ABB Striebel & John GmbHOptimisation of the production line
ABB Striebel & John GmbH, based in Sasbach on the Upper Rhine, is one of the leading manufacturers of power distribution systems and a partner of the “Elektrohandwerk” (electrical trade). During an event and while looking for competent partners to optimise its production line for automating the assembly of control cabinets, the company were introduced to a Steinbeis 2i project manager who discussed optimal solutions they could employ.
S2i subsequently worked to identify strategic partners for further development, also in the international environment, and made suggestions for suitable national and European funding programmes. Finally, S2i accompanied the complete development process on automated guided vehicles to determine the material flow and technical requirements for AGV system solutions. This was successfully carried out in a three-part workshop with two business advisors from S2i and five participants from ABB Striebel & John GmbH.
„"By working with Steinbeis 2i, we were able to make some very interesting contacts in a short time and together, we were able to derive plans from abstract ideas to be able to implement our strategy. Steinbeis 2i will also support us in the further implementation of these plans."“Markus Weber, Head of Process and Product Engineering, ABB Striebel & John GmbH
