The revolutionary cutting cell with four single saws enables customized cutting of individual panels. Behind this innovation is a concept that completely redefines the flow of parts in order-based production and enables customized cutting with series conditions.

  • Fully automated sequences

  • Automatic labeling of components

  • Great flexibility for the design in the length and width of the storage system

  • The installation of the cell can be varied depending on the feed direction

  • Automatic handling of offcuts

  • Unlimited recuts

  • Fully automated sequences and onward transport on two levels

The buffer system is used to isolate performance spikes in cutting and to adjust the material flow for edge processing. Smoothing out output fluctuations achieves a significant improvement of the overall availability. 

  • Material flow is equalized through buffer zones as well as the infeeds and outfeeds

  • Optimization of the material flow with options for sorting in layers

  • Optimal preparation of the edge processing through manipulation of the material order

  • Direct access to each shelf

  • Storage removal lists can be flexibly changed until the last panel

  • Option for infeed of workpieces that have been cut externally

The edge processing cell with four edge processing machines connected in series enables four-side processing in just one throughfeed. This edge cell provides smooth processes and is ideal for flexible batch size 1 production with maximum performance. 

  • Maximum performance with four edge processing machines

  • Four-side processing in just one throughfeed

  • High-performance feed systems and joint trimming

The production control system guarantees the performance and efficiency of the system concept. Batch size 1 production therefore depends on a higher-level intelligent production control system, alongside high-performance and flexible system concepts.

  • Transfer and feedback of production orders from and to the ERP system

  • Generation of production and optimization batches

  • Management of production-related master data

  • Rule-based generation of data records for edge processing

  • Edge preview & edge management

  • Completeness checks and indication of missing parts for production batch/customer order

  • Organization and prioritization of the reworking of defective components

  • Statistics and analyses regarding the error, cause, time and frequency

  • Universal concept for marking and identifying components using barcode

  • Universal network infrastructure and teleservice
