Doubled Production on Limited Floor Space
German audio equipment leader Beyerdynamic aimed at increasing factory floor productivity by 50% on a 4-year plan. This had to be done in the same production space, with the same number of employees, without compromising the brand’s highest quality standards. They were looking for really stable automated processes.
The Robotiq Wrist Camera and 2-Finger Gripper combo, installed on a Universal Robots UR5 model, rapidly became the best option. Beyerdynamic was able to have the robot pick every loudspeaker, regardless of how it was presented, and place it on the jigs to get sprayed with a glue medium.
Products they use
“If there is an issue with the robots, we are able to repair them ourselves and power them back up again. They are really quite easy to handle.”
“We asked if any of the employees were willing to be involved in the pilot project, and have thus been able to establish an excellent cooperation between man and machine.”
“We have the medium applied equally on each speaker, which improves our own quality index by 50%”
“The camera solves the problem every manufacturer in the world has, which is picking up parts that are not in the same position.”
