Smart Factory

Digitalization and intelligent resource management lead to advanced factories. At Broetje-Automation, we are leading experts for large turnkey projects in the aerospace industry. That’s why we advise our customers from start to finish for a custom-fit solution tailored to their specifications.

The planning phase is the beginning of projects that often last many years. Together with our customers we evaluate their specifications, requirements and advise them with our knowledge to show even better result possibilities.

Control of production lines in conjunction with high-tech digital solutions offer the next big step towards greater efficiency, time savings and ease of management in production. The networked digital line management solutions provide a deep understanding of the overall process and reveal previously unimagined potential for improvement.

The Smart Factory contains advanced high-tech systems that enable intelligent and connected production, giving workers the tools to control more machines and increase production rates. Smooth, controlled, lean and efficient processes lead to the Factory of the Future.

Aircraft Production goes “GREEN” – Broetje-Automation Collaborates with Airbus Aerostructures to Promote Sustainable and Resource-Efficient Production

Broetje-Automation has successfully collaborated with a broad industry consortium to identify ways to reduce the environmental impact of today’s production facilities. The “GREEN” project, a joint initiative of a consortium of partners including OFFIS e.V., DLR e.V., ProIng and Broetje-Automation GmbH under the leadership of AIRBUS Aerostructures, developed measures to reduce the power consumption of old systems by up to 85% in certain areas of application. Overall, especially retrofitting older systems allows significant contributions towards a more sustainable industrial production.
