The Spanish plant of the French multinational group TBI, which specialises in the manufacture of technical precision parts through mono-material, bi-material and tri material injection moulding, has installed two MiR200™ for the internal transport of materials and has thus managed not only to improve the productivity of production operators but also to increase the number of injection machines in the space saved. The two robots travel approximately 100 km per month and have enabled the company to assign two warehouse technicians to higher-value tasks in the distribution area.
