Better Factory is calling all manufacturing companies, artists and tech suppliers to team up and get the chance to receive up to 200.000 EUR in funding. The call closes on 15 July 2021. Find more information and apply to the open call here.

L4MS Success Story: Production waste – good starting point when automating intra-factory logistics

KLS Ljubno is a family business producing starter ring gears for flywheels of passenger cars, cargo vehicles and movable working machinery since the 1972. It is part of a global supply chain in the automotive industry. The factory premises of 30.000 square meters are located in the northern Slovenia. Automated logistics would reduce production lead time and the stock needed at each workstation. The L4MS experiment offered an opportunity to weight the effects of automated intra-factory logistics. Read the full story here.
