Produktionsprozess

  • Production Process

    WAGNER has been active in scientific research in the area of production for more than 15 years. The focus is not exclusively to be up-to-date in technical matters but also to seek constant improvement to our employees’ working conditions.

    Since November 2016, the company has been working in “STEPS” (www.steps-projekt.de), a scientific project consortium, to integrate the latest Industry 4.0 technologies. We have now achieved this!

    Within as little as 12 months, we developed the first production line for high-quality seating furniture in Europe that is controlled in real time. It is supported, for example, by small robotic vehicles that navigate independently. The line was commissioned at the end of 2017 and has been running without problems ever since.

    With the introduction of “Industry 4.0”, the first steps into the future have been taken. Of course, that will not be all. In addition to the constant further development of the above-mentioned aspects, our team is also working on transferring digital technologies to all production areas.

    Robotic vehicles, so-called AGVs (Autonomous Guided Vehicle) take over parts of internal transport and production logistics. They move completely autonomously, communicate via WiFi and are able to learn. They are also happy to welcome our visitors via their speech module. Paperless distribution of all fixed work orders via control console computer. No interim bookings. Feedback from assembly sites in real time via the push of a button or scan. Location-independent line control possible at any time!  Distribution of mobile work orders (e.g. material provision) via tablets. Automated work orders sent to AGVs in the production process.

    Every chair is handled by an employee at least once during the production process. This will guarantee additional monitoring and precise processing.

    Much higher effectiveness and adaptability (simple switching from small batches to large, avoiding errors, clearer individual tasks, reduction of delivery times).  Significant improvement to our employees’ working conditions. Reduction of tonnage moved manually by about 75% (by more than 2,000 t per year), further reductions to more than 90% during the course of the year! Perfect working and assembly environment for every employee, thanks to maximum possible individualisation. Reduction of psychological risk, thanks to clearly structured, easy to understand work orders and digital help at the employee’s own computer.
