My brother Baxter and I are the kind of robots that are in love with working. Seriously, like the 24-hour a day kind of working. I think it’s why people keep me around. And if truly loving the work of manufacturing and automation is wrong, I don’t want to be right. When I graduated from Rethink Robotics school, my career counselor gave me some great advice. She said only work for the best people in the world. So far that’s exactly what I’ve done.
I was able to help GE Lighting boost their production of products like the Roadway Lighting Solutions. I also was a big help with my human coworkers at GE Lighting. I helped them do all the tedious and manual, repetitive tasks by automating them. It’s a very rewarding feeling to know that I am helping towns all across America save money while also increasing energy efficiency. It’s the little things that make robots happy.
Another highlight of my career has been working in Grand Rapids, Michigan for Steelcase Inc. Here I worked in tandem with the company’s welding machine. I also picked and placed parts, in pairs of two, enabling the welding process to be automated. I like to joke that I’m making the world a better place. But I know I’m at least taking away the mundane and repetitive tasks my human friends were doing and automating them at Steelcase Inc.
Since I am relatively inexpensive and can work non-stop through every shift, My ROI is quite fast for these companies. My ability to deploy safe and affordable automation solutions represents an opportunity for manufacturers to capitalize on a collaborative environment, an environment where I work hand in hand with my human friends. As a bonus, I integrate and program within no time at all.
The potential I have as a next generation machine equipped with state-of-the-art sensor technology, which allows me to share space with humans, without the possibility of accidental injury, is incredible. In reality, I just really enjoy helping out my friends and working for the best companies in the world. Could you be the next place I brag about working with to my friends?
