Hannover Messe 2018: digitalization in manufacturing

A forming press goes Industrie 4.0

Research News /

Digitalization in manufacturing will mean that “smart” machines learn to communicate with one another and function autonomously. Yet many manufacturers are uncertain about what to expect. How will this new connectivity work? And what benefits will it bring? Fraunhofer researchers at Hannover Messe (April 23–27, 2018) will be on hand to answer these questions. With the help of a miniature forming press and its digital twin, they will demonstrate the leverage that digitalization can bring to manufacturing.
