Matritech is committed to serving its customers with state-of-the-art technology. Since it was founded back in 1989, the Drummondville, Que.-based metal parts manufacturer has invested more than $15 million in fixed assets, including robotic bending and welding cells.
Matritech first introduced robotic welding to its plant floor in 2003, and today has a total of three welding robots. These multi-axle welding robots, combined with the company’s pulsed arc welding technology, produce complex welding assemblies with impeccable precision, and consistent repeatability and quality.
In 2014, the company acquired a robotic bending cell, the first machine of its kind in Canada. The Trumpf TruBend Cell 7000 has enabled Matritech to grow its production capacity by increasing the quality of parts manufactured, and allowing clients to alternate between high-volume stamping runs and standard bending short-runs, giving them incredible flexibility. The cell features two gripping arms, which allow the robot to take pieces laid flat, analyze them, complete the bending operations and place them on an automated conveyor without human intervention. The result is increased manufacturing speed, reduced setup times, and the capability to manufacture complex parts.
With these robotic capabilities, the company also has the staff qualified to program the robots. These programmers have the expertise to maximize operations while assuring that the highest quality standards are always upheld. This, combined with the company’s commitment to efficient and courteous customer service and technical support, has earned Matritech a reputation as a leading metal parts manufacturer dedicated to excellence.
