Application Center Industrie 4.0

In the Application Center Industrie 4.0, which we have set up together with the Fraunhofer IPA in the IFF test hall, the following IFF machines are available:

Certified further training for industrial engineering, work planning and production optimization

The advanced Industrial engineering learning factory is a cooperation of the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA with the Institute of Industrial Manufacturing and Factory IFF of the University of Stuttgart.

With this professional training for industrial engineering, work planning and production optimization you:
  • strengthen your responsiveness to market changes and recognize the relationship to the tasks of production optimization
  • learn methods for identifying weaknesses in the factory and for value stream-oriented production planning
  • apply the learned methods independently in practice-oriented scenarios
    (Introduction of new products and technologies, product mix shift, etc.)
  • get to know the potential of digital tools for planning support
  • put the planning results, which have been worked out in the team, into the learning environment and experience the planning success in the ongoing production
  • benefit from experienced speakers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Engineering and Automation IPA, the Institute of Industrial Manufacturing and Management (IFF) and the German MTM Association e.V.

 

The Training Center has a homepage of its own in German.

In the production process of the learning factory, we use an ARBURG
ALLROUNDER 220S to make our injection moldings ourselves.

On the injection molding machine inserts are made in different colors for our aluminum cups.

This enables us to create different versions of our desk set and to map further customer requirements in the training scenario.

The IFF has developed a continuous factory coordinate system for transformable production systems and has implemented it in the learning factoryfor advanced industrial engineering. The factory coordinate system enables the real-time, scaling-independent combination of the digital image of the factory (digital shadow) and real production. For this purpose, various detection systems installed in the hall are grouped into an order system according to the necessary accuracy class and the acquired data, based on their resolution, time-related in a uniform coordinate system. Through the resulting digital shadow of the complete production, the system complexity can be reduced   task-specifically. Necessary decisions can be supported by real-time central or decentralized simulations with real-time data so that system changes  - due to new restrictions - can be achieved faster and more economically. By reflecting the digital shadow back into real production via the installed projectors, deviations in real time can be made visible, problems can be remedied and downtimes can be reduced before they occur. This is intended to strengthen and secure the competitiveness of networked production facilities.

Chiron FZ08

In addition to small parts and clamping devices for the measurement technology, a large part of the demo product for the learning factory is produced on the machining center.
The processing center is also part of the process chain demonstration at the IFF.
 

The Ardenne device allows the application of thinnest layers in a vacuum in order to generate novel surface properties.
