Technology solutions for WNY manufacturers.
Innovative technology levels the playing field for small to medium-sized manufacturers. It enables them to increase throughput, improve quality, and operate more efficiently. However, in a world where time is a capital expenditure few can afford, accessing and implementing that innovation can seem like an insurmountable barrier.
Shift 2.0, a program of Buffalo Manufacturing Works, removes obstacles allowing manufacturers to make the most of their limited resources. It’s an accessible and essential first step for those who don’t know how or where to start the process of identifying and investing in achievable and implementable technology. The program’s purpose is to tailor solutions to help them utilize innovative technology to reach their goals.
Shift 2.0 provides tailored, achievable, and implementable technology solutions that help small to medium-sized manufacturers connect the dots between innovation and implementation. To help Shift 2.0 participants reach the finish line, we provide engineering support on certain implementation projects including, but not limited to:
- Automation site assessment
- Concept development
- Detailed system design
- Proof of concept demonstrations
- System build and test
- Engineer and operator training
- Post-installation support
