The producer of what is known as one of the world’s most famous scooter explains the use of robotics to ensure the reliability of its manufacturing processes.
Daniele Landini, Piaggio Technologies manufacturing manager, says that the welding of the Vespa body is a special process and, therefore, requires extreme attention in terms of planning and implementation. “The body, after all, is the heart of a Vespa and needs the maximum attention from a technological standpoint,” he says. “This is why robotics and their subsequent reliability influence the reliability of the process.” Landini added: “The welding process is automatic, leaving for workers the sole duty of loading the components and making sure that they are properly connected to the system and equipment.”
