On Wednesday the 8th of November, FlexLink opened the doors to the Gothenburg facility for customers from all over Scandinavia.
The smart themed open house, interested a big crowd with small and personalized demonstrations of FlexLink’s products and solutions. Besides new conveyor systems, elevating solutions and engineering tools, the visitors could build and walk around in virtual reality simulations of a production line of their own creation.
Fredrik Boberg, General Manager of FlexLink’s Nordic sales unit and organizer of the event was happy with the customer engagement during the entire day. "One of the best things with arranging these kind of events is that the customer get a more complete picture of FlexLink and what we offer. Our offer has developed considerable the last few years, including several smart factory solutions that have a great impact on the production line efficiency. Our portfolio is now not only including state-of-the-art conveyor systems and handling solutions but also standardized line control and software applications. We are here to meet every customer’s individual need, working as system architects when needed to provide every customer with tailor made solutions."
In addition to the product and solution demonstrations, Mattias Byström FlexLink CEO, held a presentation on the smart factory concept, our vision and plans for tomorrow’s factories. According to Fredrik Boberg many of the visitors felt that they got a wider understanding of the concept.
"We are very happy with the number of people that wanted to come and see our new products and maybe even more, that they were interested in our broader offers and solutions we have coming in the future. I think that the smart factory concept is something that everyone in the industry has heard of, but also something that is hard to grasp. In dialogue with the visitors it was clear to us that we are on the right way with our developments and the values that our solutions is giving to our customers", said Fredrik.
During the open house, visitors could see FlexLink’s new smart twin track conveyor system for heavy loads, our new compact spiral elevator, our standardized palletizer, food and dairy conveyor solutions, simulation and engineering tools as well as solutions such as controls and production data management.
We hope all visitors had a good time with networking, inspired with new ideas and now have a better understanding of FlexLink and the different ways we could support them with their production.
