What innovation!! I toured Lowell two weeks ago and could not have been more impressed with your other examples of innovation, namely the robotics utilized in the QA lab and in the laser marking area. We are going to be installing our own hi-definition cameras in our QA lab soon. I’ve copied my QA faculty for them to enjoy your video.
