Major Mining Equipment Manufacturer Increases Productivity  
Lincoln Electric Developed Custom Automated Robotic Welding Solution for Bit Block Assembly at Joy Mining’s Franklin, PA, Plant

In today’s highly competitive industrial manufacturing environment, it’s crucial to run a cost efficient, reliable and productive fabrication line that yields durable, rugged, high-quality products.

At Joy Mining Machinery, a global leader in the development, manufacture, distribution and service of underground mining machinery for more than 90 years, the desire to continue to achieve this goal drove the company to upgrade the welding equipment at its Franklin, Pennsylvania, facility.
