Partnership TEGEMA and Arkite a fact! Joint ambition for local production of European Quality at Chinese costs
Today’s manufacturing world is changing rapidly. Increase of variety of products, economic protectionism and exchange rate fluctuation all have a disruptive effect on our production. At the moment, Corona really has a disruptive effect on production, it shows dependence on production. Today it is necessary to produce local for local. Despite the higher labor costs in the Netherlands, TEGEMA has answers on how to achieve this in a competitive way. With methods like LEAN, LCIA, Industry 4.0, and the right technology, it is possible to make products locally against competitive cost and high quality. The technology of Tegema and Its partners like Arkite can give you a real competitive edge! At the same time it helps to maintain an inclusive society by providing work for everybody.
Arkite has developed an operator support system where assembly employees receive the right instructions at exactly the right time. In addition, these instructions are projected on or next to the product. The sequence of the assembly process is indicated to the employee. To avoid mistakes, the parts to be taken are illuminated with the aid of a projector. If nevertheless a faulty part is picked, this will be detected by means of a 3D sensor and the employee will receive an optical and / or auditory signal. Application of this technique has many advantages: Shortening the learning time to a few minutes, significant cost reduction through error-free assembly, increasing the quality level (200ppm is achievable), a fixed working sequence, less work stress for your assembly employees.
