Automating the nightshift to meet growing production demands

Read the full story

The Task

Enable NTM to increase production capacity of garbage trucks and compacters at its Finnish factory, without the need to expand the plant or interfere with existing production. 

The Solution

A collaborative robot solution involves a FANUC M-2000iA/2300 lifting and rotating compacter sections, which weigh up to two tons, and a FANUC ARC Mate 100iD/8L expertly welding the sections in the unmanned factory at night. 

The Result

NTM can meet growing demands for its products without the need for a nightshift. Much of the heavily lifting is now done safely by the robots instead of employees.
