  • Automate simple, repetitive tasks without detracting from quality

  • Stay flexible enough to change processes as needed


  • Improved flexibility

  • Higher profits

  • Increased employee satisfaction



Last Arrow Manufacturing, an Ohio-based contract manufacturer, needed a flexible automated solution to take on simple and repetitive welding projects to free up their skilled welders to do jobs that required more expertise. After trying a variety of automation options, they chose the FANUC CRX welding cobot and haven’t looked back.

Since implementing cobots, Last Arrow has experienced a very quick uptick in business, increased productivity, a high level of employee satisfaction, improved flexibility, and higher profits.

It’s the easiest programming I’ve ever done, and I’ve got over 20 years of experience in robotic programming. This is the most user-friendly tablet I’ve ever used.

We’ve never really had a solution for our type of business, and our type of business has constant changeover. We don’t have high production parts, and we need the ability to consistently change our process here and be flexible in what we do.
