Quick startup after power failure

Among Technicon’s customers you will find e.g. Danish Elos Medtech, which at its factory in Gørløse, North Zealand develops and markets advanced medical equipment that contributes to promoting human health all over the globe.

The company, which has just celebrated its 50th anniversary, continuously invests in flexible automation, and i.a. Elos Medtech has invested in several UR5 robots.

In autumn 2020, Elos Medtech was exposed to a power failure. When the power returned, it turned out that 2 of the UR5 robots could not restart. Automation engineer Mikkel Kjellberg at Elos Medtech investigated the cause. After a few attempts to solve the problem himself, Mikkel called Technicon, who immediately sent a service technician out to look at the problem.
