HAIGER/WÜLFRATH – Puky has always represented "unique safety" in children's vehicles. In the case of welding, the company has trusted in technologies by CLOOS for many decades. Recently, Puky put two new QR-CC-6 compact cells by CLOOS into operation where the QIROX robots weld the handlebars and frames for the children's bicycles. The use of the two new compact cells guarantee a high process reliability and an excellent product quality.
Puky GmbH & Co. KG has more than 68 years of experience in the development, construction and product of vehicles for children. Since its foundation in 1949, the company has steadily grown, at first with the brand name Puck and from 1956 on with the name Puky. With more than 110 employees at the headquarters in Wülfrath Puky produces more than 700,000 children's vehicles per year. The product range comprises small ride-on vehicles, tricycles and learner bikes as well as 24" bicycles. All vehicles are designed, constructed and produced in Germany.
Safety is the first priorityThe Puky vehicles have a high-quality, well-thought-out and child-friendly design. "Safety is our top priority", explains Florian Guss, Industrial Engineer at Puky. Thanks to the high quality standard, the Puky vehicles have a high resale value. To ensure the high product quality Puky has an own monitoring and test laboratory. Furthermore, the production is oriented at the Kaizen system with which the production processes are continuously optimised.
Automated welding with flexible compact cells Due to increasing quantities Puky has strongly invested in automated production technology for the last years. In the past, the vehicles were all welded manually. For the production of the bicycle handlebars and frames Puky now works with two QR-CC-6 QIROX compact cell by CLOOS. These are turnkey systems and dispose of a 2-station workpiece positioner with horizontal change and turning and swivelling movement. The loading area is protected by a lateral safety fence and a light barrier during the cycle. All robot and positioner axes are fully synchronised. This provides excellent welding results, reduces the secondary processing times and speeds the entire process run enormously.
