State-of-the-art technology allows the highest level of automated manufacturing

At its core, the standards of Industry 4.0 are directed at automation in the areas of product development, production planning, and production itself. Manufacturing engineering – i.e. the production of geometrically defined workpieces – aims to achieve a wide range of positive effects.

In addition to increasing in productivity, the main focus is on making manufacturing more flexible. Furthermore, manufacturing automation generally results in shorter manufacturing times.

Manufacturing automation reduces costs and increases quality

In addition to reducing costs, automation in the area of production also improves quality thanks to reproducible processes. And not to be forgotten: Whenever machines replace the activities of humans, there is an alleviation of the physical strain placed on employees.

Various technical devices play a central role in exploiting the full potential of the Industry 4.0 standard.

Examples of manufacturing automation

The intelligent arrangement of sensors/actuators and control, information, communication, process control, and robotics technology ensures the highest level of automated manufacturing. Below you will find some examples of machines that aid in the automation of manufacturing:
