Case: Prima Power – Jucat’s robotic system boosted the efficiency of a new automated production line
A client of Prima Power’s had long experience in manufacturing self-service storage doors manually. However, the manual process was afflicted by various challenges pertaining to internal logistics, leading to misplaced goods, delayed deliveries and even damaged products. It was clear that a more efficient, higher quality production system was required.
Prima Power delivered its client a new automated production line which required a robotic system for joining and attaching the door components. According to Antti Kuusisaari, Vice President of System Sales at Prima Power, Jucat was a natural choice for a partner as he was already familiar with the company which is located just a stone’s throw from Prima Power’s premises.
“I’ve known both Jucat and CEO Jukka Rintala for a long time. I knew Jucat is a highly dynamic and forward-looking company that has solid expertise in robotics and actively takes on new challenges. We inquired whether they could implement the robotic system we required, and that sparked our collaboration”, Kuusisaari recounts the early stages of the project.
