Significant increase in production
JO Safety produces signage for all types of businesses all over the world. They are an approved supplier for i.a. Siemens, which uses vast amounts of signage for their wind turbine production.
They produce signage in plastic, vinyl with kiss-cut, and acrylic. Here, items are sorted manually, as the robot is primarily configured for plastic items.
For plastic signs, they use the robot to pick and sort the items. The whole process is fully automated – from when the sheets are placed on the table until they are fully sorted in the 30 boxes.
Kim Bekker Rasmussen explains:
We can leave a huge stack of plastic items on the loading table, press “autoplay” – and then let Murphy feed, cut, and sort the items automatically without errors. We usually do this at the end of a workday. Then the production is finished and ready for packing the next morning.
There has been a noticeable increase in production since Murphy’s arrival. Items that previously had to be punched out can now be cut. This gives us greater flexibility and faster conversion, as well as increased speed in general.”
Quick adjustment opened up new business opportunities
When the COVID pandemic hit, the need for signposts, distance floor signs, markings for chairs and tables, etc. erupted from one day to the next. The Zünd cutting system made it possible to develop and produce new items in different sizes in a matter of hours.
Kim Bekker Rasmussen says:
“We were so overwhelmed by the number of new jobs, that we literally had to work around the clock, and still we could not keep up! There were lines of vinyl rolls all the way down to the assembly department waiting to be cut.
Without Zünd it would not have been possible to take advantage of the opportunities that emerged in the wake of the pandemic.”
