Precision in processes and functions

In order to manufacture and document at high quality, precision and reliable process data are required. Intelligent use and consistent application of Industry 4.0 technologies in our units enable us to determine these data.

Control technology participates right from the very beginning of the project.

If necessary we can complete our own expertise with additional competent modules of our partner and suppliers. The use of simultaneous engineering jointly with our customers allows efficient solutions within a minimum of time. With short project cycle times and high quality requirements we achieve a well-performing process chain.

Intelligent automation right from the beginning

Automatic stations and complete production lines for assembly technology

Assembly line

Long-term operation under harsh condition of production... multiple-shift operation... trouble-free and low in maintenance - that is the high demand on an assembly facility.

In order to improve the process reliability in total, it is a matter of avoiding mistakes, increasing quality and integrating suitable interfaces with testing and measuring stations into a process chain.

For more than 20 years Plan B has been supplying automatic stations and complete production lines for assembly technology. With our experience gained from automotive industries we have entered into the fields of aircraft and consumer goods, realizing several demanding projects.

Examples are laser marking systems, measuring systems, feeding systems, assembly machines, material handling machines and demoulding station. In many cases Plan B engineers or even our customers, assuming the relevant know-how, integrate the station directly into larger existing assembly lines in order to enhance the efficiency of the work processes.

Special Machinery

Our Plan B team is made up of engineers and employees with diverse and wide-ranging qualifications that allow customized development, design and construction of special machinery on behalf of our clients. The scope of services range from manufacturing of specific components to assemblies and devices up to machinery and complete facilities.

A precise implementation of individual requirements elicits new and efficient work processes. With long-term expertise, vertical range of manufacture and quality Plan B guarantees both a safe and reliable production process.

 

Unique know‑how for unique solutions

Assembly times, accessi­bilities and ergonomics

Manual Workstations

Manufacture of an automatic station. Standard solutions are frequently being offered but rarely suit individual tasks and challenges. Only precise planning of job sequences in consideration of assembly times, accessibilities and ergonomics paves the way for an optimal and economical manual workstation.

For construction there are two options: Either the complete manual workstation including component supply is displayed by means of a simplified 3D-design. In doing so the complete workflow can be jointly discussed beforehand and optimizied with the customer. Or the possibility of "Reverse Engineering" is being used by creating simple fixtures and devices with utilization of prototypes prior to final completion. Thus the accessibilty to the components and an ergonomic design of the parts supply can be tested in advance before a subsequent detailed construction completes the whole process.

Operating equipment

Manufacture of operating equipment being used exclusively for specific applications in production requires comprehensive knowledge both of your component part and the particular operating process.

With good ideas and little effort many tasks can be significantly improved. Here Plan B can provide optimal support: details not being seen in daily work routine are recognized by a well-trained view from outside. By optimizing complete operating sequences and designing and building the handheld devices required, we exploit considerable potential for our customers.

Plan B manufactures special tools and operating equipment such as joining tools, adjustment gauges, templates, gripper or testing devices according to customer requests and adapted to individual workplace requirements.
