To create the Factory of the Future, many adjusting screws interlock. At Broetje-Automation, everything is organized for this. Our machines, robots and mobile systems form the basis for automated, flexible and reliable production systems. Specialized software solutions complement the hardware and thus form the core of the outstanding quality of our production systems.
Our experience and process know-how guide us on the way to advanced systems that exceed our customers’ expectations in terms of quality, productivity and accuracy. Industrial applications such as drilling, riveting, sealing and milling enable diverse industrial processes in the Factory of the Future.
But there is much more to a production plant! Through interconnected digital solutions, our machines and the entire production line communicate with each other. Here, process data avoids collisions in real time and, based on real NC machine data, the process of the entire production line can be digitally planned, simulated and efficiently controlled during operation. This is a relief not only for the employees, but also for the quality assurance of the end products.
With the standardization of the components and the commissioning of the equipment, our Key Enabling Services come to the store. An orderly and well-planned implementation of the systems releases the desired synergy effects and lifts your production to the next level – efficient, flexible, precise and designed for high demands.
For long-term support, we are at your disposal with competent service even years after the implementation of the production line. To ensure that your production can be quickly resumed, we are close to you – at 23 locations in 7 countries – ready for action around the clock.
As an environmentally conscious company, we extend existing machines at our customers’ production sites with our retrofit services. In this way, we not only extend the life cycle and save resources before new equipment is purchased but also contribute to the continuous improvement of our customer efficiency and profitability. A fully comprehensive concept of modern high-tech production always also includes the sustainable use of existing machines and materials.
Automated solutions for the Factory of the Future comprise different systems for a wide range of industrial applications. From riveting machines to robotic systems with adaptable substructures and for various processes, we deliver customized solutions.
Process know-how and implementation expertise for customized solutions lead to sophisticated and highly precise process quality. An indispensable attribute for good products.
In the Factory of the Future, careful factory planning and in-depth expertise of the production systems integration are essential. At Broetje-Automation we are able to implement advanced technologies from factory planning, over turnkey realization to highly efficient production at our customers' factories.
As full service provider we deliver fast support around the world. Additional Retrofit services enhance the life cycle of ageing machines. With regular software updates, advanced electrification or even partial redesign Broetje-Automation is able to increase the productivity and quality for prolonged production without the effort of a complete machine renewal.
Broetje-Automation GmbH has delivered its highly innovative STAXX One Automated Fiber Placement Robot to the Composite Technology Center / CTC GmbH (An Airbus Company) in Stade, Germany. This advanced and automated fiber deposition system will be used in conjunction with the CTC and Airbus teams to create ecologically efficient and innovative composite structures, in support of a more sustainable future of mobility.
In early March 17 participants from Germany and Switzerland gathered in Northern Germany for the annual user exchange on Broetje-Automation’s offline programming system SOUL OLPS. At the headquarter of Broetje-Automation in Rastede, Germany the NC programming experts shared insights and experiences with the system in the daily industrial application. The SOUL software suite offers simple and efficient machine programming and operation with numerous appreciated features such as real-time machine simulation or advanced programming strategies.
