Smart Buffering - Remarkable Material Savings

January 7, 2019

The productivity of an optical cable manufacturing line can be improved significantly by increasing line speed. Our buffering process has set totally new limits for the line speeds. When traditional manufacturing speeds have been increased by 300%, obvious process items must be redefined. 

The manufacturing process itself must be quite robust. Otherwise there are too many parameters which the line operator must control during production. In our smart buffering concept we are taking the process control to the next level by analyzing and understanding the relations between the process data and the end-product properties. The line's concept will also have enhanced operator guidance which will lead to remarkable annual material savings.
