A factory tailored to
the digital age
The DewertOkin Technology Group’s new industrial park places digital technologies front and centre. They optimise workflows, automate stages in the manufacturing process, and boost efficiency.
The DewertOkin Technology Group’s new industrial park in Jiaxing, near Shanghai, is a digital 'dream factory'. Covering an area of 115,000 m2, it brings together product research and development, production and sales. Electronics, electric drives, control systems and the associated mechanical structures for smart furniture as well as for office and medical applications are developed and manufactured at the park. These products are used in an array of applications including movable upholstered furniture, massage chairs, cinema seats, recliners and adjustable beds, hospital and nursing beds, and adjustable office desks.
The holistically designed factory enables intelligent manufacturing under one roof, from ordering through to delivery. It operates via an information-based digital platform and incorporates a high level of automated production as well as smart warehousing and logistics. All processes are centrally controlled, enabling quick decisions about process changes. From the factory’s digital cockpit, workflows are monitored in real time and operational efficiency and costs are optimised.
The industrial park allows a greater proportion of value added to be generated in-house and creates space for future growth by consolidating existing sites. Modern workstations make work less physically demanding and simplify employees’ tasks. Advanced production and manufacturing models satisfy customer demand for prompt delivery of orders, while shortened logistics chains optimise workflows and increase efficiency.
