TruConnect. Your Smart Factory.
No matter whether you are already making great strides into the networked future of your company or you are just starting out – the aim is clear: to be able to deal with continuously increasing complexity and falling lot sizes in sheet metal processing. With a strong, qualified partner by your side, it is easier for you to move forward on this path. No matter whether you are a pioneer or a novice – we will support you. With our innovative TruConnect range of solutions, you can realize your Smart Factory step by step. No two paths are the same here because TruConnect combines individual components for you in order to create customized solutions.
What is Industry 4.0?
The world of work is changing toward digitization
We are in the midst of the fourth industrial revolution – the digital transformation. It is fundamentally changing our life, world of work, and even sheet metal processing. New networking solutions that provide enormous optimization potential are being created daily. They combine different components within a production facility and beyond. The factory of the future optimizes procedures for the long term and drastically shortens processes. What path will you take into the world of networked production?
The trend is toward small lot sizes
Increasing individualization is changing industry. Large lot sizes are a thing of the past. Today, variance is increasing and lot sizes are decreasing, resulting in numerous different orders with small quantities. However, the outlay for the upstream and downstream working steps remains the same in many companies. In fact, indirect processes make up around 80% of the production time. This is where the highest potential for optimization can be found. Our TruConnect range of solutions can help you to optimize indirect processes. This means that you are optimally equipped for Industry 4.0.
