Modular and flexible machine building

Modular machine construction

  • Today’s machines must be able to quickly adapt to changes in the market
  • Modular machine concepts guarantee your customers the greatest possible flexibility
  • The modular machine building design also makes the transport and installation of large and extensive machines at the customer’s premises easier

Reduced programming effort
Decentralized machines and plant concepts allow the use of smaller controllers and automation solutions.
Reduced programming effort
Faster assembly, startup, and retrofitting
Uniform interfaces ensure rapid assembly of individual system modules to form a production line and enable a machine to be quickly converted or retrofitted.
Faster assembly, startup, and retrofitting
Flexible conversion or retrofitting
The combination of individual manufacturing steps allows flexible production, and production facilities can be adapted to changing market requirements. You can also react flexibly in the event of malfunctions, and production can continue.
Flexible conversion or retrofitting
Faster and more flexible delivery
Compact machine modules can be transported more quickly and easily.

Signal transmission

There are many different requirements when it comes to controlling machines. While the machine controller is well protected against environmental influences in control cabinets, numerous sensors and actuators as well as their connection are installed in exposed conditions in the field. COMPLETE line provides solutions for the flexible, modular, and efficient connection of these components in the field.
