The Sundwiger Messingwerk GmbH & Co. KG, a company in the Diehl Group and one of Germany's leading producers of brass wires and strips as well as other copper alloys, has contracted PSI with the delivery of PSImetals as the manufacturing execution system (MES) for its rolling mill at the Hemer plant. The first contract from the Sundwiger Messingwerk contains, along with the MES solution, the product maintenance for a number of years. The planned project schedule is about three quarters of a year.
In two additional stages it is intended to expand the MES with PSImetals functionalities for production planning and the sequencing. The goal of the entire project is to reduce inventory while simultaneously increasing adherence to delivery schedules and shortening throughput time. In the selection phase, PSI was able to win out over a well-established MES supplier. With this first contract from Sundwiger Messingwerk, PSI is also expanding its market share as a specialised provider of production management software in the nonferrous metals segment.
