Space is scarce in cities. These days it is not unusual for machines to take over the parking procedure, allowing vehicles to be parked invisibly even in the tightest of spaces. Modern production machines are high-precision long-distance runners: The requirements on dimensional accuracy and reproducible precision are constantly increasing. For many years, we have been automating a variety of test beds in several industries. Manufacturing process of CFRP components is complex and labour-intensive. We have networked eight individual machines to form an ultra-modern facility and has significantly shortened and simplified processes with automation.
