The strategic aim was to complete the entry into the high-performance picker technology in 2007. A complete development robot cell which can transport products in a cycle was built. As a result, much experience regarding detection and clamping tools for different products has been gained.
The shortage of skilled workers does not only concern Switzerland. German packaging companies are also looking for qualified technicians and engineers - however, frequently unsuccessfully. For this reason, the packaging machinery company Transnova Ruf relies on its own model for training skilled workers - which might be worth emulating.
Transnova Ruf, a manufacturer of packaging, palletising and robot technology, now has a new website. The web appearance of the Ansbach contract manufacturer is based on the latest web standards. The navigation of the Transnova Ruf GmbH website was restructured for the relaunch. A layout which should be as clearly structured as possible and intuitively accessible takes account of the increased requirements regarding the fast provision of information - according to managing director Dr. Klaus-Peter Ruf. With the Typo3 editorial system, the Ansbach-based company has adopted a flexible and free content management system. The Open Source solution used facilitates maintenance by internal editors, optimisation possibilities for search engines and the sustainability of the system, explained Udo Vonderlindern, owner of the internet agency which has supported the project.
After investment release, packaging projects become increasingly complex, while the implementation periods become shorter and shorter. Therefore, competent advice with technical know-how by the sales service is of decisive importance in the run-up to the project. Dr. Klaus-Peter Ruf, owner and managing director of Transnova Ruf, realised this early on as one of the most important factors for success.
Bayer-Schering Pharma, Berlin, placed a turnkey order for the delivery of a packaging and palletising plant for active agents in glass bottles with Transnova-RUF. The special aspect of this order was that the relatively complex requirement had to be resolved with a concept which offers a quick and simple format changeover, in addition to the general GMP requirements.
