Welltec leverages employee resources better with Global AGV
Transport of raw materials to the production area
Better flow in production
To ensure increased efficiency and create a better working environment, there has been a significant focus on automating workflows at Welltec's factory in Esbjerg.
As part of that process, Welltec deployed a Global AGV to transport raw materials to and from the production area.
This has enabled the utilisation of knowledge and employee skills in a much more effective manner, benefiting both the employees and the company.
Efficiency improvement and better utilization of employee competencies created a need for automation
Located by the roaring waves of the North Sea in Esbjerg, Welltec develops and produces hi-tech solutions for the energy sector worldwide. Welltec's groundbreaking products are designed to optimise well performance in any environment, and their solutions have helped customers increase operational efficiency and reduce their CO2 footprint in a safe and sustainable manner for over 25 years.
Welltec's factory in Esbjerg runs like a well-oiled machine, with large robot systems supplying the CNC machines with components and tools. Since the establishment of the factory, there has been a strong focus on automating workflows, both to ensure increased efficiency and to create a better working environment.
As part of this process, Welltec introduced a Global AGV to transport raw materials to and from the production area. This has ensured a smooth flow without bottlenecks, freed up employee time, and minimised interruptions in production.
"Previously, when we had to transport raw materials from the saw to our CNC department, the saw operator had to drive back and forth. Today, we let the AGV handle it. That means we don't have to take someone out of production just to fetch a pallet,"
explains Haris Medosevic, CNC Coordinator at Welltec in Esbjerg.
Particularly the shortage of employees with forklift certification has posed challenges.
"There is a significant shortage of employees with forklift certifications in the CNC department. That has made us heavily dependent on those individuals whenever a pallet needed to be transported to a new location, and it has sometimes limited us. With the planning of our workflows, we can now assign the AGV to retrieve the different pallets we need, without requiring the saw operator to go and fetch them"
