Customer Day 2009
Andon’s annual customer day
Andon’s annual customer day event this year took place in Örebro September 29. The theme was Optimum utilization of robot systems – a part of the market offer and our strong focus on Arc Welding Robot Systems towards the General Industry.
The event was attended by more than 100 Swedish customers and a delegation from Denmark. The mix between customers already using our robot systems and new customers is of high value for the visitors, they get the opportunity to exchange information and gain experience from each other.
The event started with presentations covering current market situation and trends, hard- and software options to improve system utilization and Andon’s standard approach to production in low batches with possibilities to run the system without operator attendance.
The eight individual demonstrations – with new developed self optimising search routines, programming methods, use of laser sensors and communication between two large robots, flexible production with Andon Pallet Handler, and life time service – gave the audience the possibility to see part of our market offer live in “production mode”.
The event was kindly supported by ABB personnel, demonstrating the new flexible IRB4600 robot with remote service.
In all, the seminar proved that continuous production without disturbances today is a reality. But it requires a good co-operation between supplier and customer resulting in a correct solution and – in the end – Optimum utilization of the robot system.
