Increasing cost pressure from Asia is pushing intelligent automation solutions further into the foreground for European manufacturers. The use of autonomous and mobile robots increases their own productivity and secures their own competitiveness.
Automation solutions in production are already established. AGV systems take over a large part of the material transport. The last hurdle to the end-to-end solution is material flow automation up to the production line.
Especially in electronics production, where high precision and flexibility are required, autonomous KLT robots offer numerous advantages. From easy connection to different types of machines thanks to flexible gripping technology to increased efficiency and throughput times.
High labor costs
Process optimization and investments in automation continue to be the answers to rising labor costs. This will ensure the company’s profitability in the future.
Demographic change is exacerbating the shortage of skilled workers. Production processes that require a wide range of skills and qualifications are particularly affected.
In shift work, the physical stresses quickly add up. This is an essential factor for employee satisfaction. Material automation parallel to humans offers a remedy here.
Flexible working and production models require a great deal of planning. Intelligent automation offers the necessary flexibility. For example, for shift operations, waves of illness or the introduction of new products.
