Empir Industry has recently implemented a complete MES application at Hjulsbro Steel's factory on the outskirts of Linköping. Initially, there was a modern business system connected to remnants of an outdated ERP used by operators in production, along with a lot of paper handling. The goal was to create a production system that could grow and gather more important operational parameters from the process, while simplifying as much as possible for the operating personnel.
At Pågen's bakery in Malmö, capacity will increase through an investment in a completely new solution for customer order picking. Empir Industry delivers the digital part, Manufacturing Execution System, MES for the expansion of the bakery's customer order pick together with Teamster AB, which has the overall commitment.
Azelio has developed a storage solution for renewable energy. With their cutting-edge technology, they want to change the future of clean energy. Empir Industry was commissioned to deliver the digital production system to Azelio. The system will be run in two of their production facilities, in the new high-volume production that Azelio set up in Uddevalla, where Stirling engines are manufactured for shipping worldwide.
Empir Industry delivers application operation and IT infrastructure 24x7 that concerns warehouse operations with components such as hosting servers, fiber connection, local network, WiFi, and warehouse clients.
Always On Logistics
In early 2020, Empir Industry received a major order from e-commerce and fashion company NA-KD to deliver services and critical IT infrastructure to NA-KD's new automated Nordic robot warehouse in Landskrona, Sweden which went operational in August 2020. The warehouse is a state-of-the-art and automated distribution center of just over 23,000 sqm with the possibility of expansion. The warehouse is built around an AutoStore solution delivered by Element Logic and the WMS system Manhattan SCALE delivered by Idnet. With its new warehouse, NA-KD is able to continue to deliver on its strong sales growth and improve its lead times to all Nordic customers. Empir Industry's new concept Always On Logistics is the basis for the deal.
MES provides better quality outcomes and a greater spread of variants
Empir Industry has been working with ASSA ABLOY for many years and, along with other assignments, has delivered MES solutions to their factory in the Czech Republic where control systems for industrial doors are manufactured.
Automated production with MES
The international company Flokk, formerly Scandinavian Business Seating, manufactures office chairs. In order to become the leading supplier, they also have to be leaders in production, and Empir Industry is helping with the delivery of modern IT systems. AH-automation, a partner of Empir Industry, has created a modular system for production lines, which makes possible very rapid deployment.
