Cimcorp has expanded its Dream Factory solution to include the handling of raw materials and compound products. This end-to-end solution includes an optimized layout design that utilizes 50% less floor space than conventional solutions, can be integrated with specialized software systems and generates cost savings of up to 50% in materials handling capital investment by simplifying the material flow.
Kai Tuomisaari, VP of sales and projects, Cimcorp, said, “The acquisition of Cimcorp by warehouse management and distribution specialist Muratec enabled the addition of key upstream components to the Dream Factory solution. Muratec’s warehousing and transportation technologies are now fully integrated with Cimcorp’s systems, including a user-friendly interface for operators, to provide seamless data access throughout the entire manufacturing process.”
The Dream Factory solution is suitable for both brownfield and greenfield factory sites, with the original version already implemented around the globe. In the new Dream Factory, Cimcorp’s gantry robot technology and material handling specialty software – a combination of warehouse control software and manufacturing execution systems – provide tangible benefits that include real-time data for production and inventory management. This includes 100% availability of raw materials, compounds, components, green tires and finished tires at each point in the manufacturing process, as well as optimum utilization of the most valuable process machinery, such as building machines and curing presses, to secure crucial increases in production capacity.
