Our Smart Factory in Mos - Spain

On June 19th, we celebrated the opening of our new plant in Mos, Spain, a so called Smart Factory. It uses the latest digital technologies in production. It enables BENTELER to serve its customers faster, more efficiently and more flexibly in time, in quality and in cost. BENTELER implements specialized employee training programs to further enhance employees´ competencies with regards to new technologies. We are one of the largest employers in the region of Galicia and are creating an additional 175 jobs with this new plant.

Digital technologies from production to logistics

Constructed as BENTELER’s first Smart Factory in Region Southern Europe, this new site will use the latest digital technologies. For example:

Autonomous Intelligent Vehicles (AIV) ensure an autonomous, fast flow of products and material in the plant.

Machines in the plant monitor their own status and request maintenance in good time. This kind of predictive maintenance avoids production stops and minimizes service costs.

Big data architectures offer the possibility to evaluate and handle large amounts of data.

The plant uses 3D printing for the design of tools and consumables.
