Working on the fundamental principle of Connected, Adaptive Production, the Fraunhofer IPTdevelops production processes and the associated production machinery along with the corresponding metrology, then interconnects all of the system components with one another for Industry 4.0.
The Fraunhofer IPT has decades of experience in the production technologies it utilizes in order to provide companies with a strong basis for the digitization of production processes, machine tools and equipment. Their technological expertise is complemented by new production organization methods and by the design of industrial software systems. The portfolio of the Fraunhofer IPT extends from the evaluation and design of technologies and process chains through planning and control concepts to quality management control circuits. We draw on our expertise to provide answers to a number of questions relating to Industry 4.0, which will arise in the near future.
