The machine manufacturer Ålö AB, headquartered in Umeå, Sweden, makes multi-million (SEK) investment in new robotic technology. In connection with the investment, in what could be Sweden’s most modern robotic facility outside the automotive industry, Ålö chose to invest in the production monitoring system AXXOS OEE.
“We are making a comprehensive upgrade to our overall production. To remain at the forefront in a competitive market, we will measure, monitor and continuously improve the production in the new equipment with AXXOS OEE.” says Joakim Lundin, Project Manager, Global Manufacturing Engineering, Ålö.
Initially the production monitoring system will be installed on four robotic cells for welding, with 9 measuring points. There are plans to install AXXOS OEE on more machines in the facility.
“It’s exciting to get the opportunity to collaborate with a progressive company such as Ålö. With AXXOS OEE they will quickly acquire a good basis for improvement strategies and we confidently look forward to our continued collaboration”, says Thomas Dahlgren, Key Account Manager AXXOS Industrial Systems.
Ålö is one of the world’s leading suppliers in the agricultural machinery industry. With sales companies in 7 countries, factories in four countries and customers in more than 50 countries, Ålö accounts for 30 per cent of the world market in the segment for tractors with engines more powerful than 50 hp. As of 2016, Ålö employs approximately 690 employees. Sales in 2015 amounted to around 35,000 loaders and 42,000 implements for a total value of SEK 1,900 million.
