…there was a production line that could be setup for different formats within minutes?
… there was a production line that where a wide range of new formats and patterns can be easily introduced?
… there was a production line that is built truly modular where each process step can be validated separately?
… there was a production line where new modules can be easily added as needs change?
This would enable a payback in 1 day vs current production machines
– With more frequent and lengthy changeover times from one batch to another, high speed legacy lines can only deliver a fraction of their full capacity.
Changeovers have been reported as taking up as much as 80% of production time, severely compromising the equipment’s efficiency.
Production planning becomes focused on the limitations of the production equipment rather than on market needs.
Graniten invented a platform solution for this, says Daniel Brännwik Technology manager at Graniten.
