With the new ValuTec, the specified assembly time was only three weeks. Due to their size and complexity, assembly times of three months and more are common for Waldrich Coburg machines. Of course, this reduction can only work with the right conditions and the right suppliers.
For the ValuTec milling machine, Waldrich Coburg used pre-assembled energy supply systems from igus for the first time. Waldrich even purchases the individual cables, which are installed somewhere on the machine, as well as the guide troughs in which the energy supply systems are installed, everything from igus.
Whereas Waldrich previously had one supplier for each individual part, the chain, the cables and the hose systems with the corresponding logistical effort, the company gets everything from a single source with pre-assembled readychain energy supply systems - straight from the manufacturer.
Another advantage is the single point of contact at igus instead of many different contacts to deal with when such a large project is implemented. The system responsibility lies entirely with igus.
The energy supply system used in the milling machine consists of more than 8,000 individual parts that have to be assembled at the right time and delivered on time. The complex system could be reduced to only eight order numbers. igus takes over the procurement of all necessary individual parts up to the delivery of the ready-to-install energy supply system. This makes the costs transparent for Waldrich Coburg.
