Two GoPal Autonomous Mobile Robots from robotize have been implemented with great success at Scanfil. Scanfil is a well-known international contract manufacturer and system supplier for the electronics industry.
Due to its large internal distances, Scanfil was looking for a flexible, agile and fully integrated solution that could be implemented smoothly and adapt seamlessly to the company’s future needs.
The GoPal Autonomous Mobile Robots were the best solution due to their intelligent navigation that allows the robot to make dynamic decisions on the fly. If the GoPal comes across an obstacle – such as an object or a person – it will drive around it. If the path is completely blocked, the GoPal will find the shortest alternate route to its destination.
Now two fully integrated GoPal AMR work on the production line at Scanfil. GoPal is supporting the production process and moving finished goods from production to warehouse. “We are investing in GoPal because we need a flexible solution that can adapt to meet our changing needs,” says Jakob Fager.
The GoPal solution consists of GoPal AMR, accessories, and software, which are all integrated and fully approved. For Scanfil this represents a great benefit since the GoPal AMR were pretty much ready to work once they hit the production floor. “The advantage of GoPal is that it is a small robot which requires no major adjustments at the company to integrate it and that it has a very short implementation time” explains Jakob Fager.
At Scanfil the GoPal AMR are seen as a sustainable investment for the future. “In the future we will use the system to also transport products out to our dispatch dock. We also intend to use the robots for other types of transportation within the company” says Jakob Fager. Also, the GoPal AMR help Scanfil better plan their future activities. “We will be using the data we get from the robot to plan our activities” explains Jakob Fager.
