We want to streamline and automate the process in our welding department, and therefore we installed two new welding robots. Our aim is to make the production flow even more efficient, to keep the wage share in the company as low as possible and at the same time preserve Danish jobs.
Guests from Blue Equity attended the start up of a new robot
The latest welding robot, supplied by Valk Welding in Holland, was mounted and started this week by factory manager Niels Grue Sandberg together with Jørgen Mads Clausen and Niels Duedahl, both members of the board in Blue Equity, which owns 70 procent of Bramidan A/S. It is the first of several welding robot systems fed semi-automatic and producing chambers for vertical balers. The system is flexible andhandles one unit production.

During the demonstration of the two new robots Jørgen Mads Clausen explained: ”It is a strategic decision to maintain Bramidan jobs in Denmark, and therefore it is necessary to automate with the latest technology.' And Niels Duedahl added: ”It is nice to see companies investing in local jobs – it is full of promise to the future of the region.”

Robot operators - a new job area within the company
CEO at Bramidan A/S, Henrik Dueholm Madsen is pleased with the investment and elaborates: ”We are in the process of upgrading our company to a modern production plant and look forward to delivering the machines that future customers demand, quickly and efficiently. Over the next couple of years we will invest in further robot technology, and therefore we will need more robot operators, a quite new job category at Bramidan.”
With the new flexible and adaptable factory, Bramidan extends its production platform in Denmark and continues to supply vertical balers worldwide.
The initiation and introduction of new welding robots was celebrated with grilled sausages from a hot-dog stand outside in the yard, which both guests and employees enjoyed under a blue sky and sunshine.
