This vision was realised more than a decade before the start of the fourth industrial revolution – Industry 4.0 in abbreviated form – in the mid 2000s.
Even with the beginning of the “Industry 4.0” era, our vision is full of dynamics. We will use all our strength and expertise to develop new industrial standards that enable our users to realise an integrated, digital value chain in single and small batch production. Cross-technology approach, fast and easy – Plug & Play.
We continue to focus our capabilities on data security and data consistency: we use all established and future CAD/CAM systems as a starting point. We automatically create digital twins of the 3D constructions of our customers. Our software solutions completely avoid possible human errors due to the resulting G codes and machine data as audit-proof master.
We think holistically in the interests of our customers: with our EDM machines, our automation and software solutions, we have developed strategies that protect our customers’ investments in the long term and in a sustainable manner. In this way, we want to ensure that the increasingly scarce “human resource” in constantly aging societies is only needed there in the processes where no other alternative can be found.
As pioneers of non-cutting shaping, we will also bring new customer applications to industrial maturity by means of lasers.
Using all our visions, we want to inspire not least Generation Y (as well as subsequent generations) to revive industrial craftsmanship for us and our customers.
