Danish Robot Reduces Cost, Optimizes Production At Precision Engineering Company

Rising wages and the intricate management of the labour force have created a challenging work environment for a Singapore-based company, Sky Engineering. For a long time, this precision engineering company tried to reduce their production costs. They finally succeeded with the implementation of Universal Robots in one of their CNC machines. The UR robot was easy to integrate and the company now has the luxury of having one man tending to two CNC machines at any one time - something previously impossible to achieve when all tasks relied heavily on manual labour.
