    Chair? Just give me 5 minutes to print you one

      The traditional production line has been around for a few generations now. We face significant labor issues in the United States, China, and... just about everywhere.

It is rapidly becoming a part of our world. We'll explore its impact in coming blogs, but for now let's just imagine how it can benefit our industry.

    Roadmap to Automation - what we can learn from it

    Driverless cars = the opportunity to overcome our industry's driver labor issue.  It sounds perfect. That is the vision and the opportunity.  Of course, there are some concerns with getting the furniture off the truck and properly set up in the customer's home.
