The machine manufacturer WEINMANN has been setting trends in timber construction production since 1985. To date, the Swabian company located in St. Johann, Germany, has become the world market leader for timber construction systems – both for carpentry plants, module manufacturers and the prefabricated house industry. The connecting element has always been software from granIT.
An interview with WEINMANN Sales and Marketing Manager Michael Marschall and Project Engineer Ingo Krieg about the importance of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) in the automated production of prefabricated timber houses. And why hardly anything works in the timber construction industry without MES.
The Natursteinbetriebe Wigastone in Steinwenden, Rhineland-Palatinate, is a prime example of the successful use of MES powered by granIT in medium-sized companies. Managing director, founder and “doer” Armin Wigand reports in an interview about the successful development of his company and the key role granIT software plays in it.
MES from granIT have long been fully integrated and accepted in WeberHaus’ prefabricated house production. A conversation about new territory, step-by-step, table utilization, robots and trolleys.
At WeberHaus in Rheinau, Baden, the granIT Manufacturing Execution System (MES) has also been ensuring efficient processes in prefabricated house production since the beginning of 2021. We talked to Alfons Obrecht (Assistant Production/Technical Management) and Jörg Marin (Assistant Technical Management) about their experiences with the granIT flow solution. Just so much up front: satisfaction factor = high!
