High production rate at IAC in Sweden thanks to robotic automation


The combined advantages offered by ANIMEX’s robotic cells and ABB’s robots have helped streamline IAC Skara’s production of interior plastic components for Volvo.

Two of ABB’s IRB 2600 robots currently work inside one of IAC Skara’s newest robotic cells, mounting clips on different kinds of injection-moulded panels. The robots stand adjacent to an injection moulding machine. The advantages provided by ABB robots include a high degree of precision in mounting the clips and the ability to perform the assembly work with very small deviation tolerances.
