One manufacturing execution system, 12 new machines, 1,500 square meters of space. All combined to create a fully networked, highly flexible batch size 1 furniture production for Goldbach-Kirchner’s interior fitting firm based in Dessau.
In his existing plant in Geiselbach, Bernd Kirchner already ran a highly successful business producing high-end system partition walls, series furniture and interior fittings for banks, industry, schools and public institutions, the catering trade and shopfitters – sticking mainly to large batch sizes. However, increasing demands on planners and new developments within the construction industry meant that Kirchner and his team would have to improve their flexibility.
How could it be achieved? After acquiring an empty hall in Dessau,
HOMAG and Goldbach Kirchner transformed the space into a highly
technologically advanced furniture and series production plant.
The plant, which has been producing for a number of months, is networked with the latest manufacturing execution system ControllerMES and is considered one of the most exceptional projects in terms of networking and digitalization by the HOMAG experts.
The plant encompasses a saw-storage combination, an edge
bander with automated return conveyor and laser technology for
zero joint production, a sorting magazine, a robot (removal, stacking, feeding, ejection and insertion of components, change of component orientation for further transport), a fully automatic drilling and dowel driving machine and a stand-alone case clamp. The new plant allows Goldbach Kirchner to work with the utmost flexibility and efficiency.
