Better than two separate robot systems.
The Andrénverken works has established long-term relationships with its customers and it aims to develop these partnerships. The company is expanding in line with its customers and is in need of increasing its volume and capacity. A solution was sought that needed to be operationally reliable and provide uninterrupted production while at the same time having a consistently high level of quality. The aim was also to get up and running without any delays or problematic commissioning.
The Andrénverken works has had four welding robots from Yaskawa in production previously. Whilst conferring with Yaskawa, ArcWorld was presented as a version with two welding robots. The Andrénverken works estimated that the capacity of one station and two robots would yield almost as much as two separate workstations. The new facility featuring ArcWorld was installed in January 2017. The installation ran quickly and smoothly, and production started after just one week.
Capacity rose above expectations. The Andrénverken works is also very satisfied with the delivery from Yaskawa. The company has listened to the customer and delivered a turnkey solution, with good training, which could be installed without any problems or any need for adjustments. Everything worked well and there were no breakdowns or downtime.
The benefits gained from ArcWorld are that it is compact, easy to install and easy to move. ”Good project management from Yaskawa ensured an installation process without any unexpected surprises. Everything worked out perfectly,” says Fredrik Stensson and Christer Haraldsson, owners of Andrénverken AB.
