Mobile Smart Factory

The Mobile Smart Factory is a true autonomous production unit in additive manufacturing. The integrated installation in containers equipped with 3D printing equipment aims to provide a flexible and reliable means of production wherever it is needed. The Mobile Smart Factory covers the entire additive manufacturing process, including pre-processing and post-processing. This allows a cost-effective and rapid supply of metal and plastic parts.

The overall system consists of two CSC-certified containers and includes one operating  and one production unit.

The benefits of the Mobile Smart Factory

Reliable and fast supply of metal and polymer parts :

  • Fast production of required spare and functional parts on site
  • Reduction of supply chain complexity

Reduced logistics efforts and cost :

  • Avoidance of excess inventories (made to order, not to stock)
  • Shipping cost savings through decentralized production

Flexible and efficient production capacities through “Plug & Print” :

  • Fast and simple expansion of production capacities
  • Simple relocation of production

Digitised and efficient production :

  • On demand production via virtual storage
  • High level of automation
