Short product lifecycles, customized products, a large number of variants and high flexibility: manufacturing companies are faced with the challenge of adapting their production systems. The requirements for production systems are constantly increasing while at the same time companies have to manage the complexity. Classical production systems are increasingly reaching their limits.
The Fraunhofer IPT therefore researches and develops new manufacturing and assembly concepts for flexible process control. The focus is on cyber-physical, self-optimizing and dynamically interconnected production systems that react adaptively to changing conditions. The modularity and reconfigurability of systems in combination with intelligent process control enables efficient production of products up to batch size 1.
