Case study Herbert Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG

MES-Software for more workstations

Herbert Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG sees itself in a hybrid position between classic mechanical engineering and tool and die making. The product range of the metalworking company extends from tire molds for karting tires to molds for truck and agricultural machinery tires to tire molds for open pit excavators and earthmoving equipment. In addition, there is an astonishingly high level of vertical integration. The company is thus faced with the challenge of optimally managing and controlling the highly complex production processes. With the help of PROXIA’s MES-Software, the medium-sized company from Hesse succeeds in exploiting productivity reserves, increasing performance and ultimately creating new jobs.

“We use PROXIA MES in our production, from the control station with ERP connection to MDE/BDE data acquisition and DNC networking. This end-to-end solution uncovered hidden potential, gave us 15% more production output and even created additional new jobs.”
