The Mega trend high product mix and low volume drives the need for more flexible robot solutions also for large groups and subcontractors. Traditional fixed robot solutions with fences and traditional programming are no longer sufficiently flexible and future-proof.
More than 90% of Sweden’s and Europe’s manufacturing industry consists of small and medium-sized companies working exclusively with small series manufacturing, resulting in uneven and low utilization of machines. They have mostly manually operated machines and therefore often suffer from low productivity and competitiveness.
They want to automate, but it has been difficult to make profit with a fixed robot when the volumes are variating, meanwhile the machines are badly utilized. When they have small series and new products continuously it will be expensive to reprogram the robot which often becomes unused anyways.
To run short series you want to run the machine manually, but unfortunately a fixed robot and fence are in the way, blocking machines. That’s why automation rate is extremely low, far below 1%, in small series manufacturing.
OpiFlex offers world-unique and flexible robot solutions that represent the third robot revolution. OpiFlex solves the challenge of automating high mix and low volume. They also provide benefits for high volume production with rapid integration and standardized future-proof hardware solution. Fast and easy change of factory layout and gradual up and down ramping of volume.
By simply moving the entire robot cell you can profitably automate low, uneven utilized machines and small series production. Program the robot in less than 10 minutes in order to cope with the continuously new products. OpiFlex offers a safety solution without fences so you avoid a large robot cell that is in the way, blocking machines. Safety solution meets all safety requirements.
With OpiFlex mobile robot platform, you easily move the entire robot cell with a pallet truck. When it is docked in front of the machine it is just as a fixed robot. A patented docking station ensures high precision and stability even for big robots.
Move the robot and you have full manual access to the machine.
