What is KARAKURI
It is a remarkable methodology that helps improve productivity and reduce company costs. This technique comes from Japan, in literal translation means "skilful mechanisms", and one of the first karakuri was used in a puppet theater. The goal of modern karakuri in industrial applications is to reduce standard time, reduce runtime fluctuations, reduce rebuilding time and improve ergonomics, which, after successful implementation, leads to cost savings.
In our environment it is a simple automation system without the use of sensors, servomotors, etc. By using lean manufacturing pipes, their accessories and manufactured parts, simple tilting racks, slides, lifts, etc. can be created using only gravity, human strength, springs.
When designing the system, there is a big financial savings for the assembly made (expensive electrical components are not used) and savings are made in the actual operation.
