Continental Romania gets its Timisoara plant ready for Industry 4.0
The Automotive parts supplier Continental Romania is investing 1,9 million euro in the implementation of a fully automated storage system at its electronic components plant in Timisoara, local media reported.
“Acquiring this innovative system and the decision to invest 1.9 million euro in modular and ultra-modern storage equipment came with the weighing of the benefits it provides us”, Continental Timisoara production unit manager Ralf Luchs further disclosed.
The system is managed through robots collecting and stacking product boxes inside a metal frame. The battery-operated robotic units then rearrange and deliver them automatically to dedicated lifting stations, Continental Romania elaborated.
“This system spreads on 1000 square meters and contains 42 500 boxes. Its installation ensures 50% reduction in the total surface area originally used for this purpose and provides faster, more ergonomic and cost-effective services at a much lower cost. Its integration is another step that the Timisoara plant is doing towards the 4.0 industry”, the company said.
