Product description

The Fraunhofer IWU will be in Hannover to showcase the Machine 4.0 concept. In a live demonstration featuring a fully operational forming press and its digital twin, they will show how manufacturing can become highly successful with digitization. The forming press manufactures test components live at the fair, also including permanent condition monitoring, keeping an eye on tool and material, which opens up the possibility of 100-percent production. This, in turn, offers the possibility of substantial increases in machine availability and service life as well as a significant reduction in tool setup times.

Benefits for the customer:
- Flexibilization of production
- Avoiding scrap
- Avoiding downtimes
- Increase in machine availability toward 100 percent
- Increasing the service life of machines

Unique selling proposition:
- First-time realization of a fully functional Industrie-4.0 system of this complexity

- Users and manufacturers of presses and machine tools
