Abstract

New World Domestic Appliances has completed a £4.5 million project to automate and integrate the manufacturing processes of its gas cooker assembly. This represents the first phase of an overall scheme designed to make the company's Warrington site the most advanced domestic appliance manufacturing facility in Europe. In this, automation technology is being employed to reduce product costs, improve manufacturing flexibility and implement stringent quality controls. Fundamental to the automation programme is the development of robot systems by New World in partnership with ABB Robotics.
