Stiles is excited to introduce the next step in Batch Size One Production – combining the new HOLZMA HPS 320 flexTec automatic single line cutting system with additional Industry 4.0 technologies to offer a fully-automated Batch Size One Production Work Cell, geared towards eliminating human handling and ensuring consistent and repeated production rate and sequence.
The Batch Size One Production Work Cell
Highlighting the advancements in networked production and Industry 4.0 technologies, the Batch Size One Production Work Cell in Stiles Machinery's booth will feature automated handling, cutting and machining technologies. This work cell will be demonstrating the latest technologies available for automated, streamlined production and will offer manufacturers of all sizes an opportunity to see how these improvements can help their businesses.
Live Demonstrations at IWF
Attend one of our scheduled daily live demonstrations of the Batch Size One Production Work Cell at IWF 2016. These demonstrations will take place at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m., Wednesday - Friday.
Viewing space is limited, so please make a reservation prior to the show for best availability.
The core of the Batch Size One Production Work Cell focuses on three pieces of advanced machinery from HOLZMA, HOMAG Automation and WEEKE. These three machines are networked together using Industry 4.0 technologies that allow minimal human handling and enables highly optimized production.
In simple terms, networked production means the interlinking of a company’s manufacturing processes as a whole. In an Industry 4.0 environment, the machines are intelligent and able to independently control production.
“Smart Factories” as they are called will have work pieces that are uniquely identifiable, can be located at any time, and know their own history, current status, and alternative routes to achieving their target state.
