Up to 40% of your resources are still being allocated to non-value-adding activities. It doesn't have to be that way! Our intralogistics solutions enable you to automate your sheet metal processing efficiently, intelligently and flexibly. The foundation for this are unambiguous postings and digital mapping of your production. Discover our scalable solutions for an optimised material flow.

Boost overall productivity

By deploying your employees in a manner that adds value, you attain an optimal material flow and reduce the expensive time spent on searches.

Huge potential regardless of production size

Oseon's digital support already enhances the success of your production. Regardless of whether it's a small factory or a highly automated plant.

Gradually increase the degree of automation

Digital production control and clear processes are the first step towards networked production. It expands in line with requirements, with flexible docking stations, autonomous material interfaces and automated guided vehicles.

Increased predictability thanks to digitalised material flow

Make optimum use of your resources to ensure profitable sheet metal processing despite a shortage of skilled labour and increasingly dynamic markets.

Increased sales thanks to a digitalised material flow

Transparency and an improved factory flow increase your utilisation overall. All machines, processes, sequences and personnel play a role in this. Coordinate it all with solutions from TRUMPF.


In the office and mobile on the shop floor: use our Oseon software to manage inventory and material flow, control transport efficiently and as an interface for automated guided vehicles.


Lay the foundation for your transparent material flow with space-saving vertical storage areas, docking stations, manual and automated storage systems and automated guided vehicles – in cooperation with various manufacturers.


Appropriate to your company and project, we support you with analysis and simulation of your material flow, material flow consultation and planning, installation and commissioning of factory flow solutions and Initial Production Assistance.

Digitalise the material flow – create added value

Productivity and efficiency are important parameters for ensuring that your shop floor remains competitive in the long term. Unplanned additional effort interrupts the production flow and diminishes overall utilisation. This results in skyrocketing part costs - and makes profitable sheet metal processing more difficult.

From manual postings to a fully networked material flow

It's all about the optimum coordination of the order and material flows at every single workstation. Oseon minimises the time spent on bookings thanks to standardised processes. What happens if you have to schedule in a rush job? However, manual intervention is possible at any time. Our bespoke software simplifies your everyday working life. Open interfaces allow you to connect machines from different manufacturers. Use the configuration stage suitable for your company:

1. Do you want to post orders and material movements manually on the tablet or using a manual scanner?

  •  Easy to get started with tangible added value thanks to digital support from Oseon
  •  Digitalization of workstations, machines, stocks and non-automated transport
  •  Oseon web app provides a clear overview of what comes next

2. Do you want to plan, regulate and control non-automated or autonomous transports on your shop floor?

  •  Oseon sends transport orders to your staff automatically
  •  Docking stations support or replace your manual postings
  •  Mixed operation of manual and autonomous transport (AGV) possible

3. Do you want to carry out automated transports and automatically record postings at machines and docking stations?

  •  Oseon sends transport orders to an AGV, which performs the transport autonomously
  •  Docking stations, TRUMPF machine tools and digitally connected workstations (e.g. external machines and manual workstations) keep order and inventory information synchronised. This creates a transparent, uninterrupted material flow
  •  Networked material flow interfaces on the TruBendCell 5000 and STOPA Compact II storage system enable a fully autonomous material flow
  •  Mixed operation of manual transports (employees) and automated guided vehicles (AGV) possible

Modular solutions pave the way for you

1. Connection with buffer storage

If there is no space in the subsequent station, the system automatically plans the transport of the material to a predefined buffer.

2. Integrate manual workstations

With the help of docking stations, you can integrate dispatch, assembly and quality inspections, for example, in the digitally optimised material flow. The docking stations are modularly structured and available in different variants, for example as stations for the pallet cart or tracking station.

3. Integrate machines from any manufacturer in the material flow

Docking stations automate the material supply and disposal of all workstations on the shop floor.

4. Support of material deliveries to workplace groups

Production control and docking stations facilitate optimum working methods even for consolidated working areas.

5. Material flow control

The Oseon transport guide system is in charge of planning, control and management of the transports.

6. AGV connection

The openly designed AGV interface facilitates the control of non-automated transport as well as the simple and manufacturer-independent integration of automated guided vehicles.

7. Automated material flow

Docking stations automate material postings and serve as a link between automated planning, AGV and human interaction.

8. Control system for non-automated transport

As well as fully automated transports via AGV, the software can transfer instructions to personnel which then post the instructions directly onsite using a tablet.

Modular solutions pave the way to a smart material flow

Autonomous material flow thanks to automated guided vehicles (AGV)

Automated guided vehicle (AGV) systems use sensors to navigate accurately around the shop floor.

Your benefits:

  •  Fully or partially automated loading and unloading of machines
  •  Autonomous transport of semi-finished/finished parts to the next work step or to dispatch.
  •  Oseon controls the AGVs so that you can manage your entire factory flow system.
  •  Reduce your employees' workload so that they can focus on value-adding activities. Unattended shifts are made possible.
Docking stations: intelligent storage locations

Docking stations are storage locations which are networked by sensors and which simplify your factory flow. 

Your advantages:

  •  Automatic detection of the pallet ID and reporting of the status to Oseon. 
  •  Simplification of supply/retrieval of material.
  •  Integration of any workstations, machines or storage locations into the automated material flow.
  •  Modular availability, e.g. as pallet trolley or ground stations. Transports can be carried out manually or autonomously (via AGV).
Networked machine material flow interfaces – simple loading & unloading parallel to production

Intelligent material flow interfaces on the STOPA Compact II storage system and on the TruBend Cell 5000 enable automatic insertion & ejection of parts. 

Your advantages:

  •  Transports are coordinated by Oseon and can be carried out manually or via AGV.
  •  Automatic removal of semi-finished parts from storage with the STOPA logistics interface. Avoid waiting times for your employees.
  •  Automatic loading and unloading including postings and transport management of the TruBend Cell 5000. Using AGVs facilitates unattended production.

Good to know...

What is a factory flow?

The term "factory flow" denotes the in-house material and inventory flow: from the delivery of the material on the company property to production and storage to the point when the finished product leaves the building again.

Which functions does a factory flow fulfil?

The central task of the factory flow is the in-house flow of material. The material is delivered, runs through different production steps and is placed in intermediate storage. For dispatch, the products are no longer part of the factory flow and are transferred back to the external logistic processes.

How does an autonomous material flow work successfully?

Automation is the key to an autonomous material flow, also called factory flow 4.0. Manufacturing systems receive an order and independently request the necessary material. More and more, they coordinate their material supply directly with automated guided vehicles.

The success story of our customer Dax

"The material flow on the floor is working smoothly now." DAX is working more efficiently with TruTops Fab Logistics in combination with an automated guided vehicle system from Jungheinrich.

With the modular networking solutions from TRUMPF, we help our customers to create a continuous flow in their production facility, thereby arranging their entire production process with increased transparency, flexibility and cost-effectiveness within the framework of Industry 4.0.

Lot size of 1

No two production processes are the same, but one thing they all have in common is that lot sizes are decreasing. At the same time, delivery times are becoming shorter and shorter. We therefore have experts who go on-site to analyse processes and optimise them so that even lot sizes of 1 will be worthwhile.

Transparency – Keeping an overview in the Smart Factory

Networked production of the future requires new concepts for intralogistics, so that you always have total transparency over your shop floor. Read more about which TRUMPF solutions can provide you with unprecedented clarity.
