Workplace Solutions Days

Let's revolutionise cabinet building together!

Lack of specialists, increasing cost pressure, small lot sizes, short delivery times, increased need for documentation...
Are you looking for answers to these challenges? Let's enter into dialogue to raise the efficiency of your processes to the next level.

Identifying and tapping the potential of industry 4.0

The study “Panel building 4.0“ by the Institute for Control Engineering of Machine Tools and Manufacturing Units of the University of Stuttgart shows that the most time consuming phases in classic panel building are planning and installation.
More precisely: The steps of project planning and circuit diagram construction account for more than 50 % of the time spent on the entire planning process. During installation the complex combination of manual processes usually required for mechanical assembly and wiring account for over 70 % of the time spent on the assembly process!
