First Welding Robot in Malaysia

Engineering Aids. Sdn. Bhd. is one of the earliest companies in Malaysia to introduce a wide range of semi-auto welding machines to local SMIs (Small and Medium Industries) and the first to exhibit welding robots in a public exhibition in the country. We are also the first company to install welding robots for local SMIs with in-house capability to service welding robots and capability to conduct R & D on robotic welding applications for SMIs in Malaysia, propelling us to be a leader in welding technology and system applications in Malaysia. Since then, we have expanded to include robotics systems for other applications in areas such as bending, grinding, palletizing and handling to complement our primary welding products and services.

Sole Distributor of Panasonic Welding Machines and Robots in Malaysia

As the leading welding robotics company in Malaysia and Singapore, Engineering Aids Sdn. Bhd. has committed itself to serve our customers with the best technical support and applications of welding systems since the beginning of our establishment in 1978. We have managed to overcome numerous challenges and obstacles since our founding to become one of the leading welding robotics company in the country, and with our technical knowledge, experience of more than 40 years and the unwavering support of our principals Panasonic Factory Solutions Co., Ltd. and Nanjing Estun Automation Company, we will continue to uphold our standards and provide the best products and services.

Experience

As we reach our 42nd year of business operations, Engineering Aids Sdn Bhd has been at the forefront of welding technology systems and we hope to receive the continuous support of our customers and clients in our effort to find and create more solutions for various industries. Similarly, though currently a little short on experience in robotics systems of other applications, our effort in finding solutions with these systems will be as tenacious to achieve our very high standards.

Benefits of Robotics for Business

High Return on Investment

Although the initial cost of investing in a robot may be high compared to other labour intensive systems, many research studies have shown that the Return on Investment can be very high depending on the production rate and the subsequent rate of return from operations far exceeds manual operations. A normal high productivity lifespan of 7 to 10 years ensures maximum returns before technological improvements create upgrades for machines with improved capabilities and returns. After 7 years does not automatically make a machine unserviceable.

24/7 Operation

One of the biggest benefits of utilizing robots in your factory is its capability to operate 24/7. This capability gives the factory the flexibility to manufacture more products (within limits) and to switch between products. With experience, the turnaround time can be greatly reduced.

Increased Production Speed and Precision

Robotic equipment in general can operate faster and are more precise than human labour. In addition, robotic equipment is highly flexible and can be customized to perform more complex functions and many kinds of different tasks.

Creation of Skilful Jobs

Contrary to popular belief, implementing robotic equipment into a business is a way to up the skills of a factory’s labour force either by new employees with a higher skill set or retraining the current employees to operate these robots. Upgrading the skill set of a labour force is one of the ways to keep a factory’s production relevant in the current rapid changes in the job market.

Productivity

Applying robotic equipment into your business will create efficiencies in all areas of your production line. Some key tasks may require human labour, but robots are delegated to handle the heaviest, dirtiest, least appealing and dangerous of tasks with human labour operating and supporting the robots’ work. The precision of the robots will increase productivity while reducing rejects due to defects.

Safer Work Environment

Implementing robots will create an overall safer work environment, with robots handling the most of heavy lifting and other dangerous tasks. Factories with a much safer work environment can be created for the employees if implemented well.
