. Our Machining Department has always been focused on producing high-quality components at a low cost, and the capabilities of the CNC Lathe helps us achieve this goal better than ever before.
If you have any questions about the CNC Lathe or any of our other tools and capabilities, please contact our sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org[:]
We all know that people are vital to a manufacturing operation, but robots can also help in many ways. Human safety is the highest priority and integrating robots with safety features is a great way to stay competitive and create more jobs. Robots are here to rescue workers from manual labor and dangerous work conditions. They can do the dangerous and strenuous work that could cause employees harm or injury. In turn, they will help to make manufacturing companies leaner, more profitable, more consistent, and more competitive.
Robots are being implemented into business to work alongside employees. They take the work that is dangerous, unhealthy, strenuous, simple repetitive, and monotonous. They can be used to do heavy lifting and do the work that needs to be done in dangerous environment and hazardous locations that could injure and harm employees. This allows manufacturing companies to utilize their employees to do bigger and better things. Instead of performing dangerous tasks, workers are now performing more complex, more challenging, greater value-add work.
Are you looking to add robots or automation to your manufacturing company? At Koops, we specialize in factory automation systems, and design and build innovative machines and equipment for world-class manufacturers across a broad array of industries. Our services include 3D mechanical design, electrical/controls design, project management, production line integration, service and support.

For the past two decades, companies have been turning to manufacturing data analytics to improve the production and output of their factory automation. With this research method, mathematical and statistical data is analyzed to determine the causes of poor yield or inconsistent performance. Information can also highlight specific areas that need improvements and offer solutions to problems. More than ever, companies have the ability to measure increasingly specific or targeted variables in the manufacturing process, from overall operations to the shop floor, and can react accordingly to make needed changes or to prevent problems.
Manufacturing data analytics gives companies the ability to compile a deep history of their production process. Analysis of data can reveal that one aspect of their factory process or one aspect of their management procedure is slowing production or decreasing the quality of their product. With data analytics, measuring compliance and traceability is much more specific than previously possible. Problems can be diagnosed at the machine level. Making one simple change may make all the difference in improving the factory's efficiency.
Knowledge is Power
In other instances, data analytics might not reveal an encompassing solution to optimize the efficiency of a factory automation process. Maybe the process is already working well and does not need to be changed. However, having the information can still offer a better understanding of each phase and the relationships between steps. An enhanced understanding of all of the nuances associated with production will come in handy if any problems arise. Quick action is possible with access to the right information.
Big data can also be used to accurately forecast a products’ supply and demand. This is useful in two ways. To start, with better forecasts about supply and demand, management is able to set production goals in advance to maximize efficiency. For example, some manufacturers keep production lines running 24 hours a day. If management had a better idea of what time of year the demand decreases, then the company could alter practices to meet demand without wasting resources. Secondly, with more accurate supply and demand predictions, clients are more likely to get the product they want when they want it. Big data can enhance customer service experiences with a company.
A company may use targeted data aggregated by a cloud-based provider or other service provider. Koops can provide data-driven services to its factory automation clients. We analyze a client's production process, help develop specifications using 3D CAD and FEA capabilities, manage all aspects of the project as needed, and provides tailored solutions to the client's needs, including equipment installation, and on-site support.
