Keep Humans from Zero Value-Add in Quality Testing
Everyday, Continental Automotive Spain looks to improve their factory’s productivity to be competitive in the automotive world. In their switch to Industry 4.0 philosophy, they are looking for automation solutions that will prevent employees from doing no added-value tasks in the quality testing process.
Collaborative robots were integrated to be the central part of the quality testing line. They move parts from one station to the next while employees focus on added-value tasks. Since all the programming is in the robot, the workers can reprogram everything in-house without any third party.
Products they use
“The integration of collaborative robots was so much easier than the previous ones we had. We do not need much sensors around the equipment. It is really efficient. I saw immediately the advantages, easy integration, zero maintenance, higher productivity. Our changeover time is twice faster now.”
“I accepted the challenge even though I had no experience in robotics. With the help of the distributors and some training, within a few weeks I was able to understand the basics of the robot and start programming for the end solution of the application.”
