TRUCK STEERING / SUCCESS CASE / 481-01-Pumps Assy line

Challenge

Replicating human senses using robots and vision through an insertion process requiring the utmost precision and tolerance.

HOW DID WE DO IT?

By solving the challenge of inserting pallets into their spots inside the rotor. After recognizing this area as being crucial, we used agile methods to develop and validate it quickly.

  • We set up a multidisciplinary team for the day-to-day running of the project and, at the same time, a separate dedicated team working in partnership with a robotics manufacturer to develop the solution.
  • Building a prototype focused on MVP (minimum viable product) allowed us to validate the crucial part as soon as possible without affecting the key design stage of the project.
  • Introducing force limit monitoring for insertion.

Thanks to faultless management, we left the project operating at the customer’s facilities and delivered great value for their processes: cycle time is down 30%, OEE is up, and human-caused variability is down.
