Bathtub assembly process
The Villeroy and Boch project was done together with TNO. As innovation continues, the fittings in bathtubs became more complex.
The load and unhandy handling by an operator was an issue for the cycle time as well as assembly flexibility, primarily due to a larger product mix. In the new process, these mixes are taken into account. It allows a much higher flexibility, eliminating predecessor steps, where possible.
