TRUMPF Smart Factory in Ditzingen

The intelligent factory at TRUMPF's headquarters

High order density in ever decreasing time frames, a reduction in lot sizes – just two challenges of a modern world of production. But how does it work on a shop floor with a fast, flexible and completely transparent production? In Ditzingen we will show you how! The Smart Factory offers small and medium-sized companies a realistic insight into fully networked and flexible sheet metal processing. Experience how people and machines work together hand in hand – supported by intelligent systems, from part transport to working on the machine. You will see for yourself how our solution always starts with your challenge. Whether it is due to the TRUMPF machine apps, ergonomic handling or simple programming – the machines lay the foundation for a networked future. Visit us and see for yourself!

Experience Industry 4.0 live in action here

What does the Smart Factory in Ditzingen have to offer? We will show you the fully automated areas for autonomous production – including automated guided vehicle systems – as well as the support artificial intelligence provides when sorting metal parts and how tablets and smart watches assist with material movement and order overviews. We will demonstrate how partner machines for deburring and quality control effortlessly play their part in the Smart Factory. Intelligent TRUMPF monitoring and analysis software ensure complete transparency of orders, materials or productivity so that you do not lose the overview of your shop floor.

1. Control Center

This is where the various strands come together. All orders are generated, controlled and can be experienced live in action in the Control Center. Track&Trace facilitates complete transparency and localisation of the individual orders throughout the entire shop floor. Put us to the test!

2. Application Center

You experience the variety of metal and tubes here. We provide advice for part design in terms of design, production time and cost efficiency. Your options and your production take centre stage.

3. AI-supported sorting

The Sorting Guide provides assistance to the operator directly at the laser cutting machine during the sorting procedure. After removing a part from the sheet, the parts which belong to this order are marked in colour in a screen. See for yourself how artificial intelligence increases the efficiency at the interface between the laser cutting machine and the factory flow.

4. Smart material flow

Up to 40% of valuable resources are still being allocated to non-value-adding activities. There is a better way: you will optimise your shop floor and therefore the entire production with a transparent material flow and automated guided vehicle systems.

5. Autonomous production

Within the Smart Factory area, we will demonstrate autonomous processes – four machines and one large-scale storage system work together, independent of technologies, within fully automated systems. We also supply our own in-house TRUMPF machine production with real parts for production here.

6. Integration of partner machines

Smart procedures are only possible if everyone is getting along: this is why TRUMPF opens its doors and forms cooperation partnerships. This means that we can get the best out of all of the systems for your solution.

7. Networked processing cell for the sheet metal process chain

Procedural progress, utilisation, malfunction – all status data and status information can be called up in real time. It is possible to analyse the entire production with this data to make it easy to detect inefficiencies and bottlenecks. But that's not all! Machines and machine apps actively help the operator process the orders.
