Based in Stockach, Baden-Württemberg, the Bäumle carpentry has been relying on digitalization and automation of its work for several years. Production is also digitally supported. The introduction of imos iX was an important cornerstone for this, as master carpenter and owner Harald Bäumle reveals.
imos What advantages does this offer you?
Harald Bäumle After purchasing a 5-axis machining center, it quickly became clear that this should not be the last step. Programming and error rates took up too much time. Thanks to imos iX and the machine connection, we have become many times more efficient and the error rates have almost completely disappeared after the introduction.
imos Can you identify any concrete improvements in your day-to-day work or simplifications in the operating process?
Harald Bäumle The introduction of the labels then gave us another clear positive push forward. Since all parts are labeled, we always keep track of everything. All the information that is important for production is noted on the label: Order, project name, plan position, date, material, cutting dimensions, barcode, edge situation, logo, etc. We can also include information about the later installation location or about the installation itself.
Without imos, we would by far not be where we are today. The road was long and hard, but it was definitely worth it. The digitization of our carpentry business has enabled us to significantly increase sales and throughput. And the trend is strongly upward.
