Electrolux is the world's biggest manufacturer of kitchen appliances, vacuum cleaners and garden machinery. The company produces refrigerators in Mexico for export to the USA.
Design, engineering and commissioning of a complete production system for refrigerator cabinets and doors. The system has seven units: bulk & blend, conveying, moulds, metering machine, premixing, fixtures for the cabinet and flexible presses for foam-filling the doors.
To cut cycle times to an absolute minimum. To design a system with built-in expandability for the future. And to achieve the best combination of these two goals.
Electrolux decided on a single vendor system and first-class quality. For the first time in such a project, KraussMaffei operated as general contractor, supplying all the machines - from material conditioning to the moulds. Another important factor was the local presence of highly trained KraussMaffei service technicians.
Commissioning the system was a complex challenge which Electrolux tackled with masterly skill. Together with KraussMaffei, Electrolux has set an engineering and economic milestone for the white goods industry.
