Focus on value creation
Qualitetch is a leading metal components manufacturer serving a wide array of blue chip, 2nd and 3rd tier supply chains and smaller independent customers in the UK, Europe and globally.
Serving industries including aerospace, automotive,defence, electronics, telecommunication, energy and beyond, it offers a range of engineering services including photo and chemical etching, metal stamping, 3D component forming, CNC machining, EDM wire erosion and laser cutting.
As an ambitious growing business, increasingly serving larger blue-chip customers in new geographies and new markets, Qualitetch was looking for a way to double production capacity without having to double headcount or run into second shifts.
Qualitetch deployed an EVA robot at the start of a key pre-cleaning line to automate the feeding of metal sheets one by one into the cleaning machine at timed intervals, a part of the process had previously been done manually by a member of the team.
WHY EVA ROBOT?
Affordable, simple to program and maintain and easy to move between different lines and applications.
The transition to automation doubled the capacity of a previous bottleneck in the production line. The investment was earned within eight months, and staff can now focus on other value-added tasks.
