Aroplax Hosts FIRST Robotics Team

On March 7, 2019, Aroplax hosted the Monticello High School FIRST Robotics Team for a site tour and hands-on robotics demonstration. Approximately 15 students and the team coach attended. Aroplax is a proud sponsor of the team and wanted to help students learn how robots are used in a real-world manufacturing setting. Students were given an overview of the company and injection molding and then spent time on the manufacturing floor, specifically learning how robots are used to improve safety, efficiency, consistency, and productivity. Thomas Schoen, Aroplax Operations Director, stated: “We were thrilled to support and interact with the students. They asked great questions and were very interested in how the robots are programmed to do particular tasks. We wish the team the best of luck in their FIRST Robotics competitions!”
