Close the Skills Gap with In-House Robotics Expertise


Assa Abloy Romania assembles locks, which are then sent to other Assa Abloy factories worldwide, where they’re transformed into finished products. The factory suffered from a huge skills gap in Bucharest, the country’s capital city, where the unemployment rate is low. Difficulties to attract new workers to manufacturing forced an automation revolution.


In-house robotics expertise was built around a group of engineers and technicians in charge of automating processes with new technologies. The team chose the Robotiq 2-Finger Adaptive Gripper and Wrist Camera to pair a Universal Robots UR5 for a machine tending process. Two parts are positioned by the robot on a fixture and then welded by the machine.
