cts – more. than. automation. – more than just a slogan for the machine builder and automation specialist cts! The company offers the highest level of expertise in all areas of process and production automation as well as advanced solutions in industrial data processing and energy technology.

Founded in 2006, the company employs more than 350 people and has its headquarters in Burgkirchen in southern Germany. Further branches/offices in Germany are located in Abensberg, Penzberg and Leipzig. A large part of the workforce works in Austria in Vienna, Schörfling am Attersee, Lenzing, Raaba-Grambach and Linz.

Significant increase in quality and safety during packaging

“We have a very broad base and are constantly expanding our range of products and services,” reports Alfred Pammer, authorized signatory of cts GmbH. “Our aim is to develop high-tech solutions for our customers and set new standards.” A good example of this is the AutoBagging Tool (ABT) for the fully automatic packaging of FOSB. “The airtight packaging of products for transportation to a processing plant is a complex process and is subject to the strictest criteria; cts was able to fully automate this packaging process,” explains Alfred Pammer. The system offers a considerable increase in quality and safety during packaging as well as a high level of relief for employees. The packaging machine, the test chamber, the robots and all other components are placed in a complete cell. This has an infeed conveyor for the unpackaged packs and an outfeed conveyor for the packaged products. Extensive optical quality checks as well as labeling (including checking the print) and folding/gluing the bags are carried out entirely in the ABT.

New standards in automation in the electronics industry

The company is also setting new standards in the field of automation in the electronics industry with the cts “Smart Factory”. “Starting with goods receipt with complete reel recording and storage in the Gigaflex Storage Center to buffer the PCB magazines In the cts Smart Warehouse and Mini Smart Warehouse, cts also offers solutions beyond this,” reports Philipp Eberherr, responsible for intralogistics solutions at cts, and adds: “We are experts in smart intralogistics and support customers as a reliable partner in the transformation to the smart factory.”

With the Gigaflex Reel Storage, cts Smart Warehouse and Mini Smart Warehouse storage solutions, cts offers an intelligent, modular and highly effective option for storing component reels and PCB magazines. Thanks to the significant reduction in store floor occupancy, these enable valuable space to be saved in the production area. The customized mini buffer solutions (cts transfer stations) reliably compensate for small asynchronies in the production process.

Alfred Pammer: “The material flow can be optimized by automatically supplying the storage solutions and systems with AMRs of different sizes and load capacities. This also makes the process more flexible and reliable and enables traceability.”

The use of different AMRs, sometimes from several manufacturers, is easily possible with the cts middleware sloXis®. sloXis® combines all the elements of a modern industrial system: from AMRs from various manufacturers with different functionalities to small buffers and smart warehouses. The software forms the central interface to the MES/ERP. Nothing stands in the way of the conversion of electronics production to a smart factory!

Extensive experience in the pharmaceutical industry

Since its foundation, cts GmbH has been active in the pharmaceutical industry and has extensive experience in process automation in this sector. “Pharmaceutical and biotechnological production facilities are faced with the challenge of having to react ever more quickly and flexibly to product and process changes. With the modular proXcab system, cts has developed a tailor-made but flexible solution for control, regulation and GMP-compliant recording,” reports Peter Sommerauer from the technical sales department proudly. At the same time, cts has also entered the field of radiopharmaceuticals in addition to the production of active pharmaceutical ingredients. The production of individually dosed radioactive drugs requires a very complex manufacturing process. The system developed by cts was not only designed, developed, built, validated and installed in terms of automation, but also in terms of process engineering.
