The joy of something special
In our new weblog you regularly find exciting content on the topics of special purpose machine manufacture and toolmaking. We introduce you to our employees, our customers, the way we work and what we do every day to find the best solution for your requirements.
Our new weblog specifically addresses you, our existing and prospective customers, and aims to engage with you. We, a HARTING Technology Group subsidiary, have specialised in toolmaking and special purpose machine manufacture. In our video, Managing Director Dr Volker Franke shows how we design and build machines and plants - and how we have achieved a successful presence on the external market as a result. You can also find out what the user interface looks like, how robots are integrated and what the "joy of doing something special" is in the weblog.
Model-based requirements and change management – The development of production systems, such as assembly lines, is becoming increasingly challenging due to more variance in manufacturing products, higher levels of automation, and very verstile manufacturing. To meet all these requirements, a solid holistic understanding of the task is essential and a systematic impact analysis of the changes is necessary. Let Rebecca Heitmann, systems engineer in special purpose machine engineering at HARTING Applied Technologies, explain how we overcome these challenges with the help of model-based requirements and change management.
Versatility and a wide range of expansion options - The modular assembly cell concept keeps the investment risk low, and the level of automation can be gradually adjusted in tandem with the increase in production volume. The customer decides how many and which processes are the first to be converted from a manual to an automatic process.
Optimal manufacturing process - Customers are demanding the production of individualised products in small quantities. In addition, rising costs are pushing them towards automation. The manufacturing components must be so adaptable that is is possible to produce even the smallest quantities. Our modular assembly cell concept provides many options for the optimum production process. Let Friedrich Gärtner, sales engineer for special machine construction at HARTING Applied Technologies, explain how modular cells help us to meet individual requirements.
Universal modular design for GROHEDAL - GROHEDAL Sanitärsysteme GmbH, based in Porta Westfalica, also relies on our technology and know-how. The leader in the field of installation and flushing technology was suitably impressed with the high versatility of our facility, which assembles a plug valve.
VDI podcast "Technik aufs Ohr"
The Corona pandemic has had a massive impact on the industry. We, too, in special purpose machine manufacture are seeing major changes in the way we work.
Find out more in the podcast "Technik aufs Ohr" by VDI Verlag where Dr. Volker Franke describes the challenges facing machine manufacturing and how digitalisation is supporting the process of change.
A successful presence on the external market
We, HARTING Applied Technologies, are a recognised specialist for toolmaking and special purpose machine manufacture. On the external market, we are very successful in the field of special purpose machine manufacture, as our Managing Director Dr Volker Franke explains.
