Increase Quality Testing Numbers
Sennheiser Manufacturing USA produces professional audio equipment, which involves assembling thousands of different PCBs. Their meticulous process of manual PCB testing became a bottleneck on the production floor.
Sennheiser used Robotiq’s 2F-85 Adaptive Gripper to handle 115 different PCBs and saw a 33% increase in the number of units tested. They also used Robotiq Insights to track daily production metrics, and the resulting data helped justify adding a second Universal Robots cobot in summer 2019.
Products they use
“The cobots are fast, but I can keep up—and it’s great how much we’ve increased our numbers.”
“I use Insights to communicate information to non-engineering people, because I can just point to the dashboard and explain what’s going on.”
“I get daily reports of his tests and receive all alerts if the robot stops. So if there’s a problem, we’re able to attack it very quickly.”
“Robotiq had a unique solution: a reliable gripper that can manage part changeovers quickly, which was important for our high-mix, high-volume production.”
