Smart factory.

BOGE says it has placed itself at the cutting edge of compressor manufacture by investing [euro]2 million in creating a 'smart factory' at its German headquarters in Bielefeld.

The company says the 2,000[m.sup.2] smart factory, which manufactures BOGE's HST (high-speed turbo) oil-free compressor, monitors, controls and optimises manufacturing to maximise product quality and reliability, and ensure there are no faults during production.

Boge also says the factory also facilitates traceability so that, in the rare event that there is a problem, it can be identified and corrected quickly. Daniel Mittag, product manager, explained: "In case of a failure, the smart factory helps us to diagnose and trace problems."
