Digitalization in real productionWhere should the manufacturing industries start in order to remain successful and competitive over the long term? Greater flexibility, higher efficiency, and a faster time to market aren’t enough. Other factors also have to be considered, including quality and sustainability. Our Arena of Digitalization is an actual production environment where you can experience how data works as a key success factor – data that’s available in all production plants, including yours!
Generate knowledge from data
Whether you operate machine tools or other production machines in your manufacturing plant, you’re confronted with extremely complex challenges on a daily basis. Discover how you can master these challenges in the practical examples at our Electric Motor Factory in Bad Neustadt. We’ll demonstrate the potential of digitalization using typical machines – all under the motto “We show what we use.”
At the heart of this approach is the abundance of data from a variety of sources that’s generated along the entire value chain – data that, until now, has often been used too little or not at all. Digitalization makes it possible to gather this data, understand it, and use it appropriately to continuously optimize processes based on the knowledge acquired.
Exploit potential across disciplines
The Arena of Digitalization highlights all that can be achieved when the digital and real worlds become one. The conditions for this convergence are created by the digital twin. This precise, virtual model of reality permits a constant exchange of data across all disciplines and specialties. Silo thinking is a thing of the past, and unlimited collaboration has become the order of the day. For example, information from a downstream phase in the product lifecycle can be applied to future optimizations in the design phase. Thanks to this data transparency and the constant exchange of information, you can easily and continuously optimize everything from virtual product development and virtual production planning to real production and the end product.
- Digitally design, simulate, test, and optimize products with no need for real prototypes
- Digitally plan, simulate, commission, and optimize entire plants
- Continuously optimize products and production by evaluating performance data
