The contract manufacturer of electronics and electro­me­chanics, Orbit One, has built a new unique robot cell at the Ronneby unit. The cell has been specially designed on behalf of a large Swedish industrial company in order to manufacture identi­fi­cation and trace­a­bility solutions with built-in analy­tical tools.

”We received an inquiry on whether we could design an effective and sustai­nable solution for their manufacturing. Thanks to our fantastic coope­ration with the customer and the automation consul­tants Spectrum Technology, we have now built a unique solution, which is fully opera­tional,” says Vice President & Chief Operating Officer, Ulf Karlsson from Orbit One.

”The robot cell has a fasci­nating complexity and is unbeli­e­vably space-efficient. It is fitted with three robotic arms and requires only one operator. The cell manufactures the entire unit and the robot handles all steps from depane­li­sation with laser, laser soldering, printed circuit board testing, battery assembly for plastic encapsu­lation and laser marking of the finished product. The quality requi­re­ments are extremely high and casting is done with the maximum possible accuracy. The robot cell confi­gu­ration delivers one product every 30 seconds,” continues Ulf Karlsson.

”It is also grati­fying that with this deal we show that we can compete with low-cost countries like China, for example, thanks to our high technical expertise. Manufacturing is also brought closer to the customer, which is of utmost impor­tance during the development of complex products, when close colla­bo­ration is essential for the final result. The project has also strengthened and improved our own compe­tence and compe­ti­ti­veness in a manner that will benefit all our customers,” Ulf Karlsson concludes.
