Robot solution eliminated work environment issues and boosted productivity.

A few years ago, KE Fibertec Væveri A / S faced two key challenges. The company wanted to improve the working environment: all heavy and monotonous lifts in production had to be removed. At the same time, the management wanted to strengthen the degree of automation so that productivity and competitiveness were strengthened.

The solution should be

  • Flexible
  • Simple
  • Quick to implement


“Our work environment problems consisted in the fact that we previously had many heavy and inappropriate lifts at floor height and above shoulder height with 6 kilo heavy yarn keys. Robot technology was not the first thing we thought of, and the original solutions we came up with were discarded by various “The idea of ​​letting a robot cope with the problem was born.”

“In close collaboration with Tchnicon, we embarked on the project. Quietly, we went from ideas on paper to concrete solutions and over to a clear roadmap, which was approved by the board. We found that Technicon was very competent, and along the way in During the process, we were guided safely ashore. ” – Frank Hansen, director of KE Fibertec Væveri A / S



Technicon delivered a modular plug & play solution composed of selected standard products from their range:

  • A UR10 robot that can lift up to 10 kg. It creates the right lifting capacity.
  • A combined horizontal gantry and vertical lift stand that ensures the optimal working radius.
  • Gripping tool
  • Software
  • Installation and commissioning



KE Fibertec chose a gantry solution where the robot can work in 4 meters horizontal length. By combining the gantry with the lift stand that can lift the base of the UR10 robot from a height of 900 to 1,400 mm, KE Fibertec achieved the optimum working radius and lifting capacity.



  • The many heavy, monotonous twists and long lifts are over. The robot has relieved the production employee’s back, legs and arms.
  • Resource-free productivity evidence – valuable employees are released for other projects.
  • A flexible automation solution that is quick to install, flexible to adapt and easy to operate.

“We have not for a second regretted that we invested in flexible automation. We find that it works according to plan and everything has gone up in a higher unit. It is an investment that has quickly paid off.” – Frank Hansen, director of KE Fibertec Væveri A / S.
