Putting robotics to work
Mabey has put its new robots to work at its Mabey Bridge site in Lydney, Gloucestershire. Forming one complete cell, the new robots support the manufacture of the Mabey Compact 200 (C200) – the world’s most widely used modular steel bridge.
Investing £2.6m in the new robots, they will enable Mabey’s C200 bridging system to be manufactured more quickly, safely and efficiently, halving the manufacturing time for the C200’s panels and chords.
Michael Treacy, Chief Executive of Mabey Bridge, said: “Our investment demonstrates our commitment to accelerating own manufacturing and construction processes. Significantly, the robots reduce manual lifting and handling while ensuring the quality, and consistency of our products – all part of our broader aim to maintain a faster, safer and more efficient way of working.”
