Husco moves forward with Epson robots
Husco is a family owned, privately held, $500 million manufacturer of hydraulic and electro-mechanical control systems for a wide range of vehicles and commercial systems. Its Husco Automotive division builds control valves, fuel injection systems, solenoids, turbochargers, and EV systems for leading manufacturers of cars and trucks.
Husco was challenged with building a high-speed line to assemble a new automotive solenoid device, while simultaneously achieving process improvements for an established control valve line. Output requirements would be more than two million parts annually for the new process and more than four million for the one to be improved. The use of Epson SCARA and 6-Axis robots increased throughput and minimized downtime, building on Husco’s nearly 15-year experience with Epson robotic technology.
