Description

Batch size 1 and mass customisation – these trends represent a real challenge for manufacturing companies and their suppliers because they have to manufacture ever smaller series without increasing the cost per unit. That’s where Dutch field lab “Flexible Manufacturing” comes in. One solution is the further integration of robots and smart sensors in production processes.
