Automated Production Systems

Automated Production Systems

The focus of our company is on automation and digitalization. In close cooperation with our customers, we develop and realize both automated individual machines and complete production lines for the natural stone, artificial stone and ceramics industries.

From Planning to Commissioning

For us, automation means reducing manual intervention in production, such that highly qualified specialists can focus on the core business of their companies. We achieve this increased degree of automation through the linking of different machines via logistics and transport systems, as well as the combination of previous single machines into integrated machine concepts. We have the know-how for optimum material flow and integrated automatic storage systems for raw plates and buffer storage. From project planning to commissioning, our specialists will accompany you every step of the way.

The Optimal Solution in Focus

Automation is increasingly indispensable for companies of all sizes. In fact, there is no manual intervention in our large production plants today, i.e. the workpiece passes through all processing steps (saw, water jet, machining center) automatically, without the need for manual intervention. Yet automation is also progressively important for small- and medium-sized businesses. Especially in times of a shortage in skilled workers, every company must endeavor to utilize its employees profitably and to relieve them of unnecessary or mundane activities. That is why we also offer optimal solutions for small- and medium-sized businesses. Our modular machine concept allows for a step-by-step expansion without squandering the earlier investments made.

Automation and Software

The advanced level of automation is also reflected in our software. We use the same interface on all machines, such that operators can easily navigate across machines. The control of the manufacturing process is typically done centrally via a higher level production planning system. Through the use of workpiece imaging and clear workpiece identification by means of barcodes, customer-specific orders can be individually produced and the end product can be simulated in advance. For more complex work, the machining process can also be simulated in advance. We are happy to advise you on the best solution for your company.
