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, one UR5 robot can serve two opposing machines, while one UR10 robot is used for feeding. It positions the next component according to a signal from the UR5 robot.
The Managing Director, Marco Bortolan, is very convinced of this solution: “The robot arms from Universal Robots have far exceeded my expectations. The combination of flexibility and easy programming, as well as the fact that the robots can work directly with my employees without a space-consuming protective enclosure, were decisive factors that convinced me to invest in this technology and to introduce the corresponding changes in our company. Thanks to this success and our positive experience, I can well imagine using even more robots in the future”.
According to Marco Bortolan, there is usually a prejudice that robots threaten jobs. This was not the case at FME Feinmechanik AG. In fact, the team had to be enlarged, as productivity could be increased.
