To pave the way for a more sustainable production system, retrofits offer great leverage to improve efficiency while reducing the environmental footprint. A retrofitted machine offers equal or even higher production efficiency than a completely new system. It saves time in manufacturing and reduces the environmental footprint by reusing parts of the system.
The modular design of Broetje-Automation’s fastening systems makes it possible to bring them up to the latest state of the art even after many years of operation. The planned measures will modernise the fastening systems at the Airbus Aerostructures plant in Nordenham with state-of-the-art technology, more efficient drive technology and a higher degree of automation.
One of the most important advantages of a retrofit is the increase in the productivity of the equipment. In addition to the renewal of the NC control, further developed tool changers with a higher degree of automation will be installed. The redesigned user interface ensures that the machine operator can operate the system even more easily and intuitively. Intelligent sensor-controlled monitoring systems and smart camera systems also improve the positioning speed and accuracy of production, ensuring better quality and even greater process reliability. In the event of possible process deviations, the system can intervene automatically.
