Low Cost Automation and smart plastics for fully automated production and intelligent plant control system of the future.
Glass-fibre reinforced plastic (GRP) is a popular material when it comes to the interior cladding of trains. The Wehlage group of companies takes care of the finishing of such glass-fibre reinforced plastic parts - and has been relying on the help of a sanding robot for several months to relieve its specialist employees. But the path to automation is often not an easy task, especially for small and medium-sized craft businesses. That is why Wehlage has brought in the experts from moduco, who support companies with their know-how in process automation. The company igus® is involved as a plastics specialist with its 7th robot axis for cost-effective and efficient automation.
