How energy is generated is the subject of extensive debate. But how it is used is hardly ever discussed. Yet efficiency measures are indispensable in achieving the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energies. The German efficiency researcher Alexander Sauer knows how industry can make its contribution.
The German trade magazine “MaschinenMarkt” put this question to industry experts and asked them about the criteria, materials, opportunities, and limits of automation. What is their advice to the industry? The magazine interviewed specialists from a number of suppliers. Thomas Dörig, Head of Solution Center, was given the opportunity to present Bystronic’s point of view.
Automation and industrial image processing are two fields of strategic importance for Bystronic. The combination of the two technologies is crucial for the optimization of the manufacturing processes of sheet metal processing companies. With its investment in the startup LIP Automation, Bystronic is positioning itself to play an active role in shaping key technologies of the future.
The future belongs to networked manufacturing. For Bystronic, however, the frequently quoted smart factory is just the beginning. The goal is to create an ecosystem that networks sheet metal processing companies with customers, suppliers, and shipping companies. The benefit for everyone involved: greater transparency and efficiency along the entire supply chain.
Industrial companies traditionally develop innovations on their own. However, more openness is needed to take advantage of the opportunities offered by digitization. Together with partners, Bystronic develops networked solutions for sheet metal processors. Because only those who look beyond the horizon can realize the vision of the Smart Factory.
This is precisely what Bystronic would like to discuss with visitors at the Blechexpo. At the exhibition, Bystronic will showcase its latest solutions in the fields of fiber laser cutting, tube processing, bending automation and software. An interview with Marius van der Hoeven, Managing Director of Bystronic Germany / Benelux.
