The use of robotics to facilitate automation and the process integration required for this are among Baumann’s core strengths. The standard products are robot cells whose modular design principle is tailored to individual customer requirements and can thus be combined to generate complete production lines.
The systems are used for assembling components and for handling tasks, e.g. to assemble control units in the automotive industry. If requested by customers, Baumann manufacturing solutions also incorporate lean production principles. The goal is to always implement all automation systems as simply and reliably as possible, irrespective of whether they are stand-alone solutions or complex production systems. Baumann Automation therefore guarantees its customers a high-level of process reliability and availability.
Baumann supports dynamic, real-time optimised and self-organising production processes. Here, real operating conditions are recorded, converted into digital data and then automatically provided to the process control system.
In pump assembly, the various robot cells are linked with a conveyor system to form one production line. Workpiece carriers equipped with an RFID system enable continuous traceability over the entire assembly process.
The modular design enables a fully automated production process for customers, from individual part to finished product.
A further advantage of lean production results from the more efficient networking of various fields of competence throughout the entire value-added chain. In the world of Industry 4.0, this core competence of Baumann will be of enormous significance. Due to further developed and more concentrated networks, e.g. of test systems, we will be able to visualise the entire production process digitally. Quantitative and qualitative investments in control and test systems will increase the flow of data enormously.
It will be possible to fine-tune production processes and procedures, and manufacturing processes will be improved during production.
The continuous improvement process therefore takes into account the principle of total quality management (TQM). Baumann provides optical and electrical test systems to ensure 100% quality control.
A prime example that fully supports the principles of Industry 4.0 is the new climate tester from Baumann Automation, which includes the entire value-added chain of customers, partners, manufacturers and suppliers in the development phase. The system therefore not only has a more compact design, but also saves an enormous amount of energy, especially for heating and cooling.
