Automated deburring with a KUKA Agilus robot
The KUKA Agilus robot was successfully installed by Manders Automation at aluminium specialist ALUMERO FINEX Extrusions. The robot can work at different speed levels and from different defined angles and starting points. At FINEX the Agilus robot ensures that every product is deburred just as precisely and accurately and this at a considerable speed.
ALUMERO FINEX: quality over quantity
The family business ALUMERO FINEX Extrusions B.V. from Helmond is part of the Austrian Alumero Group. With more than 25 years of experience Alumero is a specialist in the aluminium market. FINEX focuses on specific aluminium precision of microprofiles with minimal tolerances and thin wall thicknesses. At FINEX, they do not believe in standard solutions for each customer, but they prefer to work with short lines and do not use minimum order quantities. Each customer has its own requirements and therefore tailor-made solutions are worked out for and, above all, together with the customer. For FINEX, quality and service are far more important than quantity. The market in which FINEX specialises cannot be defined easily. The parent company currently divides its activities into the categories Solar, Living, Industry, Bautec and Extrusion. For each category, the priority is to handle the concerns of Alumero Group's customers, from the first idea until the final product. FINEX has the same objective.

A qualitative cooperation between man and robot was an important requirement for us in this automation project. The involvement of FINEX employees, the service of Manders Automation and KUKA and the training were all important elements".
