Robotics and Automation
D&R’s dedication to continuous improvement promotes a culture that seeks a more efficient way to do things. D&R is able to deliver a wide variety of product at competitive pricing due to our commitment to Lean Manufacturing, Robotics, and Automation. In the 1980’s, we designed and implemented a fully integrated MRP system tying all facets of the business together.
In the 1990’s, we began to leverage pallet changers and bar feeders to allow for unmanned lights-out machining. The past decade brought us shop floor CMMs and gantry loaders, which fully automated parts loading in our CNC lathes. In 2010, we introduced our first fully automated robotic machining cell.
Our focus on continuous improvement drives smart investment in the right capital equipment, which ensures that D&R will continue to lead the pack when each new technological era arrives. For our customers, this translates into a secure, value adding, and long term business partner.
