The FAHRION Process

Integration of customer know-how and process expertise

From product to process to factory

  • Product:
    Planning begins with an in-depth analysis of the customer’s product.
    Here, the customer’s specific know-how is used to precisely understand the product requirements and create the basis for the process design.
  • Process:
    FAHRION Engineering develops individual manufacturing processes by incorporating the customer’s process expertise. This collaboration ensures that the processes are not only efficient, but also optimally adapted to the customer’s production conditions.
  • Factory:
    Joint planning leads to the development of a factory layout that takes into account both FAHRION’s expertise and the customer’s specific knowledge. This enables the factory to be optimally aligned with the production targets.

Further information can be found under holistic factory planning and under factory structure planning and factory planning.
