Robotics Operator



Organization: Ford Motor Company
Location: Claycomo, MO

I am responsible for one of the robotics operation lines. I watch the line and fix any problems that may come up. Sometimes a piece of material will get stuck on the welding robot while at other times the metal parts aren't bent right and the robots aren't able to see the parts and move them through the line. Robots are unpredictable so anything could happen.
