Automation of nut projection welding on sheet metal requires not only a robot that handles sheets, but also automatic feeding and positioning of the nuts. A nut separation and feeding system that allows an easy change between different nut types was not available on the market. The systems on the market allow nut separation and feeding for just one type of nut. However, these systems are only useful when large series have to be welded for the same nut, which is not the case at Malmar. Click on the link for more info.
Malmar and Sirris are working on the 'Reconfigurable Cobotic Production Assistant:RECOPRODAS', which will allow Malmar to automate repetitive and manual tasks.This way, operators can focus on improving quality and their work environment will become more human-centered. Read this blog post from Sirris to have a better understanding of our project.
Earlier this year, Malmar and Sirris joined forces to set-up project RECOPRODAS. RECOPRODAS is part of a sub-project that has indirectly received funding from the European Union's H2020 research and innovation program via an Open Call issued and executed under project TRINITY (grant agreement No 825196). With this wonderful news, it's our honour to introduce this project and to convince other SMEs of our solution to achieve a flexible production of smaller series.
Malmar to the rescue!
At the moment, all possible actions are being done to solve the crisis in the Suez Canal. It is no coincidence that the authorities use an excavator which is being assembled with strong parts from Malmar.
With the support of the Flanders Investment & Trade agency, Malmar was able to set-up a new website. This website highlights the transformation of Malmar from a typical supplier of metal components to a true supply chain partner.
Digital transformation is now more important than ever before. Discover how Malmar leverages on new technologies to stay ahead of the competition.
The supply chain is facing nowadays big challenges related to material availability and price pressure in various areas. Malmar was able to react fast and make sure that our customers are not impacted by these market volatilities.
Don't hesitate to reach out in case you need support for the delivery of your components!
Happy New Year!
"The tower was made possible thanks to the new bogie that can carry up to 38 tonnes."
PS: That new bogie was made possible by Malmar with the production of a new crossmember type.
