Even lot sizes of 1 are profitable | TRUMPF
Keyvisual lot size 1

Orders are becoming smaller and smaller – down to lot sizes 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 analyze processes and optimize them so that even lot sizes of 1 will be worthwhile.

You can save a lot – exploit your potential!

It's all about the big picture

We know from experience that sheet metal fabricators often lack transparency concerning order status, capacities, or workload. The manual coordination and consultation outlay is also high and prone to error. In order to work more cost-efficiently and reduce throughput times, indirect processes also have to be optimized. From quotation to shipment of the parts, we create a flexible and consistent entire system with you.

Every order is profitable – whether big or small

Warum vernetzt fertigen?

For one hour of processing time, there are around four hours of indirect operation – the outlay for indirect processes increases at a considerable rate for increasingly smaller lot sizes. This is because they make up around 80% of all processes. This presents an opportunity for networked production. If you are able to adapt the outlay for indirect processes to the decreasing lot sizes, even lot sizes of 1 are profitable again.

Why are lasers the perfect 4.0 tool?

Laser in the cutting process

Fast, direct, flexible – digitalization needs a tool that is just like yourself

In a Smart Factory, for example, workpieces are given a data matrix code, which the system can use to determine the path the part is to take through the system and how it is to be processed. Transport systems and processing stations comply with specifications. For this to work, production needs a highly flexible, easily controllable tool, like the laser. The codes themselves are applied by a marking laser and are clearly readable on any surface by using camera-supported image processing during the marking process. The code contains all necessary information for further processing and traceability.
