5G for production

Let's innovate the manufacturing industry: Discover and test new applications for 5G in production environments with us!

We are also involved in these topics:


EPIC Centre of Excellence in Production Informatics and Control

EPIC is a long-term cooperation between the Fraunhofer Institutes IPT, IPK, IPA, Fraunhofer Austria and the Hungarian partners of EPIC Inno Labs, SZTAKI and BME. The cooperation's goal is to establish a center of excellence for Cyber Physical Production Systems



In the HEAD project, Fraunhofer IPT and SCAI are researching how tool wear can be determined automatically from acoustic emission with the help of machine learning. Our goal is to increase both the robustness of the production process and the availability of machines, while maintaining a high production quality.


30th Aachen Machine Tool Colloquium

Turning Data into Sustainability – Under the new guiding theme of AWK'21, the aim is to shed light on how manufacturing companies can achieve rapid, error-free improvements in series production through demand-driven data acquisition and machine learning, and how they can thereby produce resiliently and sustainably.
