INDUSTRIE 4.0 IN AGRICULTURAL MACHINERY
The agricultural machinery industry is one of the pioneers of the digital transformation. It was digitalizing machinery and devices long before the term Industrie 4.0 even existed. VDMA members tell us how they are putting digital networks into practice today.
SMARTLY COMBINING INDUSTRIE 4.0 AND LEAN PRODUCTION
The smart factory is bringing about a winning combination of Industrie 4.0 and lean production - two approaches that pursue the same goal. VDMA members are showing how this can be realized in practice and which hurdles are still to be overcome.
INDUSTRIE 4.0 - SECURE DIGITAL IDENTITIES CREATE TRUST
According to Industrie 4.0 experts, secure digital identities (SDIs) are the only way to ensure cybersecurity. VDMA members demonstrate what these are, where they can be used, and which technologies are currently in development.
INTELLIGENT MEASURING TECHNOLOGY FOR THE FACTORY OF THE FUTURE
Measuring devices are indispensable in the world of Industrie 4.0. Production measuring technology already plays an important role in the smart factory, while networked measuring technology is crucial in digital production. An analysis.
MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY - ELECTRONIC HEALING POWER
Some people criticize high-tech medicine, while others praise it. The fact remains that when equipment and people interact, it can save many lives. In many cases, this requires electronic components without which many medical devices would not work.
TECHNICAL BUILDING EQUIPMENT - INCREASED EFFICIENCY AND TRANSPARENCY THANKS TO DIGITAL SOLUTIONS
All phases in the life cycle of a building are digitalized - from planning and construction, to usage and operation. Buildings of the future need to be smart - and VDMA members vividly demonstrate that this is no longer merely a vision of the future.
HUMANS AND ROBOTS WORK HAND IN HAND
Right next to the worker, a robot rearranges components for a common rail high-pressure injection pump - without a safety fence. The inventiveness and creativity of Bosch researchers made this possible by developing a sensitive artificial skin for the robot.
