Union City, PA (December 11, 2012) Molded Fiber Glass Union City (MFG Union City), is continuously improving the quality of life for its manufacturing teammates.  Eric Brace our Service Engineering Manager found a way to reduce trim dust in the air in the plant during a recent experiment conducted in our custom made Robotic Trimming System. The fiberglass product is placed in the system, trimmed down to customer’s specification, leaving a pound per part of dust in the work cell.  “We’re trimming up to 24 parts a day, it could be 24 pounds of dust in the air, but we contain it in the cell,” said Brace.  

“Being able to take that much dust out of the facility’s air is a huge benefit to the health of our teammates and the environment.  We have dust collectors all over the place, but being a fiberglass manufacturer you’re going to have a small quantity in the air, trimming on this machine and having the dust collect in the cell is a huge step forward for us,” said Bob Bowles, our Health, Safety and Environment Manager.
