Smart robot picks 500 parts every hour – case study

Meet Elmer, the smart robot that picks 500 parts every hour with Pickit's help.

Adam Wiltsie, plant manager at Vanamatic company, had 30 people cycle through a CNC operation in a year. It got increasingly hard to keep people in these positions, as labor shortage is high and people prefer doing value-added tasks rather than the same repetitive motions all the time.

Vanamatic is a family-owned company active in the automotive, aerospace, and general fittings industry. They've been around for 65 years and recently got into automation. The latest addition to their team was Elmer: their fourth Universal Robot and the first to use a Pickit system. With the help of Pickit, Vanamatic automated a complex and labor intensive application.
