fischer Automotive Systems Factory
Saving with fischertechnik
At fischer Automotive Systems (fas) in Horb, trainee Murat Süzgün, BA students Isabell Schaub and Simon Traub built a 1:20 scale model of the production facilities. They were supported by the KVP representative Sabine Hinz and fischertechnik model designer Hermann Dongmann. The project required over 16,000 parts from fischertechnik for the 52 injection molding machines, 200 workbenches, 100 pallets and 100 shelves.
The team was capable of simulating various changes based on the models. All totaled, this allowed approx. 200 m² of space to be saved. Originally, fischer Automotive Systems was even considering an annex due to the lack of space. However, redesigning the plant hall was considerably more economical. This fischertechnik project allowed a great deal of money to be saved.
