High quantities mean high consumption values and high personnel costs, right? Not in this project. Our customer, a well-known door manufacturer from the Netherlands, has taken the next step and modernized its production with us. In addition to a wide variety of machining operations and various assemblies on both the lock and hinge sides, all processes in this system are meaningfully linked by automation. Entirely without any cost-intensive interfaces between individual machines, the doors in our turnkey solution are detected, processed, assembled, cleaned, engraved and finally even palletized on an order basis depending on the type - and all of this at a cycle rate of up to 3.3 doors per minute!
At the same time, the sustainable and cost-optimized production was the focus of the concept. Thanks to the targeted selection of special drive systems, the door production machine now impresses with particularly low air & power consumption values, which are additionally supported by energy recovery mechanisms. Personnel costs are another point of long-term cost optimization: This shows once again that the devil is often in the details. Skillful automation has enabled time- and resource-intensive secondary processes, such as protective board handling, to be optimized and staff utilization to be significantly reduced. The door production line is rounded off by state-of-the-art control technology with parts traceability, linked to the customer's master computer system.
