Industry & Production - Sauer-Danfoss

More time for what really matters

After Sauer-Danfoss installed balers from Bramidan, the efficiency in the production increased considerably. At the same time they have gained more space in the production, less collections of waste, and increased safety for the employees.

Balers boost productivity at Sauer-Danfoss

At the factory of the world-renowned hydralics systems producer, Danish Sauer-Danfoss, components for the systems are delivered, safely wrapped in cardboard, paper and plastic to protect the contents against rust. When repacked for use at the assembly line, all packaging must be removed immediately.

The components are delivered, safely wrapped in cardboard, paper and plastic to protect the contents against rust. When repacked for use at the assembly line, all packaging must be removed immediately. Therefore the waste is compacted in Bramidan balers.

Efficient workflow

Four years ago Sauer-Danfoss introduced the balers, when the company reorganized the working routines in the factory, using LEAN principles.

“The balers had to fulfil four main purposes. We wanted to increase the production area; to have less waste collections, no containers at the exits, and finally we wanted to increase safety in the production area”, says Henning Sørensen, strategic purchaser at Sauer-Danfoss.

Four of the 10 balers were installed in the section, which manufactures control units. The balers are placed strategically in the fitting areas where all received parts are unpacked. Placing the balers so close to the waste source, saves time in the daily routines.

“We used to have containers standing outside, and the employees had to go outside with waste. Now they throw it directly into a baler. The compacted bale is picked up by a forklift, which takes it away for recycling,” tells Henning Sørensen.

Secure with leasing

All balers are leased with a full service agreement. This means that adjustments, repairs and maintenance are done automatically. A technician from Bramidan visits the company once a year and carries out a service check on all the machines. Sauer-Danfoss knows the monthly costs, and there are no additional invoices.

“At Sauer-Danfoss we have a principle – we only do what we are good at. We buy services, which are outside our core business. A leasing agreement is the best solution for us, because we do not have the resources to maintain the machines ourselves,” says Henning Sørensen, who expresses great satisfaction with the balers.

“We have really good experience with the machines from Bramidan, and I do not remember any break downs at all. This is probably due the continuous service agreement, but it’s also a proof of quality products,” he adds.

We wanted to optimize the production area and have less waste collections, but also to increase safety.
