Consistent use of automation ensures quality and productivity

Even when producing simple parts, the use of robots and automation pays off. Automation allows for short cycle times and highest process reliability which makes for low costs, which in turn leads to a quick return on investment, especially in mass production. This is impressively demonstrated by the German Busch-Jaeger company, which specializes in plastic parts for electrical installations.

Stäubli, France - IFR Partner

Robot instead of special purpose machine

If a company that specializes in manufacturing customized machinery goes for an alternative solution, then it will have a valid reason - in this case, the Stäubli RX170 hsm. This innovative milling robot working away within a cell supplied by plant manufacturer Riexinger ensures abundant flexibility in the complete machining of large plastic parts. The five-axis robot also scores in terms of maximum availability and short cycle times.

Reliable mass production

The production of eight million brake light switches annually is subject to its own set of priorities. Flexibility is less important here than other factors such as maximization of output and reliability of process. A pioneering plant with an efficient precision injection molding machine and two ultra-precise robots at its heart is taking care of those jobs where cycle time is critical.
