The solution delivered to Thise includes two Kawasaki robots. The robots are installed in order to pack and palletise orders. According to Jens Møibæk, these two work processes used to be fully manual before BILA’s solution was installed.
Arla Slagelse has invested in a BILA Flex for palletising cardboard boxes with 1 l milk cartons. This palletising used to be manual and required two employees.
Over the years, Arla Foods’ dairy in Birkum has been experiencing more and more problems with heavy lifting, monotonous repetitive work and production flow challenges. In the past, cheese cups used to be manually packed in boxes and cartons, as a result of which the employees involved had to repeat the same movements all day long.
A machine for packing/stacking trolleys two in two to save space. A small moveable cell which can be connected to 230 V and which, via a simple control, rotates and stacks trolleys so they take half the space they used to.
BILA Milkpacker for effective handling of milk cartons in dairies. A solution for packing different types of cartons in trolleys, both loose and in packs of 10 or 12 cartons of 1/4, 1/2 or 1 litre.
The customer wanted a solution where, after two cooling basins, the cheese was transported to two packing machines and packed in 2.3 and 9.2 kg blocks respectively.
Bila A/S' solution Kawasaki robot FD050. FD050 is a very efficient four-axis robot with a lifting capacity of 50 kg including tools. This makes it a fast palletising robot that can ensure a large capacity flow with accompanying base and suction tool.
The solution for Dugnaden is a fully automated system with AVG operation. In other words, the previous completely manual order management has become automatic.
Bremnes Seashore is a salmon processing plant with salmon farming and production. The company has 270 employees in 23 different locations in Norway transporting between 150 and 250 tonnes of salmon to different parts of the world every day.
Shrimp production of different shrimp products which are packed, mixed and palletised with the help of Kawasaki robots.
Danpo Aars wanted to automate the palletising process in its bulk packing facility in order to free more space, improve the physical working environment and reduce labour costs.
For a long time DK Foods has wanted to improve the efficiency of the part of its production that concerns the moving of sausages and pepperoni. This used to be a manual process with high labour costs and physical working environment characterised by repetitive and monotonous work and heavy lifting.
The system consists of 2 robotic cells for automatic assembly of covers and terminal covers of electricity meters. The items that have to be installed on the meters are inserted into the robotic cell by automatic overhead doors and placed by the operators in pallet fixtures.
The working environment and increased efficiency are Unik Møbler's top priorities. Production automation has reduced the physical strain on employees thanks to which they avoid heavy lifting and monotonous, repetitive work. As part of the automation process, the company has decided to implement robotic cells in the production process.
Robot position 1 handles the items from position "on pallet” to position “on time delivery”. The thickness gauge inspects the item (final method determined after test). The feeder moves the item forward at a certain pace, adapting the stroke length and press.
The solution was a Kawasaki industrial robot with a special lifting tool. The Kawasaki robot is equipped with a tool which can lift 3 GLAVA insulation packs at a time. It puts 12 packs of insulation on a pallet, which is then wrapped by a Cyklop machine.
Hydrema has purchased a BILA RobotPower for their chip removal unit where they make components for their construction equipment, amongst other things. Thanks to its simple programming BILA RoboPower is a very user-friendly robotic cell.
KAMF is a typical subcontractor that processes many different items often in small batch volumes. For this reason, their investment in a BILA RoboPower is perfect for servicing their CNC machine, a job previously done manually by an employee.
BILA A/S' solution to the project was a robot facility consisting of a robotic cell with a Kawasaki FS10L robot. FS10L is a six-axis handling robot with a lifting capacity of 10 kg and a reach of 1,850 m used for automatic handling of items.

In this case BILA delivered an automation solution for handling foundation bolts for the wind turbine industry. Before the implementation of the solution 4-5 people handled the production, but now the job is done by 2 robots controlled by one person.
