As a Diamond Partner Systems Integrator, Absolute will have access to 1) a software portal to stay up-to-date on demonstrations and proof of concepts; 2) a systems integrator locator to showcase Absolute directly to customers; 3) a hardware demonstration system; 4) a complete software suite for PLC, motion, HMI, VFD, and robots with automatic updates; and 5) a support team for product training and technical resources.
Absolute’s past and current work with Mitsubishi played a role in Absolute becoming qualified for Diamond Partner status. Absolute has partnered with Mitsubishi Electric Automation to create and build the LoadMate Plus, a machine-tending robotic cell designed to add automation to CNC applications. “Our ongoing contribution to Mitsubishi projects as well as our current and past automation projects were part of our qualifications,” said Courtney Ortner, Absolute’s director of marketing and the A+ automation team.
Ortner created the A+ automation team in response to the growing need for automation and to help manufacturers find the best solutions to meet their production requirements. “COVID-19 pushed manufacturers to think even more seriously about automating their processes to remain competitive in an ever-evolving global economy and to fill the voids left by the virus and the lack of skilled labor,” she said.
Mitsubishi took the development of Absolute’s A+ automation team into consideration when deciding whether to give Absolute status as a Diamond Partner.
About Absolute’s new status, Ortner said: “This achievement is just one more step in giving our customers the broader choices for automation. Being a Mitsubishi Diamond Partner means that Absolute can offer the most complete lines of automation products and solutions to the metal-cutting industry.”
