Material Flow

The optimum connection of kiln systems with the upstream and downstream production processes looks back on a long tradition in out house. In the production of ceramic parts, Eisenmann has virtually revolutionized the material flow, e.g. with the first fully automatic production line for the manufacture of porcelain or with the development of linked sintering lines with fully automatic layer buffers for manufacturing electrotechnical ceramics. Understanding the interdependencies in linking automation technology with sensitive kiln technology is crucial for selecting just the right techniques.

Everything from one Source

Only when embedding high-class kiln technology into a coherent material flow concept will your production result in a highly efficient production line. Only the understanding of kiln technology combined with a good command of a broad range of conveyor and automation systems provides the basis for optimum integration and alignment with each other and for avoiding problems in the complex interface between the systems. The key to an effective implementation of a lean, automated production is the perfect control of the kiln systems. Only when process engineering in the kiln operates in a stable and reliable way even with considerable load fluctuations, is it possible to design automation that is simple and thus effective.
