During the consultation, FME Feinmechanik AG was recommended the Universal Robots solution. A stationary and automated system that can guarantee efficient and uninterrupted production of a high standard. In the solution, a UR5 robot can operate two opposing machines, while a UR10 robot is used for feeding. It positions the next component following a signal from the UR5 robot.
The managing director, Marco Bortolan, is very convinced by this solution: "The robot arms from Universal Robots have far exceeded my expectations. The combination of flexibility and ease of programming, as well as the fact that the robots can work directly with my employees without a space-consuming protective housing, were decisive factors that convinced me to invest in this technology and introduce the corresponding changes in our company. Thanks to this success and our positive experience, I can well imagine using more robots in the future."
According to Marco Bortolan, there is usually a preconception that robots threaten jobs. This was not the case at FME Feinmechanik AG. The team even had to be expanded, as productivity could be increased.
