A characteristics for the components manufacturing industry is the need for flexibility and quick adjustments of the production - especially for high mix/low volume manufacturing. Customer trends and demands change fast and delivery time is a extremely competitive factor. The ER-FLEX delivers highly flexible logistic automation WITHOUT compromising precision and reliability.
Imagine a robot working the night shift while manufacturing larger batches with less variability. In the daytime human workers take of the more complex tasks, development and smaller batches.
You can have numerous generic pre-programmed logistic workflows for the ER-FLEX and just redefine the exact location of the targets or destinations and the robot will be up and running within a few hours.
To fully utilize the abilities of the robot and make it perform several different tasks the end of arm tool can be exchanged in a few seconds.
The tool changing mechanism can be placed at the front module of the robot or at the work station where the new tool is used.
The multi-tool option makes it possible for the robot to handle an end-to-end production workflow with endless possibilities and combinations.
