fischertechnik is introducing its one-of-a-kind Training Factory Industry 4.0 at the Hannover trade fair. The Training Factory’s size allows it to fit on a desk. The miniature factory consists of various processes that can be found in a real assembly, such as a kiln, a sorting line with colour detection and a high bay warehouse. The dashboard connected via cloud visualises various process steps from the perspective of the customer, supplier or head of production. The factory simulation therefore displays all the processes of an online order in a digital and networked manner – from placing the order online all the way to dispatch.
The fischer Group of Companies received the “Red Dot Award: Product Design 2019” for its self-drilling plasterboard fixing fischer DUOBLADE approximately three months following its market introduction. The international expert panel honours products with a high level of design quality with the award.
The FUS (fischer universal channel system) is particularly suitable for securing medium to heavy pipe systems such as in industrial construction or infrastructure projects. The modular system with optimised connector elements and push-through installation enables assembly by simply inserting and rotating the connectors into the base elements. The entire range is now also available in a corrosion-resistant variant in addition to the galvanised zinc version.
fischer application engineers support customers from the planning stage and pre-assembly all the way through to the installation stage. The experts lend their support to planners and contractors across the globe throughout all phases of HVAC projects. The range of services includes practical digital tools for selecting and designing installation and fixing systems as well as specialist training sessions.
Heavy installations in building services as well in industry and plant construction are mostly mounted with secondary steel constructions. This type of pipe support requires its own planning and preassembly. On-site installation often leads to delays due to structural tolerances. Heavy systems can be implemented in a more flexible and efficient manner with the new fischer massive heavy-duty system FMS.
