New robotic etcher moved in with help from friends.
Lever Gear is growing and adding advanced manufacturing to our in-house capabilities with our new robotic etcher. Our founder, Mike Scully, worked with Mecco to design a robot for our needs and recruited our neighbors at Hampton Station to help install the new machinery at Lever Gear Headquarters.
