Automation and Robotic Welding with Acieta's John Burg

I am happy to welcome John Burg from Acieta LLC. If you haven’t heard about Acieta they are a 38 year old robot automation integration company located in Council Bluffs, IA, and Waukesha, Wisconsin.

Along with his father, John founded Automated Concepts, Inc., which would eventually grow into Acieta LLC. For nearly 40 years he's devoted most of his time to this passion by helping customers find better ways to manufacture their products, by lowering their part costs and increasing their productivity.

In the pod, we talk about:

  • The greatest challenges for manufacturing in the United States today
  • What steps can manufacturers take to deal with the labor shortage and retain good employees
  • The trends that you are seeing in automated welding?
  • Today's robotic automation includes tools that help get a consistently good part. Are they too complex for a company with no robotic experience?
  • Can robots do all of our welding
  • Are systems getting bigger and more complex, or are they getting leaner and decentralized?
  • What does success look like in automation systems design and build.

If you would like to get in touch with John you can find him here or if you have a conveyance need, and want to get in touch with the staff Acieta, you can find them at
