Digitization, the transfer of information in paper form to digital form, is evident everywhere. Within the manufacturing industry, digitization mainly relates to product simulations, the link between design and production or the digital management of stock or production.
The Betech Group has grown steadily in recent years due to a significant increase in customers active in the high-tech, building, sustainable energy and automotive industry (e-mobility). Due to new construction in Hoogeveen, the Betech Group's head office is expanding to 10,000 m2 of production area.
Due to the recent investments that Betech Plastics has made in the machine park, not only the capacity has increased enormously, but the possibilities of turning and milling have also been expanded.
Betech Injection Moulding has been investing heavily in new machines since 1 January last year. With the regularity of the clock, new injection moulding machines have been added to the Steenwijk factory hall. "We are running a continuous helix." says director-shareholder Gijs Jansen.
Machining in the future: data driven manufacturing. Digitization will play a very important role in the machining process; the programming of machines and robots has already become more user-friendly, but this will be simplified even further by the application of Big Data.
