- Ward Automation uses collaborative robots, or “cobots”, because they are known for their capacity of working safely alongside operators in a factory environment. The dual-arm ABB YUMI cobot, in combination with the Asycube 240 flexible feeding system, ensures a fast and accurate assembly of medical device components, whilst the operator can safely continue to place the components in the flexible feeders.
- The Asycube can be fitted with different platforms to ensure high-quality handling of any type of component. Furthermore, the changeover can be executed swiftly and without any tools. This flexibility allows Ward Automation to accommodate their client’s specific needs.
- The cobot and Asycube can be easily re-programmed for new applications and future developments. Their capacity to evolve over time, together with their flexibility for a fast and easy production changeover, offer clients a significant return on investment.
