Production in Denmark:
The JUMBO Factory in Kolding, Denmark has been cutting
down the operating costs in large-scale production, through
the automation process which enables reduced production
time, and gives a flexible production.
We are using robot technology in our welding processes.
This technological equipment was implemented by ABB
and KUKA. Our welding robots and positioning workbenches
are all equipped with two workstations and pneumatic fastening
of work piece. Such configuration enables us to weld in an
uninterrupted cycle - the robot welds in one workplace, while
the operator positions a new work piece in another workplace.
We have implemented the Lean production principles.
This concept also includes effective arrangement of the
production workplaces, which brings many benefits
including the following:
- Higher labour efficiency

for the employees
