FBT Feinblechtechnik is a flexible job shop in the sheet metal processing industry. With its machinery in Brandenburg, the company focuses on laser cut parts, edge parts and welded assemblies made from stainless steel, aluminium, copper and brass of up to 5 mm. In order to be able to react more flexibly to customer orders and produce more quickly in the future, FBT dared to take the first step towards a Smart Factory with TRUMPF as their partner – with measureable successes.
