Just a few weeks before LIGNA, HOLZMA has announced that it will be launching a world-first in Hannover that will revolutionise the cutting process in order-related manufacturing - the HPS 320 flexTec. In this smart cutting cell, the German company has implemented a concept that takes part transfer in customized production to a completely new level and allows fully automated processes. This saves time and material, thus reducing costs.Both in craft and businesses and industry, batch size 1 production is experiencing a rapidly increasing demand on the part of customers, and this is posing major manufacturing challenges for producers. The main cause for this lies in production runs that were originally designed for maximum efficiency in mass production. With the new HPS 320 flexTec, HOLZMA has taken a radically different approach and will be presenting a cutting concept tailored to batch size 1 production according to customer specifications.
The new HPS 320 FLEX Tec is able to exploit its potential to the full when combined with an automatic horizontal storage system. Suitable solutions are available and the price is right, making this new cutting cell attractive even for craft businesses. However industry too will find a perfect solution here because the HPP 320 flex Tec can be integrated in production lines of the HOMAG group without any problems. This means that production can continue in a fully automated fashion after the cutting cell, if required.
