The training demonstrator at the Mittelstand 4.0 Competence Center Kaiserslautern illustrates, in an entertaining way, how digitalization works in manufacturing. Visitors to the BMWi stand (Hall 8, C28) at Hannover Messe can produce an individual game cube in batch size 1.
Supported by modern assistance systems, the demonstrator guides the visitor through the individual processing steps of the cube. The aim is to point out the different possibilities of networked production and make it a tangible experience. The demonstrator was developed for the training program at Competence Center Kaiserslautern and provides ideas about how to approach digitalization in a production environment step by step with the aid of assistance systems like 3D printers and RFID.
The Mittelstand 4.0 Competence Center (SME 4.0) Kaiserslautern is composed of four partners: The technology initiative SmartFactoryKL (coordinator), the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (RD Innovative Factory Systems and Institute for Information Systems), Kaiserslautern University of Technology, and the Institute for Technology and Labor, ITA (German: Institut für Technologie und Arbeit).
