CONCLUSION: A convincing example of the application of our modular functions: Step by step, individual workstations can be expanded into extensive production lines. Flexible extensions, both in the connection of special hardware and in the subsequent connection of an ERP interface, enable a custom-fit solution for every application. All construction variants were created with the new flowchart of the ELAM 5 new generation. ELAM 5 initiates order feedback, organises batch production for the assembly sequence and optimises the logging of data. A large performance spectrum that was realised within one year.
