One unit for several assemblies

To automate the assembly of 2 different products with modest production volumes while ensuring a good return on investment. Here is the problem our client was facing. To develop 2 custom machines proved too costly in relation to the quantity of products to be assembled and continuing production on manual stations was not more economical in the medium to long term.

R&D Technology proposed its Evolubox flexible assembly cell, designed and patented to meet this type of industrial challenge. The machine was developed on a standard base, while the workstations are custom-made and interchangeable, allowing the customer to use the equipment for several products. This solution reduced the cost of the operation per piece and optimised the return on investment period.
