A fresh start - 4.0 made real by Sirris


Creating a new demonstrator starts with creating space on the shop floor to put all these new technologies and equipment. We reorganised, cleaned up (a lot), threw out everything we didn’t touch for years and renewed some equipment to create some space. This was a huge work. 

As in most factories, the layout of our shop floor was grown organically throughout the years. Whenever a new machine arrived, we put it where there was still some space left. This resulted in a non-logical grouping of machine tools. With the reorganisation, we turned this into an efficient and clear layout.
