KMWE Precision in the Spotlight: Industry 4.0 Breakthroughs

Our recently published article in the leading German trade magazine Unter Span – Magazin zur Metallbearbeitung (page 12 and 13),  sheds a sharp light on the progress within the 4th Industrial Revolution. Through our participation in various Smart Industries projects, we have been able to make innovative developments in the field of Factory layout, Automation concepts and Planning & Scheduling.

 

Factory Layout:

Our move to Brainport Industries Campus (BIC) was the perfect opportunity to take a closer look at our Tool Service Center. Discover how simulation research has contributed to a more efficient layout, resulting in an optimized storage solution for future growth.

 

Automation Concepts:

Read about our research into different forms of automation for machining centers, where we explore strategies to minimize the footprint and optimize machine utilization. Discover why we ultimately opted for a local form with the option of expanding to a hybrid variant.

 

Planning & Scheduling:

In our pursuit of smart planning and prioritization within the high-mix, low-volume segment, we have explored new operating models. Discover how our developed genetic algorithm has achieved an improvement of no less than 26% compared to the current method.
