At the beginning of 2023, we will deliver an electric composite press for aircraft interior parts to the plant of a reputed US aerospace company. The order goes back to a project by our US subsidiary BBG North America. In the technical center in Oxford/Michigan, we manufactured composite prototype parts for the aircraft manufacturer together with the customer.
We are collaborating on a research project to develop artificial intelligence (AI) based automation for production facilities. Our partners in the project, which is funded by "dtec.bw - Center for Digitization and Technology Research of the German Armed Forces", are Helmut Schmidt University in Hamburg and Weidmüller Interface GmbH & Co. KG in Detmold as a software specialist.
Two new robot-equipped automation modules developed by us have recently become available. One innovation applies primer or lacquer to components without a person, while the other module takes over the application of release agent to mold surfaces.
As specialists for glass and polyurethane, we find the trend topic of vehicle-integrated photovoltaics particularly exciting. In this young field of application, electricity-generating modules are installed in cars and ships in order to increase the range of the vehicles with the additional energy generated.
Significantly less glass breakage and trimming in car glass PUR encapsulation: Car glasses, panorama windows and panorama sunroofs for cars can be better finished with the new PUR flush sealing concept for encapsulation tools.
Compact, efficient and highly productive packaging machines of the best quality on the smallest possible footprint - this is how BBG wants to enter new markets. The innovations should also be easy to operate and available at an attractive price.
We have developed the special BFT-B mold carrier model for a European manufacturer of bathroom ceramics, precisely tailoring the mold carrier to their application. The mold carrier is designed so that the lower mold mounting plate is located at the same level as the production hall floor.
