Suzhou Kangli elevator door panel WEMO line

Robots challenge high-tac production lines

12 seconds! The maximum stroke of the robot is more than 5 meters! Challenging the WEMO line of elevator door panels known for its high tempo and high stability, the STEP robot has proved its strength over time.

Coming back from the CANNY Elevator, I can’t help but think of the ferocity from the thunderous stamping to the spot welding of the reinforcing ribs, which is as ferocious as the tempering of real gold; Remove the door panel from the bracket and put it down gently, which is no less gentle than nursing a swaddled baby. From an ordinary steel plate to the elevator door panel that welcomes and sees us off every day, what has been experienced in the middle is the fusion of iron and fire, and the tempering of wisdom and strength.

After going through 9 processes, a door panel comes off the production line every 12 seconds. STEP robots are busy at the production line transfer, rib loading, door panel hanging, and door panel removal. 4 production line workers per shift produce 2,400 door panels , running more than 300 days a year, it is this speed and efficiency that help CANNY Elevator rank among the top ten elevator manufacturers in the world.



Reducing people is not our goal, but improving quality and efficiency is the goal

"Globally, the elevator market is in a stage of rapid growth, and the trend of concentration of production capacity to leading enterprises is taking shape. Canny's production capacity bottleneck needs to be broken through urgently. Products with high standardization and large batches such as elevator door panels need to be introduced High-tempo, high-quality intelligent and automated production line. The head of the door panel workshop pointed to the long queue of large trucks in the delivery area and said, "Our orders have increased by 40% this year, and it is expected to increase next year. The robots deployed three years ago The door panel line, the workshop has already used it proficiently and is ready to meet new challenges.”

Minister Xi also said that compared with before the automatic production line, the total number of workers in the door panel workshop has basically not decreased, but the production capacity and product quality have improved significantly, the work intensity of workers has decreased, and employee satisfaction and sense of gain have increased. Especially for the spraying station that is tested by high temperature, the station near the oven in summer exceeds 40 degrees, and the efficiency of people is very low. Now it is different, the order is digitized, and the accuracy of the order is improved. As soon as the button is turned on, the forklift will feed the material, and the work of the workshop workers will be much easier. In short, reducing people is not our goal, but improving quality and efficiency is the goal. "
