With today’s ever-challenging travel restrictions and closed borders worldwide, it was necessary for the Guild Service Team to remotely start-up up an extremely advanced, fully automatic welding machine. The Guild team was tasked with looking for new ways to remotely commission this new machine. We utilized remote access, online platforms, emails, and old fashion phone calls to allow this extremely important project to keep moving forward. Having to work long, odd hours, the Guild team was successful in starting up the machine and meet our clients’ deadline. Hard work, determination, and creativity shown by all parties involved made it possible to tackle such a challenging task. The welding machine is fully operational and performing up to Guild’s highest standards.
