Predictive process chain design in tool manufacturing
The key element in the tool manufacturing process is the production of a prototype which requires the successful implementation of the “First Part Right” principle. On the basis of different process chain models, engineers provide estimates for the duration of the individual processes, the component quality and the manufacturing costs. By adapting process chain plans to different manufacturing conditions, it is possible to predict the results of the production process under review with significantly higher levels or precision.
Flexible design and production of battery modules
The adaptive production of battery modules accounts for given restrictions such as spatial conditions, weight and properties including energy and power. Different types of cells are used in the production of small to medium-sized series of modules. Laser beam welding and laser bonding are applied in the manufacturing of connecting elements. Process information and data are immediately integrated into the design process. An integrated technology and configuration application supports the – fully digitalized – process of designing systems and manufacturing processes.
