Eurofoam launches operation of first fully-automated production line for foam mattress cores

Eurofoam launches operation of first fully-automated production line for foam mattress cores at its plant in Saxony, Germany. This new system designed by Eurofoam incorporates all processing steps - from foam blocks to stacks of shipment-ready mattress cores - that are controlled and monitored using RFID technology. Large batch orders can be produced with top efficiency, just-in-time. This system is the first of its kind in Europe, and has an annual capacity of 1,000,000 mattress cores.

Previously, mattresses were produced primilary by hand and various individual production stations. Now, thanks to the new production system, several different customer orders can be processed and made ready for shipment simultaneously. This will not only substantially lower the production time for mattress cores as well as shorten individual production pathways, it will also additionally improve quality and increase flexibility. 

Using an ingenious transportation system, the mattress cores are moved along a multi-staged system path. When regular or unscheduled repair and maintenance work have to be conducted, a buffer station for interim storage helps prevent production stops. At the end of the mattress line, a chip automatically places the core, based on customer and order data, in one of five stacking locations, while simultaneously controlling the proper stack height for loading into delivery vehicles.
