step one

Initial situation

BOPLA is one of the market leaders in the fields of enclosure technology and input systems. In order to further strengthen the position, the topic "digital transformation" is capitalized. After the successful implementation of a production data acquisition system (PDA), a real-time order status query and paperless production, the process of automating the material flow is now on the agenda. The material transport from the picking warehouse to the processing centers was carried out manually by pallet trolley. The further transport to the next work step, for example to the assembly or print shop, was carried out independently by the employees who completed the work step.

step two


The goal was to relieve employees and automate internal logistics with the help of an autonomous mobile robot. In addition, a reject part at the machining center must be replaced by the robot from the warehouse within 15 minutes after an employee reports this in the PDA. During the on-site visit by a Phoenix Mecano application specialist, additional challenges were identified. To enable the AMR robot to navigate autonomously in the best possible way, some existing paths and bottlenecks had to be widened somewhat. Furthermore, the existing orientation points in the halls were limited for the robot and required creative solutions.
