Every project produced on this CNC is challenging. Going new ways means facing issues which we never knew or believed need to be taken into consideration. You sit there and think: ''ok… that going to be a problem''. And then you talk to the team and try to find the way to solve it. But this should be done at a very early stage. You really have problems when you discover issues during production or in a late project phase. Developing, planning and generating the NC code its sometimes 24 Hr of work of solving issues.
Korea was our first challenging project to produce but after that, we also worked on spectacular objects like Swatch HQ
in Switzerland. This project was huge – 230m long, consisting of 5000 building parts which needed to be produced on 4-5 machines at a time. Everyone talks about Factory 4.0. What is it and what does it mean for Blumer Lehman?
We are not thinking about that. We know that in our industry and the entire building industry, we first need to automate and industrialise processes. This is the first step. And when we master this, we can then think about how to connect and use the data better. Where do you think the digitization takes us by 2025? How do you see the construction industry developing ?
It will be automated, industrialised and there will be more prefabrication.
