Robotic Battery Stacking

Robotic Battery Stacking

Industry: 
Automotive
Problem: 

Sometimes staffing a plant completely can be a huge challenge, especially in a good economic environment. Openings are difficult to fill, turnovers wreak havoc on scheduling, and keeping good employees becomes more of a challenge. These were the conditions at one of our customers. But now, that’s all in the past, at least in one area of the plant, thanks to a series of 19 robotic material handling cells provided by Custom Machines.

Custom Machines Solution: 

These hard workers don't call in sick, take any vacation days, and will never use their experience to seek another job. These systems have kept up with well over 99% uptime, and have helped to keep production on an even schedule and reduced overtime costs. In fact, these cells have reduced costs so much that they achieved their payoff mark in two years. Just as important, they did not have to lay off any employees. All of the employees they previously had doing this work were retrained for new positions. They were used more efficiently in other operations in the plant, making the workers feel better about the jobs they were doing

Installation Benefits: 
  • 30 day ROI
  • 400% reduction is scrap rates
  • Increased production rates
  • Reduced packaging times
  • Faster product changeover times
  • Low training expenses because of the robot software's ease of use
Previous Robot Usage Experience: 

This was the first robot installation at this plant. Its success paved the way for more applications.
