Renovated robots increases production time
Significant increase in production
Close cooperation with customer
Stability in production
The uptime of Imerys' existing plant at the factory in Mors was, however, fluctuating until a couple of years ago. Here, a line with 6 large turning heads operated in a heavy mechanical system that often required maintenance hours. This resulted in short uptime, and production was frequently halted.
Two renovated Kawasaki robots became the solution to Imerys' challenges when the uptime of the existing plant was short, and production was fluctuating. With assistance from BILA Service and in close collaboration with the production staff, the plant now operates with significantly increased uptime and is much more flexible than before.
At Imerys, there was no doubt: There was a need for a solution that increased the plant's uptime and streamlined production. The factory already had good experience with robotics, and based on that, along with their knowledge of automation, the company drafted a solution to the issue themselves.
Challenge solved in close cooperation
Subsequently, Project Manager Rasmus Krog reached out to BILA Service, which had previously provided automation solutions to Imerys. This marked the beginning of a collaborative project between Imerys and BILA focusing on the layout, integration, and construction of the new system.
"Our welders and electricians came up with an idea involving two robots to feed the machine. Subsequently, we contacted BILA to bring the idea to life, and based on our sketches, we collaboratively finalised the layout, built the setup, and tested it in their workshop,"
Rasmus Krogh, Project Manager
It was a positive collaboration where the expertise of both parties was utilised, resulting in an optimised production line with significantly increased uptime. "It has been a really good collaborative project. We know our company inside and out and are better at some things ourselves. But when it comes to robots, BILA are the experts and have the right skills to solve the task," according to Rasmus Krogh.
