AVK Gummi produces high-performance rubber components for various industry sectors at their facility in Låsby, Denmark. AVK Gummi has implemented the GoPal 400 solution as part of its LEAN and Industry 4.0 program. The GoPal collaborative robots transport pallets with tools from the tooling department to different machines in the production area. This enables optimization of the tooling flow, thereby freeing up staff to stay at their machines instead of making runs to and from the tooling department. GoPal is also used to move finished goods from the production area to the shipping department.
AVK Gummi was looking for an easy, fast, and safe solution to automate their in-house transport and improve their internal logistics. “In terms of safety, it is an improvement on regular forklifts. The robot is very careful around staff” says Kresten Krogh.
AVK Gummi invited Robotize to test drive robots on their premises very early on in the GoPal product development phase, and this close cooperation has now led to the implementation of a full GoPal solution.
The Robotize GoPal collaborative robots are easy to use, fast to install and safe among workers. These characteristics brought significant benefits to the internal pallet transport at AVK Gummi. “Operation and maintenance have been simple so far. We are already profiting from having automated our internal pallet transport” explains Kresten Krogh.
AVK Gummi plans are already in place to extend the cooperation with Robotize even further “In the future we would like to get more collaborative robots which can work together” tells Kresten Krogh.
