Processes must run synchronously
Ensuring this is the job of the team of Rainer Brehm, the Head of Process Engineering at the second-oldest plant within the Geberit family. “Machine builders generally take the shortest possible cycle times as the yardstick, whereas we contribute our experience in cistern manufacturing and attach importance to the processes as a whole running synchronously.” This means that the concealed cistern blanks have to be checked, conveyed away, processed, checked again, packaged and shipped at least as quickly as they leave the Mammoths. Otherwise, a jam can occur.
Since the launch of the first concealed cistern over 50 years ago, Geberit has continually refined the technology. New functions have been added and installation has also been continuously simplified. 2008 saw a milestone with the launch of the UP320 (now called Geberit Sigma concealed cistern 12 cm) – the first cistern that can be installed without any tools.
