Preliminary studies

Get help to see the big picture and create a future-proof solution

Preliminary studies with an appreciated 7-step model to help you see the big picture and create a future-proof solution. Everything is based on your market and strategic needs. Together, assess what is appropriate and profitable to automate by thinking flexibly and future-proof. You get to fill our developed tool for automation analysis so you get exact figures on where you can increase your productivity, based on your product mix. In addition, we visit your company to understand your needs.

Our experienced automation consultants have conducted a large number of preliminary studies on both small companies, but also large Tier1 and OEM. Many companies want help to look with different eyes, confirm their own thoughts, or suggest new ideas for a flexible and future-proof solution. Many also want to carry out technical studies and see effects and get help with input but also ROI calculations. Some do not have time to carry out the feasibility studies themselves and want a resource relief. We help with all this!

The 7-step model is a further development of a model developed in the project “Produce in Sweden” which is part of the government’s investment in Smart Industry, read more about the project here. OpiFlex has been active in the project led by RISE and in which Chalmers, Linnaeus University and Träcentrum also participate, as well as several companies in metal, wood, food and house construction. The model is intended to map opportunities to automate flexible small series production in manufacturing companies. The guide includes tools for more accurate analysis regarding efficiency, ergonomics and economy.  

In connection with the completed feasibility study, substantial discounts are offered on installations. 

Automation guides

Get expert insight into the most important things in automation

Read guides from our automation experts on challenges and tips on how you can automate in a future-proof and cost-effective way.

We at OpiFlex have also trained i.a. all IUC companies (which do prerequisite studies for Robotlyftet) as well as many larger companies through EDIG on challenges and opportunities with flexible automation of series production.

Calculate how much your productivity and contribution margin will increase

Production economic model verified by Chalmers

 Use our production economics model verified by a production professor at Chalmers. There we use your own figures about your products, product mix and machines so you can calculate and estimate the effects that lead to increased productivity, and increased gross margin for you.

To succeed with the automation of small series production, fast and easy programming is required in combination with flexible grippers. With fast and easy programming, you can normally run 70-80% of the volume in small series production depending on the product mix. If, on the other hand, you have traditional programming, they can be as low as only 5-20% of the volume that is profitable with a robot, the rest needs to be run manually. Therefore, fast and easy programming, as well as manual access to the machine, is extremely important. Read more in our guides.

One of the great advantages of an industrial robot, in addition to creating a better working environment, is the significantly increased contribution margin per unit of time it works. This is due to the reduction of labour costs. A robot normally increases productivity by 20-60%. For example, if you produce 16 hours manually, the robot is ready after about 12 hours. But if you can not sell the increased volume that the robot can produce, you will not benefit from the productivity increase, leaving the robot and the machine to just stand still.

However, with a mobile robot you can take full advantage of the increased productivity and contribution margin. This is done by instead moving the robot to a new machine. This means that you can often disconnect about 1.2-1.5 people per shift instead of normally just one person with a fixed robot. The gross margin can thus increase by approximately SEK 0.8 – 1.2 million per shift robot coating with a mobile robot, compared with approximately SEK 0.6-0.8 million with a fixed robot. 

We are happy to help you calculate the effects for you.

Installation and integration

OpiFlex offers flexible mobile robot solutions that are turnkey and CE marked 

OpiFIex offers turnkey flexible and mobile robot solutions with fast and easy programming and where you avoid fences – ready to use. With OpiFlex flexible solutions, you can easily add a new cell and share a robot whenever you want.

Standard hardware and flexible software make it easy and fast to integrate the entire robot cell, including with machine, robot and safety. This makes it much faster than integration with a traditional robot cell.  WE make installations in collaboration with our wide network of integrators.

We simply help you with a fast and smooth integration!

Full support & Service

Safe and easy

For us, safety and high availability are important. OpiFlex offers full service and support agreements with both remote and on-site support.

OpiFlex robot cells are hardware-based, fully standardized and based on industry-standard components from leading suppliers to ensure robustness and high availability. We create all flexibility with the help of software. OpiFlex has chosen not to have any in-house developed electronics to make the service as easy as possible. We use standard ABB robots with standard ABB robot controller.

OpiFlex together with the global support organizations at our partners ABB and SICK as well as our local partners, we can offer good support on our solution around the world.

Buy, lease or rent

Simple payment solutions allowing flexibility and easy manufacturing automation

Through our flexible and standardized solution, we can also offer leasing or rental solutions of our flexible industrial robots and automation solutions.

There is a great need for flexible automation and robot solutions to meet the great need for flexibility that small series production and the mega trend high mix and low volume require. To meet the stronger need for flexibility, OpiFlex offers completely new opportunities for flexibility both in terms of business and payment models. This is done through our sister company Rent a Robot International AB 

We have several large groups, OEM and Tier1, who have contacted us and who want to obtain more flexible robot solutions, automate parts that have been difficult before due to low series and create future-proof and standardized robot concept for their factories.

Customers want to be able to avoid investments and be able to have greater flexibility and take costs directly in projects or as an operational expense, much like bringing in extra staff when needed.
