Robots working hard at Tiny Tanks
Tidy Tanks is now using robotic welders to build their smaller fuel tanks. The new tanks will be shown at the Pacific Agriculture Show starting Jan. 30
Most farms have some sort of fuel storage tanks onsite, or at the very least in their farm trucks, but few of us think about the technology going into them.
In fact, for many years that technology hasn't changed much, but this year at the Pacific Ag Show you'll see fuel tanks being built by robots.
Okay, not actual robots like in Lost In Space. Ken Nelson says Tidy Tanks has adopted robotic welding in their Langley shop; the same kind of robotic welding you'd see, for example, in an advanced automobile production line.
As well, Tidy Tanks now does powder coat finishing on their tanks, rather than just ordinary paint.
"The result is that we get much better quality, and it's not costing our customers any extra," says Nelson.
