DFI-Geisler renovates robot for handling table tops
Quick ROI in just in 2-3 years
Flexible and reliable solution
Halves production time
DFI-Geisler wanted to streamline the process at their glueing system. Two employees were handling the process. One employee manually inserted the heavy tabletops, then another employee manually flipped and pushed them along conveyors.
Together with BILA Service, DFI-Geisler found a solution to their challenge. The company decided to invest in a renovated robot, which was put into the production chain at the glue system.
DFI-Geisler has halved the labour requirement with the solution from BILA Service. They have experienced a improvement in production time, while at the same time, they have obtained a future-proof solution that is flexible and has the potential to double capacity.
Investing in flexibility and avoiding bottle necks
BILA Service delivers a renovated robot cell as part of a project for more efficient handling of countertop lamination. DFI-Geisler is one of Europe's leading suppliers of countertops for kitchens, bathrooms, and homes. DFI-Geisler offers countertops in laminate, wood, steel, glass, as well as concrete and has gained a strong position in the European market.
DFI-Geisler faced the production of a laminate countertop series that was labour-intensive and involved many processes. Therefore, they wanted to streamline and rationalise the numerous processes involved in edge bonding countertops with one of the company's edge bonding machines. Previously, two employees handled the bonding process. One employee manually loaded the heavy countertops into the edge bonder, after which another employee manually flipped the countertops using a lifting device and pushed them along connected conveyors.
Renovated robot cooperates with glue system
After DFI-Geisler had discussions with the edge bonder supplier without receiving a potential automation solution, a casual conversation about efficiency possibilities with the supplier and BILA Service turned out to be the solution for the project. The choice fell on an investment in a renovated robot provided by BILA Service, which would collaborate with the edge bonding machine.
"A used robot had the right investment scope for us and was the best solution for the price. BILA Service have delivered a renovated robot that looks and performs like new – and even comes with a warranty,"
