SMART FOUNDRY

SMART FOUNDRY - Production commenced

The project team for our new iron foundry had set itself the ambitious target of 1 September, 2014 as Start of Production (SoP). Today, we can proudly announce: This deadline was met!

Just started: The production of the SMART FOUNDRY commenced just in time

The project is now at the optimisation stage. Following the first cast (on 28 August), production is now being fired up. The tonnage is being increased in stages with higher productivity than before. At the
same time, the automated guided transport systems are in preparation for fully-automatic operation. The real dimensions of the project with regard to the link-up with SAP system, transport system, meltshop and production processes are now becoming evident. As Smart Foundry is foreseen as an exemplary project for the Industry 4.0 motto in the foundry industry, particular emphasis is placed on matching master data with the requirements of fully-automatic operation. A control centre showing the complete production process, including all process components, is in preparation and will soon be fully operational.

 

Grand Opening in 2015
All we want to give away at this stage is: There will be a Grand Opening of the Smart Foundry in spring 2015. All the planned functions will be available by then but we can be sure of one thing even now: The health and safety and environmental targets will be overshot. The sales department at Kurtz Eisenguss GmbH & Co. KG has begun to actively ensure the exploitation of the addition capacity now available. First successes are already becoming evident. We are confident that the Smart Foundry project also meets the most important target: sustainable doubling of turnover with significantly-increased productivity!
