Growth rates of 10 to 20 percent per year drive established processes at DAX to their limits. Handling small parts in particular puts the brakes on production. To remain competitive even with these simple parts, this effort must be reduced still further.
The CEO Frank Schmitz is not satisfied with the simple connection of the TruLaser 3040 with a large-scale fully automatic storage system: "The large-scale storage system concept as a standalone solution does not convince me." I believe complete dependence on this system would restrict our flexibility too much." His ears pricked up when the Smart Factory Consultants from TRUMPF suggested a combination of a large-scale storage system and the new intralogistic solution, TruTops Fab Logistic. The option of integrating even machines and workstations located outside of the large-scale storage system in the automated material flow tipped the scales in favor of a decision for the holistic solution from TRUMPF.
