Benteler International AG
About The Customer
Benteler International AG is active in business divisions Automotive, Steel Pipes and Distribution and employs 28,000 people at 170 locations in 38 countries.
The Challenge

Benteler has a small pipe business area for which they produce fuel lines and coolant lines made of aluminum for Porsche and other car manufacturers. One of the problems in production was that when Benteler added new products, production had too much downtime.

The Solution

ABB presented RobotStudio as the solution. Engineers can use RobotStudio for offline programming using real-time data to test alternatives without shutting down production. Using RobotStudio, engineers can simulate real-world situations to identify problems with a new robot design. If problems exist, they can be addressed before the tool is actually made of steel and iron. RobotStudio is also used to create macros and to model welding, gluing, and image processing procedures.

Data Collected
Asset Status Tracking, Downtime, Fuel Levels, Maintenance Requirements, Production Efficiency
Operational Impact
  • [Process Optimization - Real Time Asset Tracking]
    The location of individuals and assets can be identified in near real-time and integrated into process simulations.
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Production Uptime]
    Simulation and debugging of production processes related to new tools are possible without shutting down production.
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Installation]
    Technicians are able to query instruments remotely during commissioning to confirm device functionality.
