Lay-out, product- and process optimization
Grimbergen support producers with a structured and project wise approach by means of:
- Process evaluation to reduce bottlenecks and provide load-levelling solutions
- Improvement proposals
- Implementation of the chosen solution in cooperation with the client.
- Knowledge of processes
- Recognition and knowledge of process evaluation and assessment
- New production plants
- Existing production plants
- Knowledge to connect all processes, including planning and stock management.
Grimbergen looks after the analysis of:
- Production processes
- Cycle times
- Production plant layout
- Material streams
- Workshop layout
- Handling of finished products
- Transport of finished products
- Storage of finished products
- Improve product quality
- Reduce scrap and rework
- Efficiency improvement
- Decreasing labour costs and maintenance costs
- Increased production
- Improved return on investment
- Reduced waste
Long line system
A long line production systemdistinguishes itself by providing one or more process steps over a long line of end-products, mainly pre-stressed elements. This is an efficient way to produce a large amount of mainly the same kind of products in one production cycle.
The (partial) processes can be fully automated:
- Inserting reinforcement
- Dosing the concrete in the moulds
- Processing (e.g. sawing)
Long line production systems are often used for the production of:
- Foundation piles
- Foundation beams
- Railway sleepers
- Knowledge of processes
- Knowledge of products
- Recognizing and pointing out bottlenecks
High quality constant output of prefab concrete elements made with minimal manpower.
Production system carrousel principle
Next to the long line principle, Grimbergen also designs and builds carrousel production systems. The carrousel principle is basically a production system in form of a carrousel, in which the product passes various ‘stations’. Below you can find several examples of a Grimbergen-system (wall production).
Grimbergen not only delivers complete production environments/plants. For example; in case of bottlenecks within an existing production process, we find the best machinery solution together with our customers. Our machines and systems can be equipped with our own control systems, and can be connected to the whole process control system.
Process automation, control systems
Grimbergen Industrial Systems is an expert in process automation.
The software department at Grimbergen is capable of providing automation solutions for production plants and equipment. Existing plants can also be provided with a modern control system to enable communication with an external system, such as planning or stock management programme.
