All-in-One-Solution for fast automated processes
The compact sFAB-Alpha requires only 25 percent of the space of a conventional machine. It is designed to automate manual assembly work and at the same time achieve high productivity and top quality. It offers immediate support for variable mix or variable volume production. The platform works with freely combinable parts supply units. The required units are set up according to production requirements. This significantly reduces the amount of work involved. Shorter and more efficient changeover times are also made possible.
“The main cause of machine stops is the replacement of parts. When part types need to be replaced, this process can take considerable time. The sFAB-Alpha supports offline exchange and batch exchange of feeders. It is therefore possible to change the feeders in a batch using the feeder trolley feeding method. In this way, parts can be exchanged in the shortest possible time. In addition, the speed of processes can be significantly increased by optimizing the cycle balance in the line,” explains Stefan Janssen, Assistant General Manager of FUJI EUROPE CORPORATION GmbH.
The sFAB-Alpha communicates with the Nexim software system provided by FUJI. Since it is possible to use shared panel and parts data, the time required for order creation can be reduced.
