SKODA AUTO Vrchlabí plant launches automated ordering and supply of parts for CNC processing lines
Parts are now automatically supplied to the CNC processing lines in production. Guided by IoT sensor technology, an automatic transport robot then picks up the carrier and takes it to one of the CNC lines.
Due to the use of IoT technologies, the process allows for an automated, continuous supply of parts to where they are needed – further increasing manufacturing productivity. What’s more, this also increases safety at ŠKODA AUTO: logisticians are no longer required to enter production areas because all components are transported to the CNC lines automatically.
In 2018, for example, the manufacturer started to transport parts between its metrology centre and CNC processing machines using an automatic robot for the first time.
