Robots work alongside people to eliminate wastage in power tool assembly
Power tool manufacturer, RUPES, made a bold commitment to eliminating defects and waste on its production line, whilst improving the working conditions of its excellent workforce. Here's how it deployed UR robots to collaborate with its human workers, and supercharge its levels of production.
UR10 at the center of the 4.0 industrialization process, reducing changeovers by 50%
The multinational Continental is a good example of the transition taking place in the industry; as a leading company in the automotive sector, Continental is by far the most robotized Spanish manufacturer in the business and the first to pioneer the move towards industry 4.0. In 2016, the company decided to acquire several UR10 cobots to automate the manufacture and handling of PCB boards, bringing down changeover times by 50%, from 40 to 20 minutes when compared to performing the task manually.
Why the World’s Third Largest Motorcycle Manufacturer Opted for Universal Robots.
As the first Indian company to implement the use of collaborative robots in automotive assembly lines in 2010, Bajaj Auto Ltd. today has more than 100 cobots driving its position as the world’s 3rd largest motorcycle manufacturer. It sold over 3.3 million vehicles in 2015.
UR3 and UR5 Cobots create 24/7 automated manufacturing
TCI opted for two of Universal Robots industrial robotic arms, the UR3 and UR5, to perform labelling and assembly tasks, with technicians from Design Energy Assiting in the initiaql programming of the cobots so each was operating to TCI’s exact requirements.
Mobile robot colleagues on wheels increase productivity and worker safety at Scott Fetzer Electrical Group
A mobile fleet of Universal Robots now receives daily work orders to solve ever-changing tasks with high mix - low volume electronics manufacturer Scott Fetzer Electrical Group (SFEG) in Tennessee. The collaborative robots have optimized production by 20 percent, taking over monotonous and potentially hazardous tasks from employees now reallocated to more rewarding jobs.
Universal Robots: Come for the Safety, Stay for the Ease of Use
Recently, I had someone ask why Universal Robots and Rethink Robotics have made such an impact on the automation market. For those that have direct experience with the challenges of implementing industrial automation, the response would most certainly be the prospect of being able to use a robot without any external safety measures such as hard guarding or light curtains. While this is certainly a game change there is another more tangible aspect that these companies have brought to the market. Ease of use.
