Unconventional Robotic Applications in Manufacturing: Road Bike Carbon Frame

These days, robotic applications are becoming popular in every aspect of manufacturing. Processes that were completely manual a couple of years ago are now becoming robotized. Two main reasons for robotizing a process are either to enhance productivity or to increase quality and repeatability. For the Swiss company, BMC, the robotic step was more a question of quality than productivity. This relatively young company was established in 1986 because of a crazy idea by Mr. Bob Bigelow. Back then, the Swiss businessman was manufacturing mostly commuting bikes. In 2001, the company decided to support a pro cycling team called PHONAK.
