Automation Solution

Braun Machinery takes immense pride in being a distinguished distributor of both Hurco and ProCobots within the Michigan region.

Why Automate?

As the skills gap continues and labor shortages mount, automation allows shops to maximize the contribution of their existing employees, increase productivity, and increase machine utilization. While traditional automation focused on mass production manufacturing, Hurco customers require automation that is flexible enough for high-mix manufacturing.

Why Hurco Developed Automation for High-Mix Manufacturing

Hurco’s mission is to help customers be more productive and profitable by delivering manufacturing technologies that make sense for high-mix manufacturing. After they interviewed customers, did  research, and vetted automation partners, Hurco developed Practical Job Shop Automation to eliminate the problems job shops had experienced with automation—inflexibility, complex integrations, complicated robot programming.

How Practical Job Shop Automation Helps Hurco Customers

The key advantage of Hurco’s automation for high-mix manufacturing is the complete integration of the robot into the Hurco control. This control integration gives our customers complete control over their automation—quick changeover (less than 5 minutes), flexibility (ability to move the robot to another Hurco machine), quick installation, and no robot programming (everything is done on the Hurco control’s Automation Job Manager feature).

If you can program a Hurco, you can program the robot.
