A Success Story

Project: Foil Roof Frame Moulding

Initial Situation

Task: WKW – Foil Roof Frame Moulding

“In our production, we have a high proportion of manual processing in certain work processes, which has inevitably led to losses in process reliability,” says Pio Feruggio from WKW Erbslöh Automotive AG. “At present, we manually cover roof frame mouldings with protective film in a time-consuming process. There are manual devices for this to make it easier, but it still requires a lot of time. When looking for a local partner to automate his processes, the head of department came across MMB.”

"With the convincing concept of MMB, we were able to reduce the expenses for process reliability by 20% when foiling car roof frame mouldings."

How did you become aware of MMB as a partner?

While looking for a local partner for the automation of our processes, we came across MMB. MMB is already known to us through realised automation projects as a competent and goal-oriented partner.

Why did you decide on MMB?

MMB presented us with a convincing concept that would allow us to automatically obtain a high-quality product from our portfolio with a protective film, which would then end up being installed at a well-known car manufacturer. Thanks to the automated process, we were able to significantly increase process reliability.

How did the implementation of the process go in your eyes?

Due to the proximity and short distances to MMB, the project could be implemented very efficiently.

By using the system, we were able to increase process reliability and reduce the necessary expenses by 20 per cent. MMB’s uncomplicated spare parts procurement at short notice also deserves special mention.

What does the solution look like?

We now use an insertion drawer including a precisely fitting contour holder for roof frame strips. The film is applied by means of a robot. Thanks to the commitment of everyone involved, an innovative solution was put into operation on time.
