Industry 4.0 Installation in Aurich

NORD DRIVESYSTEMS produces electronic drive technology up to 160 kW (inverters, motor starters and electronics) across 5,000 square meters in Aurich, Lower Saxony. The company relies on the latest technology and intelligent production structures . An autonomous driverless transport system (FTS) has been in use for a year now. The FTS controls the transportation from incoming goods to the Automatic Small Components Store (AKL). It recognises the demand for starting and end positions, loads the transport boxes independently and finds its own path. Obstacles are identified automatically - the FTS stops or turns around to find another way.

The driverless transport system (FTS) is part of a comprehensive strategy to improve processes. The motto: maximum efficiency, velocity and flexibility. Also included are the use of the intelligentNORDAC LINK field distributors , a largely paperless production as well as the automatic creation of layout diagrams and inspection plans from the configuration. Due to this automated and flexible production structure in Aurich, even a batch size of 1 is achievable without further set-up.
