Finally, Netafim, Ltd. was able to increase speed and precision performance significantly (25%) for their drip irrigation parts test and assembly system; giving rise to a broad range of products and solutions ideally suited to agriculture, greenhouses, and the mining industry. These increases in productivity were achieved via combining WEISS’s TO 750 direct drive rotary indexing table and HP 140 linear motor Pick-and-Place units to complete the precise, smooth running system.
Through close cooperation between WEISS, Innovative, and Netafim, the first system was successfully implemented and repeat orders soon followed. In fact, four identical test and assembly stations are currently at work in Israel.
According to Innovative’s Dale Beaver, "Ultimately, the engineers from Netafim were impressed by the quality that WEISS delivers. And for WEISS, close cooperation with customers has always been a key part of the company philosophy. After all, the company sells complete solutions and not just components."
