Germany’s first electric car factory sets new standards
The world’s largest car manufacturer is getting ready for the future. Over the next few years, Volkswagen will make a radical transition to e-mobility, and the Volkswagen plant in Zwickau, Germany, will play a key role in this process. With the ID.3 model, the blueprint for the new generation of electric cars is being created here. The bending experts from Bystronic are also on board.
The energy transition can only be achieved by improving efficiency
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.
Sheet metal processing: When automation pays off
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.
Shaping innovative technologies from the outset
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.
An ecosystem for the sheet metal processing industry
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.

Joining forces to serve the customers
Bystronic Benelux BV has taken over its long-standing service partner Weber Laserservice BV. The integration of Weber Laserservice will enable Bystronic to provide its customers with even more efficient service, while also strengthen its market position and boosting its second-hand machine market.
Out of isolation, into the network
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.
