Profitable Automation for High-Mix Small-Volume Production

Many companies producing in small batches are still relying on manual work. However, maintaining the manual production in Switzerland is challenging since the production costs are higher than the foreign competition, and recruiting worker for dull, low-paid jobs is becoming difficult. Traditional automation solutions are not viable since they are typically designed for mass production and are not profitable for small volumes, while new plug-and-play solutions are not flexible enough to address industrial needs properly. To overcome this, we develop solutions so that companies with no expertise in robotics can learn the skills to develop their own affordable, ad-hoc solutions. We focus on both making the technology easier to use and helping non-experts to learn the skills needed to use robots to their full potential.
