"The digital factory using the example of Laemthong makes it clear that the food industry is more dependent than ever on the use of state-of-the-art software systems in order to meet global challenges with intelligent and sustainable solutions."

In order to remain competitive in times of advancing digitalization, the Laemthong Corporation Group Laemthong Corporation Group decided to be a pioneer in implementing the world's first Smart Factory in the meat industry. With a reliable IT partner at their side, the aim was to automate processes in production and logistics, to create intelligent and self-communicating machines, and to achieve complete transparency and traceability in the value chain. 

With digital solutions from software and hardware, all processes in production and logistics are now networked and run fully automated and with minimal use of personnel. 

And with these products it's possible:

From the digital recording of the raw materials in the goods receipt up to the automated packaging and delivery to the customer - with the latest technologies, the Smart Factory now runs almost by itself. 

3D simulations of all implementations in advance in a virtual test factory to pre-test and finalize the planned processes
Connection, control and live monitoring of all 6 Henneken tumblers
Fully automated gravity warehouse with a storage capacity of 2,750 iBoxes and 400 storage and retrieval per hour
Use of iBoxes with integrated RFID chips for the transparent tracking of all goods and information (BBD, batch, etc.) from the moment they are placed in storage
Automatic transfer of the iBoxes to their intended storage aisle (according to the defined storage strategy)
Real-time communication between machines, WMS and the SAP ERP system
Automatic retrieval of raw materials to the production machines (e.g. tumblers) based on the production order and defined storage strategy (FIFO, FEFO or according to 21 other, individually selectable attributes)
