We has always been good at adapting to the trends in many different industries. A new industry, which we have focused on, is the modular housing/pavilion building industry in which automation is a natural development. As we announced at the beginning of the year, we “landed” a big order from Derome Plusshus in Sweden. Derome Plusshus produce modular wooden houses with modern and rational volumetric technology. The enterprise deliver industrially optimized and purpose-built apartment complexes and group houses to professional customers in Sweden and Norway. Inspired by the assembly line production used in the car industry Derome Plusshus changed the whole concept of building houses when planning the new factory at varberg/Varö. .
All building modules for a house are now installed on a long handling system, which includes very long and wide chain conveyors and other handling equipment, so that at the end of the line a fully completed house is ready for pickup by truck. All modules are based on Q-System’s standard modules – only on a larger scale. Q-System have among other things developed the modules that can handle items up to 12,000 kg.
The bottom frame of the house is placed on the first station of the production line. Here the kitchen and the bath rooms are installed. Afterwards the house is transported onto the lift, which is then raised so that sewers and other piping under the house can be installed. Afterwards the house is lowered again and transported ahead to the next stations for further assembly. After the installation of the new production line Derome Plusshus will be able to manufacture 8 houses a day.
