Textile machinery firm Karl Mayer has announced that the new assembly hall at Obertshausen, Germany, has become operational. On 1 November 2016, the first machine bed arrived at the hall. The hall was set up on the basis of state-of the-art assembly logistics and covers an area of 13,500 square metres and the assembly capacity is 2,500 machines per annum.

The short processing cycles in particular ensure that the assembly processes run optimally and that the materials flow operates rationally. For example, the component groups are delivered according to the fishbone principle, and consequently to the assembly stations next to the main flow of the process. This results in short transport paths, and a high degree of flexibility and coordination. The individual workstations in turn are located next to a continuous rail system, on which the machine is assembled step-by-step to form the final product, without any diversions.

Herbert Lohr, head of Karl Mayer's warp knitting business unit said, “We have installed a state-of-the-art assembly line here with optimum cycle times – from delivery of the parts and modules to dispatch. With the next generation of assembly operations, we are strengthening the competitiveness of the entire Karl Mayer Group.” (GK)
