Robotisation at Mifa: innovation and robots

At Mifa, we make a difference by using robots to accelerate and automate our production processes

Mifa has been investing in robotics for many years. As early as 2008, we built the first robot line. The robots in this line handle machine loading and product handling. Everything is measured fully automatically, and products are placed on various pallets. A few years later, in 2017, a second robot line followed. This line was entirely designed and set up by our own R&D department.

The difference of robotisation

Our robots act as full-fledged assistants in our factory. They assist with loading, measuring, and organizing. However, we believe that robots do not replace humans but primarily help and support us in our work. By taking on heavier, more straightforward tasks, our colleagues can focus on other activities. For example, taking products from a pallet and placing them on a table. In the current situation, an employee takes the product from a pallet, places it on the table, deburrs it, and then puts the product in another pallet. This process can be simplified by attaching a robot to pick up the product and place it on the table. The employee only needs to perform the deburring, and the robot places the product in the other pallet. This can significantly speed up the process. The employee also doesn’t need to bend down, lift heavy products, or perform other strenuous tasks. Robotisation makes the production process more efficient and creative.
