In the field of met­al­work­ing con­tract man­u­fac­tur­ing, the SwissFactory.Group prob­a­bly offers the widest range of ser­vices in Switzerland.

In par­tic­u­lar, the fol­low­ing man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­nolo­gies are in the foreground:

  • Sheet metal forming
  • metal cut­ting process
  • Pre­ci­sion Mechanics
  • 3D print­ing
  • Metal Join­ing
  • Refin­ing

By bring­ing together com­ple­men­tary tech­nolo­gies, the Swiss­Fac­tory Group is cre­at­ing a new mar­ket offer­ing for Switzer­land: the “Life­cy­cle Tech­nol­ogy Offer­ing”! It thus offers its cus­tomers the most opti­mal man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­nol­ogy over the entire life cycle of a product.

Dual Fac­tory Model

To ensure that the man­u­fac­ture of com­po­nents can be offered com­pet­i­tively in Switzer­land, the SwissFactory.Group has devel­oped the “Dual Fac­tory Model”: two fac­to­ries under the same roof.

In the“Human Fac­tory”, humans, robots, machines and IT sys­tems work together. The“Dig­i­tal Fac­tory”, on the other hand, works — mostly at night — com­pletely with­out peo­ple. This approach should reduce the man­u­fac­tur­ing costs for many com­po­nents by at least 35%, mak­ing Switzer­land attrac­tive again in com­par­i­son with East­ern Europe.

In a first phase, the Dig­i­tal Fac­tory will be built in the area of 6 tech­nolo­gies!

With fully auto­mated pro­duc­tion lines and han­dling robots, a fac­tory can­not yet be oper­ated autonomously.

Spe­cific sys­tem appli­ca­tions are absolutely cen­tral. “On the one hand, there needs to be a dig­i­tal “fil­ter” that uses com­plex algo­rithms to iden­tify those prod­ucts that are best suited for the Dig­i­tal Fac­tory, and that also con­trols pro­duc­tion plan­ning. On the other hand, a dig­i­tal con­trol cen­ter sys­tem is needed that orches­trates the entire pro­duc­tion process and com­mu­ni­cates with other sys­tems, espe­cially the ERP, via inter­faces. Finally, an ongo­ing over­all opti­miza­tion includ­ing live data from the process is also essential.

The heart of the Dig­i­tal Fac­tory is the appli­ca­tion “MIAO”, which is devel­oped by the Swiss com­pany Mis­u­rio.

Chi­nese wis­dom says, “When the wind of change blows, some peo­ple build walls, oth­ers build windmills.”

The SwissFactory.Group has set itself the goal of con­stantly devel­op­ing its com­pe­ten­cies with a strong focus on dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion, speed, and sus­tain­abil­ity.
