English term or phrase:traditional factory-floor
The company is a pioneer in extending... beyond its traditional factory-floor applications...
Explanation: This is the most widely-used word. It is almost synonimous of 'área de fabricación' but the word 'fabricación' implies that there is equipment in the area. Some factories don´t have any special equipment on the 'floor', they just have people performing their work manually on tables or some very simple conveyors.
In the manufacturing word, saying 'piso' is the traditional manufacturing floor. You may look up at the APICS Dictionary in Spanish.
