In line with customer demands for even higher levels of flexibility, contract welding specialist Bonvicini Carpenteria wanted to build on its long legacy of using automation to solve demanding production challenges. Alongside investment in new industrial robot technology, the company also wanted to introduce its first collaborative robot (cobot).
Bonvicini Carpenteria has been using FANUC robots for over 20 years, so knew where to turn for its latest requirements. As well as new FANUC ARC Mate 100iD/8L arc welding robots, the company is leveraging the benefits of its first collaborative robot, a FANUC CRX-10iA/L, which is now welding umbrella tubes as part of a cell-based system delivered by leading system integrator, Tecnorobot.
Bonvicini Carpenteria today enjoys even higher levels of quality and flexibility. The company can flex between automation solutions whenever production volumes dictate. In particular, Bonvicini Carpenteria is taking advantage of easy and fast robot programming with features such as drag and drop functionality and a simple tablet interface.
