Lights out production
Bramidan previously had a manpower based manual production in two shift. With the introduction of the new welding robot installation, the amount of shifts is not reduced but capacity is increased significantly also with robot continues welding during the last part of the day while there are no employees present in the company. “By the start of the next shift, the welding robot has finished welding the frame. Such a high level of reliability was previously unattainable. Furthermore, it results in a considerable saving on the labour costs, which are rather high in Denmark,” said Niels Grue Sandberg.
"I cannot imagine what we should do without the robots today. Since we have increased the workflow in the production and the business is still growing, we are at the point to invest in a larger copy of the biggest welding robot installation, that can run without manpower during the night and weekend shift. Then we can further expand the production capacity and it keeps the cost down in Denmark, where the salaries are high.”
