Analysis and optimization of your production
With our many years of automation expertise, we have developed a reliable system to identify optimisation opportunities for production processes or manufacturing plants and to efficiently exploit their potential. In a comprehensive report, you receive all the essential findings of our investigation, on the basis of which you decide on the next steps.
The fundamental step in identifying the needs and possibilities for automating production processes of our customers from industry is the preparation of a potential analysis. In a four-step, systematic process, we determine the current and future application possibilities for automation, identify and analyze potentials, weaknesses, opportunities and risks. A potential analysis by IBG enables you to make strategic decisions on the basis of which you increase your competitiveness.
Procedure of the IBG potential analysis:
- Target definition
- Current situation
- Automation potential
Through thorough analysis, the next step is to develop innovative, sustainable and cost-effective solutions for our clients that create real added value. To meet the ever-changing market conditions and ensure long-term success, the continuous updating of these analyses is essential.
The automation of production processes has gained in importance in manufacturing industries worldwide in recent years. The preparation of a feasibility study is often an important first step for our customers to gain valuable insights into in-house production and logistics processes, to consider and plan future-oriented modernization measures. An IBG feasibility study is a systematic investigation that evaluates a technical, economic and organizational feasibility of an automation project, reveals potential risks and challenges and determines the feasibility of a project.
Objective of our feasibility study:
- Technical feasibility
- Economic feasibility
- Organisational feasibility
Sequence of the IBG feasibility study:
- Project initiation
- Data collection
- Technical assessment
- Economic evaluation
- Organisational assessment
Through a thorough analysis of the technical, economic and organizational aspects, we can ensure for our customers that automation projects planned by them can be successfully and efficiently implemented by IBG.
The development and implementation of demonstrator and prototype applications for industrial automation systems are a crucial step towards optimizing our customers' production processes. IBG prototypes are test models that we develop to verify the functionality and efficiency of a wide range of equipment and solutions before they are implemented by the customer. In the development of customized automation processes, this phase plays a crucial role in identifying problems, showing potential for improvement and ensuring the reliability of our systems. IBG develops prototypes to overcome the technical challenges encountered in automation in different industries.
Examples of prototype applications are:
- Robot-controlled automation systems
- Sensor and control systems
- Flexible manufacturing cells
Advantages of prototype development:
- Risk minimisation
- Cost savings
- Faster time to market
- Customer satisfaction
The development and implementation of engineering technologies and prototypes in automation plants are a key area in modern industry. By using prototypes, IBG engineers can develop innovative solutions and optimise industrial processes and achieve higher efficiency, quality and sustainability of our plants and solutions. For our industrial customers, this means more competitive products and better profitability of their production.
Features and the advantages of turnkey systems:
- Efficient planning
- Time and cost savings
- High reliability
- Easy maintenance
Turnkey systems offer a range of benefits, including increased efficiency, cost savings, precision and flexibility. Our industrial customers significantly increase their competitiveness and the sustainability of their manufacturing processes.
To implement your needs-based automation solution, we use the entire service portfolio of our in-house experts.
As a renowned special machine builder, IBG begins its work with a comprehensive conception phase. Here, the specific customer requirements are recorded in detail and translated into a technical concept by our engineers. To ensure a customised and efficient automation process, our experts make a selection of the right technologies and components. To ensure the feasibility of the project, the IBG engineering team develops the necessary plans and models.
The construction of special machines and automated systems for industry requires precise mechanical manufacturing; as a general contractor, we combine all competences in our company. In order to develop and manufacture components such as frames, housings, tools, conveyor belts, etc. independently according to the design specifications and to ensure the highest precision and quality, IBG relies on state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies such as CNC milling and 3D printing.
Electronics play a central role in our customers' industrial automation systems. IBG is a system integrator; for control and monitoring, we install electronic components such as sensors, actuators, microcontrollers and industrial PC systems in our complex plants and customised automation solutions. Our in-house software development and implementation are an important part of this integration, they form the interface for the operation and control of our systems and solutions.
Industrial automation systems from IBG are often equipped with robots and automated movement and testing systems. In order to automate the desired customer-side processes in an efficient and future-proof manner, we integrate robotic arms from all leading manufacturers, conveyor belts, pick-and-place units and other automation components. The programming and control of these industrial robotic systems are critical to ensure the smooth operation and optimal process flow of our equipment and systems.
The quality and reliability of the equipment and solutions manufactured by IBG are of paramount importance. To ensure that our engineering services meet the specific requirements of our customers and function perfectly under "real" production conditions, each of our automation systems and innovative solutions undergoes extensive testing and quality control before delivery.
To ensure a smooth transition to a new plant technology and the efficient use of the machine, IBG takes over the commissioning and training of the operating personnel after the delivery and installation of a plant or solution at the customer's site. We offer a complete service, take care of maintenance, testing and servicing of your machines and plants. Together with you, the IBG specialists will find a solution concept tailored to your needs.
We are your partner also after commissioning, as a general contractor IBG has a broad service portfolio, offers comprehensive after-sales service and maintenance services. To ensure a long service life and optimal performance of our plants and solutions, we offer, among other things, regular inspection, maintenance and, if necessary, repair of our plants.
As a general contractor in special machine construction for industrial production processes, IBG plays a key role as a partner to modern industry and manufacturing sectors. Our cross-industry service portfolio covers the entire value chain, from design and construction to commissioning and maintenance. With innovative developments and customised automation solutions, we help to increase the efficiency, quality and competitiveness of the production processes of our global customers from various industries and to set them up for the future.
