Future-proof assembly concept

How 200 robots deliver upon the requirements of quality, profitability, and flexibility

The high-tech shavers made by Philips are in great demand and considered premium products all over the world. Unlike most razors produced, these are assembled in Drachten, Netherlands and not in the Far East. Learn how 200 robots embedded into a groundbreaking assembly concept deliver upon the requirements
of quality, profitability, and flexibility.

The automation strategist Schaller explained that, “after first analyses, a system concept emerged, which could only work on the basis of extremely flexible automation components from one source. Due to the multitude of assembly stations, a component mix of different manufacturers  would have led to an uncontrollable complexity. Thus, we needed 6-axis robots, SCARA robots, vision systems, part
feeders and controls – and everything from a single source. In this connection we counted on Omron Adept, as their high-duty components meet all requirements and already proved their efficiency in similar projects in the past.”
