KMT Robotic Solutions is rebranding itself as Dynamic Robotic Solutions, and the Auburn Hills-based company has some big plans for growth over the next few years.
“Our goal is to double in size over the next 3-5 years,” says Dick Johnson, director of business development and marketing for Dynamic Robotic Solutions.
The 29-year-old company has made a name for itself in robotic trimming with more than 1,500 of its systems installed around the world. Dynamic Robotic Solutions more specifically works with water jet cutting. So while the water coming out of a faucet may clock in at 20-25 psi, the water Dynamic Robotic Solutions’s robots use spits out at 65,000 psi. That’s strong enough to take the flesh off your finger.
“If you add in a little bit of sand into the stream you can cut two-inch steel,” Johnson says.
Robotic cutting is often used in manufacturing, such as cutting the roof liners in cars, carpet for automotive floor mats, and plastic in instrument panels.
The company had its best year in 2012 in regard to revenue growth and is on track to have another strong year. It has hired five people over the last year, expanding its staff to 60 employees. It’s also looking to hire a handful of people in software engineering and sales.
