If one considers the efficiency of line production and the flexibility of island assembly, the obvious conclusion is that combining both approaches in an individual way would result in the optimal assembly process for companies.
This combined approach already exists and has a name: swarm assembly. Here, directed material flows and rigid chains exist alongside a flexible, modular concept – an effective mix that elevates every assembly line to a higher level.
By integrating or expanding HRC solutions and AGVs, it is possible to exploit the advantages of both line and island production, cherry-picking the best bits to suit a specific goal. Furthermore, the creation of an overall system with intelligent networking increases efficiency and flexibility with respect to products and production. For many years, a strength of Ingenics has been tailoring such scalable systems with adaptable structures for individual companies, helping them to achieve in maximum profitability and sustainable success as a result.
