New Production Level 4 manufacturing center to expand existing plant
The new facility will include two production centers where business card cases are assembled, prepared, and then lasered and output. The integrated Flexible Transport System (FTS) is responsible for transport and quality control. Controlled via 5G technology, the FTS moves the goods produced from Station 1 (Assembly and Preparation) to Station 2 (Engraving and Output). The result is an individually labeled business card case with a QR code that can be accepted by the customer at the output point.
The “noppenstein” bricks are merely a placeholder, taking the place of any product. This part of the plant is the first step towards Production Level 4, according to our definition of autonomous production in the future. We will continue to develop the plant to demonstrate that we can technically implement our vision by 2025.
At the Assembly and Preparation (data-charging) station, the knobbed USB sticks are assembled according to the specification data and then checked in the quality control station In a final step, the product is compared again with the order data. Product transport from station to station is managed by a flexible logistics system supplied by Montrac.
