Flexible manufacturing:
Flexibility and productivity working in harmony

Batch size 1 and individualized mass products are the key words of Industry 4.0. To make this a reality, a machine or plant must be able to handle variable product infeed and adapt to different formats. Sensors and actuators make such an adaptation possible. Any product size and shape can be produced flexibly on one machine.  

We are shaping Industry 4.0 together with our customers. Our solutions can be extended to Industry 4.0 functions step by step. Our wide range of products and solutions allows us to generate many different possibilities and methods of creating the foundation for more flexible processes.
This involves the concepts of digitization, intelligence, and networking, which will enable production and logistics systems to optimize and control themselves autonomously.
Intelligent sensor technology goes hand in hand with a new standard of quality in flexibility. This technology makes it possible to collect production data in real time – an opportunity to optimize machines and plants that has barely been touched.
