Portas Euro-Rapid Doubles Machine Tending Capacity with 2F-140 Adaptive Grippers
Portas Euro-Rapid manufactures fittings and couplings to join pipes together. Mechanical flaws slowed machine operations, causing a lot of downtime with limited personnel available to fix issues.
Integrating Robotiq 2F-140 Adaptive Grippers and Universal Robots UR10 to each machine allowed each employee to take care of three machines. Now their machines run full-time and production capacity has doubled.

“the training was at the user level. It wasn’t complicated: you just go step by step and soon you’ve learned the whole thing pretty quickly.”
