Cobots and transport robots ease pressure on manufacturing staff and boost productivity. Phoenix Mecano uses these technologies in-house and implements them for its customers.
Collaborative robots, or 'cobots', work hand in hand with humans, without the need for protective devices. Phoenix Mecano Komponenten AG uses these innovative solutions at its own production facility in Stein am Rhein, Switzerland. Assembly cobots have up to six joints and can lift loads between 3 and 16 kg. Transport robots are also deployed: they criss-cross the factory, delivering materials and products to a specific assembly or storage location as and when required. They navigate autonomously and can recognise and avoid people and obstacles. Phoenix Mecano Komponenten AG is an official partner for the implementation of cobots manufactured by Universal Robots and transport robots made by Mobile Industrial Robots.
Cobots assist humans with monotonous, tedious and repetitive work and can even relieve them entirely of physically demanding tasks. To ensure seamless collaboration between robots and employees, systems are tailored to the specific needs of customers. Thanks to its experience at its own production facility, Phoenix Mecano Komponenten AG can integrate supporting robot systems into its customers’ workflows effectively and efficiently.
Cobots and transport robots save time and ease pressure on staff, freeing up employees to focus on activities that require human skills. Cobots increase reliability in the production process and reduce assembly effort by up to 40%. Mobile transport robots optimise and automate internal material flows and open up an array of new possibilities in intralogistics. Thanks to their compact dimensions and simple programming, the systems can be configured for new work processes in just a few minutes. This guarantees a high level of utilisation and a quick payback time. What's more, they support paperless operations as accompanying and shipping documents are all electronic and are integrated into operational systems.
