Flexibility & reduced stock ties

Mobile robots lift Kongskilde Industries

Kongskilde Industries’ technology initiatives are about strategy: about where to go for growth through flexible automation.
The concrete investments are driven by the goal of efficiency, differentiation and the desire to solve a number of concrete challenges. Initially it is about process optimisation, and subsequently the aim is to strengthen lean efforts and improve production itself.

Kongskilde Industries wanted a smooth mobile solution with proper muscle power and sufficient lifting capacity.
The goal was a flexible automation solution that could reduce warehouse tie-ups, ensure faster turnaround and automate internal transport processes between 6-8 positions.
