Technologies and Systems for Smart Production

The business unit Technologies and Systems for Smart Production addresses topics of the automation and digitization of production. The focus is on the provision of technologies for the individualization of products and sensor-based monitoring of production.

Digital production processes such as inkjet and aerosol jet printing processes enable resourceefficient mass production of intelligent and individualized products down to batch size 1. The necessary smart production environments are supported by our own sensor solutions. These include, in particular, sensor solutions, which monitor machine conditions and processes during production. Thus, e.g. in addition to the implementation of the plug and play functionality for the exchange of sensors in production environments, new sensor systems for harsh environments or for monitoring production resources such as greases and oils or for monitoring air quality will be developed.
