Etalex, a Canadian shelving system manufacturer, needed a flexible robotic arm solution that could be used for multiple tasks while taking up little valuable space on the production floor.
One of the tasks is manually unloading a brake press 8 hours a day. Physically demanding work that also has the potential for accidents.
Etalex were looking to shift some of the more dangerous aspects of their production to robots. By using a UR10 to automate high-risk, repetitive tasks, they could boost safety without cumbersome fencing or space-intensive safety measures. Since its introduction, the UR10 has made the workplace much safer.
