Citing a growing demand for automation and robotics in manufacturing, Methods Machine Tools Inc. (Sudbury, Massachusetts) is expanding its automation capabilities by launching a new Automation and Integration Center in its Charlotte, North Carolina, facility. The center, slated to open this spring and already ramping up, according to the company, is staffed by systems integration engineers and will offer a range of equipment and capabilities, from customer consultation to building cells and performing run-offs. The 10,000-square-foot facility will expand Methods’ existing automation program and provide systems for customers throughout the United States, the company says.

Mike Kierce, systems integration manager, will be managing the new automation center.

“Manufacturers are increasingly realizing that incorporating automation and robotics are key to their productivity, profitability, and future,” says Bryon Deysher, president and CEO.

Methods has 40 automation engineers in the United States, including design, control, systems integration and field service/installation engineers.
