Through the manufacturing of individual parts and their mounting into assemblies, Wandfluh Produktions AG has been active for years in the automation of manufacturing processes. With a team of automation specialists with years of practical experience in this field, Wapro develops solutions for its customers, whether as special machines or based on an industrial robot. Depending on the quantities involved, such systems differ

mainly in their degree of automation. This is determined together with the customer to find the most efficient and cost-effective solution for the respective application. The many years of experience in this field and the possibility to design and manufacture the parts required for an automation solution in-house, result in cost-effective systems with short delivery times that are precisely adapted to customer requirements.

Project scope

Projects for automation systems range from simple mounting aids to fully integrated solutions with several workstations. The planning and construction phase depends strongly on the complexity of the required work steps on the installation. This phase may take up to several months. The implementation time, however, is then only a few weeks to months.
