The GeKu designed cell has had a most significant effect. It is very compact and highly effieient. Interfacing to the Frech Diecasting machine was a relatively simple task – the GeKu engineers have a wealth of experience with both Frech & ABB machines.
The Geku designed system and its ABB robot have helped us to become ultra competitive. I am so impressed with the cell that we will install a second by the end of the year and full ‘ lights out operation’ will follow.
We are always aiming for the ‘best in class’ manufacturing techniques due to the specialised processes we engineer and perform within our factory. We have numerous applications that require attention to detail such as the specialised embedding of reinforcing mesh on to the back of the dashboard mouldings, and the accuracy of depth of our laser perforation for air bag safety release. This is why investment in the latest technology is paramount to be able to meet our customers’ expectations and robot automation has undoubtedly played a significant part in helping us to meet their requirements.
