KUKA Robotics Selected To Provide 7-Axis Robot

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—March 22, 2006— KUKA Robotics Corporation, a leading global manufacturer of industrial robots, today announced it has been selected by C.M.H. Manufacturing of Lubbock, Texas to provide 7 axis robot for aluminum ladling applications. The 6-axis KUKA robot is fitted with an end of arm tool to create a 7 axis ladling robot to be used for pouring molten metal. The robot's 7th axis gives it an additional 360 degrees of rotation allowing it to pour the molten metal consistently and then clean the ladle of leftover oxide waste by inverting the ladle to remove the waste.

"C.H.M. is helping manufacturers around the world with high yield high throughput casting automation, and the servo controlled ladle is the latest of their innovations," said Joe Campbell, director of strategic alliances for KUKA Robotics Corporation.

"When we needed a 7-axis robot to solve this waste issue we immediately chose KUKA robots for their reliability, flexibility and performance," said John Hall, president of C.M.H. Manufacturing.

The aluminum ladling application's 7th axis resolves aluminum casting manufacturers serious issue with part integrity. Without the 7th axis oxide debris continues to build and be re-introduced into the molten metal. With the additional rotation capabilities the metal composition remains pure and part integrity is not compromised.

C.M.H. Manufacturing Co. is a family owned business located in Lubbock, Texas and was founded in 1982 by Charles M. Hall. C.M.H. produces the HALL line of foundry equipment with special emphasis on aluminum tilt pour gravity die-casting. C.M.H. offers a full line for casting machines, rotary tables and peripheral work cell support equipment designed around the tilt pour principle. The company uses the latest in CNC machining and computer aided engineering to meet its customer's needs. For more information contact C.M.H. Manufacturing at 806-744-8003 or visit their website www.cmhmfg.com.
