dc.description.abstractKimball Upholstered Products has been actively researching vendors in order to procure a robotic welding cell to reduce the manufacturing costs of its metal EVENT chair frames. Currently, the EVENT chair frames are produced at a remote Kimball International sister company, and Kimball Upholstered Products is interested in producing these frames in their facility where they would have control over the quality and manufacturing process of the welded chair frames. A cost feasibility study has been performed to justify the implementation of a robotic welding cell. The values in all spreadsheets and charts have been removed due to the proprietary and confidential nature of information for Kimball Upholstered Products.
