MS Industrie AG: Further development of automation and digitalization at MS XTEC

München (pta007/04.12.2023/10:00 UTC+1)

MS XTEC, a daughter company of MS Industrie AG, has significantly increased its level of automation and digitalization in recent months, which significantly increases the productivity of the Trossingen headquarters. In addition to the automatic loading of the machines with the help of robots and the transport of parts via driverless transport systems ("AGV"), a fully automatic measuring cell has also gone into operation. The measuring cell automatically reports the measurement data back to the machines, ensuring quality in parallel with production without any need for operation and will be expanded to include additional products and systems in the coming months.

The central element is the ultra-modern master computer, specially developed for MS XTEC. This will significantly optimize and simplify production control in the coming years. Little by little, additional and existing systems will be connected to the computer in order to significantly increase the level of digitalization of MS XTEC.

Armin Distel, member of the Management Board of MS Industrie AG: "The high investments will enable further growth for MS XTEC, but will also specifically and strategically counteract the cost pressure caused by exogenous influences. The new and innovative production and automation concept will also be used in our new plant in the USA right from the start."

"For the coming year, MS XTEC expects further growth compared to the current financial year and, at around 15%, is above the expected sales from the medium-term business plan simulation. This shows that our company is well positioned and established in the market," said Dr. Andreas Aufschnaiter, member of the Management Board of MS Industrie AG.
