FIM – Flexible Innovative Assembly System

The product idea for FIM (“Flexibles Innovatives Montagesystem” in German) arose from a partnership between ELABO and Fraunhofer IAO in Stuttgart. The core idea consisted of a height-adjustable assembly base system, consisting of two pillars and a work surface, which various mobile functional units could be flexibly ‘docked into’ both from the front and from the rear. Either for the supply of B- and C-parts or for the supply and removal of the products to be assembled. ELABO is a prestigious supplier in the field of Industry 4.0 (4.0 solution provider). Networked workstations, assembly control systems, individual, customisable assistance systems, worker guiding systems and workplace lighting – ELABO designs and supplies them all.
