Manufacturing challenges

DIMOFAC is testing its solution in six factories (or pilot lines) belonging to the following companies: Albéa Services, ÉireComposites, Philips Consumer Lifestyle, VDL Industrial Modules, Schaltag.

Can you relate to their manufacturing challenges? If so, get notified when we launch our expression-of-interest call.

Reconfiguration time reduction of 50%


Cosmetics packaging

Because it produce packagings for various cosmetics with different brand identies and has to be up to speed with the rapidly changing trends, Albéa faces a high customisation demand.

However, producing a new product reference requires some reconfiguration that can last more than two hours.

Reconfiguration time reduction of 20%


Aerospace components

Manufacturing of aerospace components is characterised by low-volume batches (10-50 units). Currently, design and manufacturing stages are not integrated within the manufacturing chain. Therefore, the manufacturing of a new component requires a lot of manual efforts.

Reconfiguration time reduction of 30%



The Philips factory in Drachten specialises in the mass manufacturing of standardised personal care consumer goods. This makes it difficult to cope with low-volume batches and demand changes. Innovative solutions are needed to increase production line flexibility and bring down reconfiguration time.

Resource efficiency improvement of at least 10%


Machines, modules and products for various applications and markets

VDL designs, assembles and produces. The combination of different manufacturing processes, the small production batches along with the associated logistics creates a multi-disciplinary chaos. Multi-level planning and the irreducible machine reconfiguration time cost a lot of time and energy.

Reconfiguration time reduction of 75%


Interactive displays

Several manual processes in the factory such as labelling and quality control are time-consuming. Besides, many of the guidance instructions for workers are on paper. Digitalisation would enable the collection of production data to ensure better traceability and process documentation for quality purposes.

144 parts/employee shipped every day (vs. 120 now)


3D Printing

Several processes in the Sculpteo factory are still done manually. As a consequence, simple tasks such as unpacking and sorting need a relatively long time. Another challenge consists in refining traceability. Such a process will allow Sculpteo to realise very early if some products are defective and ensure maximum product quality.
