Complete Linear-Automation Package Ideal for IntegratorsMarch 27, 2019
Machine in a Box is AP&T’s concept for linear robots built from standard components and delivered in complete packages for rapid installation by inhouse or contracted integrators. As explained by AP&T officials, in this arrangement, the integrator is responsible for project management and sales, while AP&T delivers the automation equipment.
“With the integrator’s specification as a base, we produce a product based on our modular system of standard components,” says Martin Sahlman, AP&T product manager-automation. “This allows us to reduce lead times from order to delivery, and ensure that the end customer obtains a reliable, tested and quality-assured machine from a local integrator.”
The capability is important for the company, as “our automation products are more than just key components in AP&T’s newly manufactured production lines,” says Sahlman. “More than half of the machines we sell are used for automation of both new and older production solutions, or they are installed in material handling systems by local integrators.”
The Machine in a Box service is sold in the United States and Europe.
