Smart Factory Planning

No detours on the road to your Smart Factory

Regardless of whether you would like to implement changes to your existing production, plan a new hall or develop a completely new sheet metal processing production – we are at your side from the initial idea to implementation. Our team will carry out the necessary analyses, devise ideal and real planning concepts as well as the phased approach needed for implementation. For any specific questions, we have strong partners at hand who complete the consultation service for you.

No matter where you are – we will get it done together

Decreasing lot sizes and increasing variance intensify the complexity in industrial manufacturing. Most sheet metal processors do not question the fact that networked processes can provide relief. But what is the best way to approach process optimization? Lest you put off "project future" for too long: get an experienced sparring partner who already understands the sheet metal process chain.

We are ready for a reorganization

... we would like to get ready for it in the best possible way

We are growing

... and we need additional production capacity.

We would like to reorientate our production

... manage the processes better and use existing capacities in the best possible way.

Where do we begin with planning

... a comparison with other companies would be helpful.

We need a sparring partner

... for far-sighted planning.

Everyone is talking about the Smart Factory

... but do not have any resources for that internally.

It was important to us that the consultants were not just viewing everything through the blue and white TRUMPF filter. That would not have helped us. Several of our machines are from TRUMPF, but not all of them. Only their promise to carefully examine all of the machines, technologies and processes in the production line tipped the scales, helping us decide for the "factory planning" service.

I chose the new "factory planning" service provision from TRUMPF, which included a young and committed consultancy team with extensive expertise in different specialist fields.

Tomas Loh
CEO of LoKa

Working with professionals saved us a lot of diversions and distractions. In addition, the analyses and perspectives of the Smart Factory team gave us completely new insights and approaches which will be useful for our production planning in future as well.

Matthias Kroll
CEO of LoKa

We are very competent internally regarding our products and the related production technologies, however we simply lack the know-how in process optimization, factory planning and automation This is why we have tapped into TRUMPF's expertise.
