BRAMPTON, ON. Technical and Automation Help Corp (TAH), a Brampton based automation technology company has entered into a historic Collaborative Research Agreement with Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning. The project is leveraging funding to Sheridan from the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev) Regional Innovation Ecosystems (RIE) program, through the Southern Ontario Network for Advanced Manufacturing Innovation (SONAMI) which supports the advancement of manufacturing technologies in Southern Ontario. TAH and the Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design Technologies (CAMDT) at Sheridan College will begin the collaboration with a one year applied research project.

The collaborative partnership between TAH, ABB Canada, Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design Technologies (CAMDT), ACBN Canada and Linde Canada Inc. seeks to advance the High-Speed Robotic Cladding (HSRC) system to improve the automated cladding processes, with the goal to integrate a robotic welding system with pre-set parameters and cladding techniques. These parameters are unique and specific to each type of cladding required. Metallic cladding on steel parts prolongs the integrity of the steel, and the HSRC system enables an even longer part life and reduces the overhead cost associated with cladding. This substantial improvement is the reason the new technology is expected to disrupt the cladding manufacturing industry upon implementation.

The TAH collaboration with CAMDT will comprise a build and integration of the HSRC system, followed by the critical incorporation of the data parameters. Through the contributions of Sheridan subject matter experts working with TAH, data communication such as the parameters and patterns in the system, which are proprietary to TAH's technology, will be secured. The systems will allow wired and wireless communication capability along with layers of security around the robots, and welding controllers to protect information from compromise during data transfer from a remote location and local storage. "We are looking forward to collaborating on this multifaceted, interdisciplinary project to move High-Speed Robotic Cladding forward, which will combine portions of robotic integration, system programing and industrial cybersecurity carried out by one team" says Dr. Carolyn Moorlag, Director of CAMDT.

Because clad welding technology has not experienced disruptive innovation, the welding rates, cladding rates, and productivity rates have not increased since their inception in the early 1960's, yet production and labour costs have continued to rise. TAH's High-Speed Robotic Cladding system improves the cladding speeds and productivity through automation. For example, the typical welding rate (how fast one can attach the welding wire to the material) is five inches per hour. However, with TAH's new technology, welding rates can increase to 37 inches per hour. Increased production capacity and reduced costs means that companies previously unable to access cladding technology due to its prohibitive cost, will now have a chance to participate, compete and use the technology.

This partnership is important because TAH Founder and CEO, Tennyson Harris, originally from Barbados, had a specific lens in mind when engaging with Sheridan College to advance his technology. It is a primary goal of the project to ensure that students working on it are representative of the larger community and that recruitment efforts encourage participation from Black, Indigenous, racialized and women students. Sheridan is highly supportive of this goal, which directly aligns with Sheridan's commitment to the Dimensions Charter: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Canada and its broader institutional commitments to advancing equity, diversity and inclusion and to building inclusive communities. Persons from those communities, interested in advanced robotics, skilled trades, and industrial programing, are encouraged to apply. Tennyson Harris says, "Our worldwide patent allows us to have a foothold in global markets. We're in the process of digitizing new systems, and we are in discussions with several large manufacturers in Canada and the US to adopt this technology. It is important to us at TAH that Black, Indigenous and People of Color communities be a part of this revolution and have access to advanced robotic learning and production."

TAH is in business to commercialize High-Speed Robotic Cladding. Commercialization entails integrating sophisticated innovation into the mines, pipelines, foundries and platforms where welding is a primary activity and where low-alloy steel is or can be used. In keeping with these goals to reach the public, TAH is integrating the innovation into a Customize Unit to introduce to new customers. At this stage, TAH will use the Unit to assist in converting High-Speed Robotic Cladding into a revenue-generating innovation.
