I Stilling ved Skanderborg har Kamstrup i dag en helt igennem fuldautomatisk produktion af elmålere.
With production data it was possible to make a connection between the order placement system and all the necessary production equipment such as machines, robots, mobile robots etc.
At a MADE Innovation Conference – the first conference in the new Danish Innovation Network for Advanced Manufacturing operated by MADE – Flemming Møller Hansen, Global Head of Manufacturing Concepts at Kamstrup, told about the company’s use of production data to create the new manufacturing processes.
