Here is a great example of a steel welded assembly at Lean Machine. It's a steel ring with a strengthening rib welded on. As the demand for this part has increased we've applied our standard thinking: if an employee is going to do the same repetitive task over and over (and most likely get extremely tired of doing so) then we need to find a better way to accomplish the task. Our Motoman/Fronius robotic welding cell is always happy to help us automate.
Step 4 - Run off parts as quickly as possible!
