Wesgar’s latest cutting-edge welding collaborative robotic unit, TruArc Weld 1000, is now fully operational in the company’s 100,000 square foot facility in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia. This unit will further enhance Wesgar’s ability to respond to its customers’ needs for shorter lead times and/or handle short-term surges in demand without sacrificing quality. This high-performance welding robot is versatile, shifting between multiple welding jobs with ease and speed, aligning with Wesgar’s commitment to the delivery of quality products on time, every time to its clients.
