Triangle's use of automation and robotics has evolved into cost-savings for the HVAC industry. One of the leading manufacturers of motor mounting brackets, Triangle, has expanded its fastening options from welding to include crimping.

Welding is costly, slow and dangerous when done by hand; as most manufacturers can attest. Triangle's automated process currently allows for fast, strong crimping of components without any delay or danger to a production worker.

Crimping provides cost saving benefits along with a stronger, more sturdy design. Triangle's internal testing showed crimped components held up to exceedingly high stress, with the steel bending before the joints showed any wear. The crimped products also have a cleaner appearance without visible welds.
