We are prepared, are you?
_together we stand ready for the next challange
In the driver seat for green automation
9 production cells with KUKA Robots
- Production is almost fully automated. It consists of nine production cells with 13 robots and nine AIVs (Autonomous Intelligent Vehicle) that transport components from cell to cell. This enables faster changeover and capacity expansion.
- Robots are nothing new. The innovations lie in everything you do not see. Everything is connected - and everything must be coordinated, and communicated and then connected to the customer's ordering system, says Anita Hager, CEO of Intek. - We use artificial intelligence and machine learning in parts of the process. The goal is to make the machines themselves understand the processes they perform and make adjustments accordingly.
The production is so flexible that they can manufacture a new version of the battery or increase production without modifying the equipment in the factory, says Sølvar Flatmo in Intek Engineering, which is the factory's total supplier.
