Technically the system consists of overhead conveyors with individually addressable product carriers, automatically finding its way to the correct operation. It is monitored by a computer providing all necessary data for measuring and managing the process optimally. Furthermore, the system is highly flexible and can rapidly be modified to changes in the production line or the need for expansion.
From piles to unit production
The Eton system transports all the pieces of one complete product through the manufacturing process. An addressable product carrier takes all the pieces of one entire unit (i.e. for mattresses – panels, borders,, zippers etc.) through the different steps of production. Operations are performed at individual workstations. The end result is a cost-efficient product, processed from pieces to completion.
