The Daktronics awarded project moves the build of LED video display assembly from a system of carts for moving and assembling display sections to a robotic overhead rail system which streamlines productivity and on-time delivery, but also improves quality and safety in the manufacturing process. The implementation of the process spans a 5-year timeframe beginning in 2013 with the final phase to be finished by the end of this year.
