When bicycle component business, Superstar Components decided to manufacture and control production from the UK, is purchased a turnkey package in the form of a FANUC Robodrill D21MiA5 machining centre and M-10iA 10M robot loading system.
Commenting on the purchase, company owner and director, Neil Wilkinson, said: "The Robodrill has taken Superstar Components from being a niche product manufacturer with a higher price point; to a company that can now manufacture pedals for other companies at prices comparable with Taiwan. We can do this whilst achieving significantly better quality levels. This is all down to the FANUC machine and its capabilities."
The cycle time for 600 pedals has been reduced from little over three weeks to just 3 days. Additionally, the labour input has gone from 3.5 weeks of staff time to just one hour per day.
