The new technology trade fair “BLE.CH” took place for the first time in Bern. Bystronic Sales AG participated, and presented the vision of the Smart Factory.
BLE.CH is the new technology trade fair for
metal and steel processing in Switzerland. With over 100 exhibitors, it was
held for the first time in Bern from March 5 to 7, 2019. Due to the pressures
of competition and cost, many companies are ready to invest in future
technologies, to change the setup of existing production systems, and to
rethink their entire production chain.
BLE.CH is oriented towards sheet processing specialists from small and medium businesses, as well as from large companies. Therefore, Bystronic Sales AG was also represented at BLE.CH, where they presented the vision of the Smart Factory. Philipp Burgener, Managing Director of Bystronic Sales AG, explains in an interview why Bystronic was at BLE.CH.
Philipp Burgener: “We are consciously concentrating on the vision of sheet processing. BLE.CH offers us the opportunity to exchange with current and potential customers on automation and the Smart Factory.”
Philipp Burgener: “The Bystronic booth shows the vision of the Smart Factory – all of the process steps, from programming in cutting and bending to automation and monitoring.”
Philipp Burgener: “Through this exchange, we want to inspire customers to think about their production processes. In doing so, we hope that customers will consider the Smart Factory and inquire with us, as a solution provider, for support in this matter.”
Philipp Burgener: “The Swiss market requires company-specific automation solutions. That means flexible, automated productions. The cost pressure is very high. In other words, series production should already be possible starting with the first prototype.”
