thyssenkrupp Story – Industry 4.0 reached France
“We use ProGlove because it is simple and because we like it to keep it easy”
Engineering tomorrow together with ProGlove
Thyssenkrupp is one of the world’s largest component and system producers for the automotive industry. In the French facility of the multinational company in Hambach, ProGlove has been used since 2017. By integrating the smart glove with a fellow leader of engineering in France, ProGlove is helping to shape tomorrow’s industry.
At thyssenkrupp, ProGlove is used for sequencing, where the worker can now freely move between two workstations. Furthermore, thyssenkrupp also uses the smart glove on their assembly line to simplify workflows.
In order to complete thyssenkrupp’s vision, several processes at their facility in Hambach were improved. In addition to the advantage of hands-free operation, the ergonomics of the workers’ process has been enhanced.
