In order to reliably meet the increased demand for digital solutions to implement the goals of Industry 4.0, Kaltenbach.Solutions GmbH has moved into new premises near Düsseldorf. Here, the hardware components for the universally applicable digital measuring device BoosterBOX are developed, tested and configured. The innovation and test center can produce around 5,000 measuring devices annually for customers in the manufacturing industry.
First and foremost, creativity and innovation are needed to solve the pressing problems of the present. Throughout the millennia, it has been true that the discovery of new methods and tools initiates the great developmental steps of mankind. Valentin Kaltenbach’s family of entrepreneurs has been living this philosophy for generations for the benefit of its customers. Five years ago, the mechanical engineering graduate founded Kaltenbach.Solutions GmbH exclusively for the implementation of Industrie 4.0. His goal is to use the tools of digitization to sustainably increase the performance of machines in the manufacturing industry. This goes hand in hand with the careful use of limited resources such as operating resources, energy consumption and employees.
In order to continue to exist on the market as a leading provider of digital solutions in the future, it became necessary to expand the company’s capacities in the area of Research & Development. At the beginning of the year, the Kaltenbach.Solutions test and innovation center therefore moved to larger premises near Düsseldorf. Here, the hardware components for the universally applicable digital measuring device BoosterBOX 4.0 are developed, tested and configured. These include IoT gateways, communication modules, measurement and sensor modules, and automatic configuration and test stations. The new site is designed for the production of 5,000 BoosterBOXes per year. Due to the growing demand for electronic components, investments have already been made in recent months to establish reliable supply chains.
This ensures that all components are available to meet the rapidly growing demand for digital solutions for the processing industry.
