Since the frames of all wheelbarrows and carts are made of steel for logical reasons, an essential part of production involves arc welding, which produces frames in all the necessary shapes and dimensions. Automation, or rather robotisation of this process, was thus one of the first steps towards more efficient production.
Many models in smaller series
“Despite the high delivery numbers, we produce a relatively wide portfolio of wheelbarrow and cart models. Therefore, we need to weld individual parts in smaller series so that we can meet individual orders as they come in”, says Mr Mato, chief engineer of Isolit Bravo’s machinery, adding: “Because of this, we were looking for a partner who had the know-how for our type of production.”
