A solution catalog for automation
Shortly after the visit of Gain & Co at Linatech, Martin Arberg received a concluding memorandum, which is the official document to round off the automation screening and mapping of the production company’s automation potential. And this made for an interesting read according to Martin Arberg.
“It was pleasant to have confirmation that we at Linatech have focused on appropriate processes and technologies. However, there was one conclusion in the memorandum which I had not expected. And this is why it makes sense to cooperate which specialists like Gain & Co, who have the correct background and necessary knowledge to select processes and robotic solutions while documenting their choices,” he says.
It was a process for plate bending, which Gain & Co had set as 2ndpriority in the concluding memorandum, which surprised Martin Arberg and made him re-evaluate the content of the next wave of automation at Linatech.
New projects underway
“I have recently forwarded the memorandum to our board, so we can review which investments make sense and which we should hold off on. We want to take specific initiatives when we develop Linatech, and for this, I can use the memorandum as a supporting document in my work leading the company,” says Martin Arberg.
He expects that it will take as much as 3 to 6 months before one or more of Gain & Co’s recommendations are implemented. Having his company reviewed systematically and received an expert look at its flow and processes has been both an exciting and necessary exercise.
“With the memorandum in hand, we are in a strong position to optimize our company so we can become even more competitive and reach the targets we have set. We will pursue further automation when the time is right, so we all are prepared and can handle the changes that automation unavoidably will bring.”
”Med konklusionsnotatet i hånden står vi stærkt ift. at effektivisere vores virksomhed, så vi kan blive endnu mere konkurrencedygtige og nå de mål, vi har sat os for. Vi trykker på den næste automationsknap, når tiden er rigtig, så vi alle sammen er med og kan håndtere de forandringer, som automation uvægerligt medfører.”
