Manufacturing & Automation
Rapidly evolving manufacturing and automation technologies have enabled no end of products to be designed and produced from the greatest variety of raw materials and featuring the most differing properties. This trend will only accelerate faster as production facilities are networked in Industry 4.0, computer capabilities continue to rise and production technologies also cultivate further developments including generative manufacturing processes, for example. The integrating of Industry-4.0-functionalities into formerly exclusively mechanical products creates new challenges for the manufacturing and production concepts of today and the future. This development means that companies within the manufacturing and automation sector will continue to fine-tune their focus on specialized fields of application.
