Optimal material utilization

...through full transparency on the entire stock (tanks, long & short blocks, residual blocks)


Reduced curing time

...through real-time monitoring and automatic shifting of blocks


Complete traceability

...from the finished goods to the respective machine runs


Reduction of manual process steps

...through automatic, operator-independent processing, from the order to the finished cut


Scrap reduction and quality improvement

...through ideal setting of the foaming unit, optimal trimming and ideal nesting


Automatic checks of quality and dimensions

...for further processing and inbound/outbound logistics

SOPHIE – Modules and database

It is the interplay of all modules that reveals Sophie’s true strength the comprehensive networking of the entire production.


The database SOPHIEdata is SOPHIE’s heart.


SOPHIEconnect is the basis upon which the different systems communicate with each other.


SOPHIEproduce automates the whole production chain and controls the entire production hall.


SOPHIEinventory provides a comprehensive inventory of the tank storage, curing racks, crane storage, short block storage and glue drying racks.


SOPHIEprepare plans process steps in advance.


With the module SOPHIEmeasure, the measuring of long and short blocks, sheets and finished mattresses becomes very easy.


The module SOPHIEidentify makes every individual production step accurately traceable, both during production and afterwards.


This intelligent module provides data which enables predictive planning of the various production steps.


SOPHIEaccess creates a gateway into the world of data analysis and production improvement.
