AV&R's Expertise

WE HELP YOU SOLVE PROBLEMS

We have been working with manufacturers of different industries for more than 25 years, we have helped them overcome many production challenges and issues. This is why our robotic systems have been developed to bring industrialized solutions to our manufacturing clients, adaptable to tackle their challenges.

THE ISSUE

THE SOLUTION

Labor Shortage

Qualified labor shortage and the costs associated to training of manual operators are a challenge to scaling manufacturing facilities.

Robotic systems can operate continuously, across several shifts, polishing or deburring of parts. They are a robust solution to solving labor shortage challenges.
Production Throughput and Capacity

Manufacturing is a competitive industry and the need to increase production efficiency, throughput and capacity is crucial.

 

Increasing their production capacity thanks to additional work hours, and optimizing cycle time, robotic systems are powerful tools for manufacturing competitiveness.
Production of High Mix and High Variance Parts

Parts manufacturers (foundries, machine shops, etc.) have multiple part batches to produce.

AV&R robotic systems are flexible and can adapt processes to multiple parts. They are also designed for easy programming of new recipes by the user regardless of their skill. This ensures they are adaptable to high mix and high variance productions.
Consistency of Quality 

Manual processes inherently have inconsistency part-to-part. Extra care and time is often required to ensure part quality in a production environment which can lead to waste or over quality.

 

A robotic system allows consistent operations and guarantees equal production quality.

Health and Safety

Manual surface finishing is repetitive and can cause injuries (tendinitis, respiratory issues, tool related accident, etc.)

Thanks to a closed and controlled environment, robotic systems operate tedious tasks for humans. The use of this technology greatly reduces health and safety risks.
