With single integrated Vision-Controller-Robot solution
When Atria PLC, an international Finnish food company, decided to increase its product packaging speed at its Malmö plant in Sweden. However space was very limited and Atria did not want to rebuild its production facilities. In addition, Atria wanted a very easy way for the machine operator to locate and remove blockages and get the machine back up and running very quickly.
Atria invited five specially selected turnkey suppliers to tender for the project. After in-depth analysis they chose the machine builder “Case-Link” who proposed 100% Omron products and services. The Case-Link/Omron combination resulted in a very compact solution since it integrated all Vision-Controller-Robot-Safety-I/O-Server activities into one network. And, since all these solutions come from the same manufacturer everything was guaranteed to work and communicate together faultlessly.
“The Case-Link/Omron solution is not only very technically advanced it is also very cost-competitive,” says spokesperson for Atria. “Some of the other suppliers recommended several robots in each cell. This would have cost substantially more than the single robot cell solution from Case-Link and Omron.”
