A big push and a large growth is going on in welding because of the lack of skilled welders. So, anything we can do to make welding easier for the customer is a big bonus. Having the ability to do one-off programming or very low-volume, high-mix programming allows to automate projects that were never automatable in the past. Those customers were not candidates for the robotic weld; now, it is a brand new market for us. It opens up new doors.
