Video: Automated Welding Whips Up AMD Panels

Manufacturing has come a long way in the fifty years since much of our Mopar muscle was made. While skilled labor might always be king, robots are becoming more and more prevalent in the factory workplace. Man versus machine aside, many a good thing have come from the cold, corded coworker as it relates to consistent quality, cost-effectiveness, and product throughput.

Auto Metal Direct (AMD) works hard to maintain an incredibly high level of superior manufacturing in their parts with both quality people and quality processes, as evidenced in a recent video outlining the robotic assembly of a hood structure. Precision fixturing and repeatable robot movements make for an accurate product every time.

Each spot weld is placed in the exact same spot at the exact same weld settings to make absolutely sure that all of the time spent reverse engineering a factory-correct panel doesn’t go to waste. The way the turntables, conveyor, and robot welders work together is quite the concert of synchronized sheet metal melding.

It’s easy to see why companies like Classic Muscle Metal (CMM) have aligned themselves with AMD’s tireless effort to provide the muscle car faithful with proper-fitting parts and minimal fuss. Not only can CMM get you hooked up with the AMD parts you need, but they can also give you tips on how to install them. Or they can put you in contact with the AMD Installation Center for the highly experienced sheet metal installation your muscle deserves. Give them a call today at (844) 275-9254.

Kent grew up in the shop with his old man and his '70 Charger R/T. His first car was a 1969 Super Bee project when Kent was fourteen. That restoration experience lead to pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a career in manufacturing. Since then, the garage has expanded to include a '67 Satellite, a '72 Scamp, and a 2010 Mopar '10 Challenger.
