The program demonstrates this broad commitment to quality reaching from the corporate philosophy to the shop floor.

    Robotics and Automation (MCL-907)
    Genesis Systems Group was contracted by American Axle & Manufacturing to engineer, design, and build a new robotic welding system to manufacture its axle assemblies. After verifying the capability to produce simple components, Genesis and American Axle decided to avoid a line-type of system and instead develop a system which would de-couple the assembly process. The end result was a system that performed above specifications, while achieving the optimum balance of speed and quality.
