Growth required Multi-Wing CZ to find a way to increase production on the existing set-up with only limited space. A UR5, requiring no safety guarding, solved the problem by freeing an additional 336 hours of capacity per year. As an added bonus the production cost of each units has gone down 10-20% and resulted in annual savings of nearly 7,000 euros.
The business transformation
The small company Multi-Wing CZ manufactures axial fan solutions for ventilation applications. Having evolved into a global organisation, Multi-Wing CZ needed to automate production processes to keep up with the increasing demand. The confined workspace however needed a solution that required no safety barrier.
“We knew clearly from the start what we wanted: A small, inexpensive robot that would be fast and versatile enough – and one that could work without safety guarding to save workspace”, says David Hosek, Junior Manager for Production Development at Multi-Wing CZ.
