Five GCE NODE companies took part in the first edition of the Level-Up project. Project management recently visited Eaton Hernis for a follow-up.

“We are here to observe, analyze and report on how Eaton Hernis can make use of robotics and automation to improve work processes – and ultimately how this can improve profitability,” explains Bjørn Saltermark, Project Manager at GCE NODE.

A total of 16 companies participated in the Level-Up project in the last quarter of 2019. At Mechatronics Innovation Lab (MIL), the companies were introduced to the latest robot technology. MIL workshops included subjects such as smart production, sensors, machine vision, augmented reality, virtual reality, 3D scanning, artificial intelligence, big data and general robotics.

“Feedback from participating companies is very good. We are currently open for registration for the next group,” says Saltermark.

The project is funded by Stiftelsen Teknologiformidling. It is especially designed for small and medium-sized enterprises.
