What Does A Senior Robotic Technician Do?

IKONICS AMS uses Precision Abrasive Machining to produce holes, slots and patterns in composite materials using aluminum oxide grit. As the Senior Robotic Technician, Matt programs and operates the robot that creates these perforation patterns. “People think robots are taking over all these jobs,” stated Matt. “Robots only do what someone tells them to do, so there are always highly trained humans behind robot production.”
