Gern Glas is one of Scandinavia’s largest suppliers of plane glass and mirrors for the furniture, kitchen, building and solar industries. To secure the position as a competitive manufacturer robot technology was implemented on the production line. As a result, the high energy using glass tempering process has been optimised and workers have been relieved from some of the monotonous tasks.
If suppliers in other countries can do something slightly cheaper, there is a risk that high-volume orders go abroad. This is a fact, too, for Danish pane glass and mirror manufacturer Gern Glas. In order to make the best possible use of capacity and stay competitive the company decided to invest in robot technology.
