Installed robots led to higher efficiency and more sustainable working-conditions in Dutch factory.
They used to spend several hours inside the paint cabinet, powder-coating the vessels at the Aebi Schmidt factory in Holden, Netherlands. Now the robots are doing the heavy work, and the employees the interesting ones.
-We have reduced the amount of paint, the powder coating is faster, and stronger and our workers can do other, more interesting and more health promoting tasks, the CEO, Gert Jan ten Brinke at Aebi Schmidt Netherlands, and Belgium says.
They needed to increase the production and had difficulties finding people who could do the powder coating-job.
- Now, with the robots, we have constant quality. And the people are still here. The working- environment is much better now, when we can use the robots, says ten Brinke.
