KUKA's System Partner Waybo has developed a series of pre-engineered machine tending cells featuring KUKA Robots that are ideal for automating high-mix low-volume manufacturing. They're compact, quick to install, and easy to configure to run new parts. For example, Précinov inc. bought its first PartNR cell in 2016. The installation was done in less than a day and the success was such that since then, they have bought two other PartNR cells. In less than three years, they now have three cells and several other projects in mind!
Waybo also offers customized solutions to adapt to different machines and the size of parts. For example, APF Villeneuve wanted to automate the loading and unloading of a horizontal two-table machining center. The installation that ended last December has been so beneficial for the company that it has ordered two other systems since.
