More transparency and efficiency with assembly segmentation
The basic prerequisite for an ideal assembly system is structuring and segmenting the assembly according to requirements. For this purpose, we analyze your assembly processes, product structures and material flows and structure the assembly according to your individual requirements. For example, we are investigating the potential of subdividing assembly into several pre-assembly areas in order to reduce complexity and throughput time and to increase efficiency through a high degree of specialization of the workstations. Based on your specific initial situation, we work with you to develop a segmentation concept that creates optimal structural conditions for meeting market and customer requirements. In the process, we also identify and analyze the interfaces between the individual assembly segments. With the aim of permanently guaranteeing security of supply and keeping inventory and space costs low, we work with you to develop customized buffer and provisioning strategies for ideal interlinking of the assembly areas in your production.
Creation of assembly concepts in line with requirements
The right assembly concept for your production
Whether it is efficiency-driven flow assembly, highly flexible island assembly, or stationary bound construction site assembly – the ideal design form of an assembly concept depends heavily on individual parameters and company-specific conditions such as product variance, product size, processing times, or the required production output. In addition to the realization of proven assembly principles, new, innovative concepts can also be developed from their combination and modification. This includes, for example, modular assembly, which represents an intelligent networking of line and island production and thus combines the advantages of the two basic concepts into a highly flexible and efficient solution approach. Discover together with us how you can ideally align your assembly concept with your internal circumstances as well as customer and market requirements.
Ergonomic and efficient workplace design
Design of assembly workstations: Ergonomic, efficient, digital.
Despite advancing digitalization and automation, humans will continue to play a central role in assembly systems in the future. The adaptation of assembly workplaces to the individual needs of employees is therefore a key success factor. The ergonomic adaptation of assembly workstations enables fatigue-free and health-promoting work and makes a decisive contribution to employee motivation and health. Short reach distances, good accessibility of the tools and the stringent implementation of the 5S principles also lead to an increase in the performance and work quality of the employees. Assistance systems such as exoskeletons or collaborative robots can further support employees in the physical performance of their physical activities. In addition, intelligent pick-by-light systems, augmented reality applications, digital assembly instructions or automated quality checks via camera offer further potential for efficiently supporting employees in their assembly tasks.
Find out together with us how you can optimally design your assembly workplaces and thus increase efficiency, quality and employee satisfaction.

Resource planning and capacity consideration
Sustainable resource planning for your assembly areas
The volatile influences of the markets have a direct impact on the required capacities. Based on volume forecasts and growth scenarios, we determine capacity requirements and work with you to develop an optimal and sustainable resource structure for your assembly areas. In order to be able to cover the demand for specialists in the future, we will show you possible resource bottlenecks and work with you to develop strategies and concepts for targeted and efficient personnel development.
Automation and technology planning in assembly
Systematic analysis of automation solutions
With the advance of digitalization, the field of automation technology has also developed rapidly in recent years and offers numerous potentials for increasing quality and efficiency in assembly. In modern smart factories, rigid assembly lines are replaced by highly flexible driverless transport systems and humans are supported in their assembly tasks by collaborative robots (cobots for short). We will be happy to advise you with comprehensive expertise on innovative automation solutions for your assembly. Together with you, we create manufacturer-independent automation concepts for your individual application. In addition to the technical benefits of an automation solution, we naturally also consider aspects of cost-effectiveness and also take into account so-called low-cost automation, which are standardized, low-cost automation solutions.
We help you find the right technologies for your challenges.
