“Quick delivery capability even when producing a single item – this is the ideal situation in flexible sheet metal processing. And exactly this is an important goal of Industry 4.0. Thus, whenever we talk about Industry 4.0, we are addressing very central needs on the part of our customers. We are focusing on solutions which offer our customers very concrete utility. Flexibility and productivity throughout the plant are the primary goal. To do this, we are successively modifying our products, our processes and even our ways of thinking to suit the new challenges.
TRUMPF is offering, even now, central elements with which customers can gradually work their way into this field. With these elements the customers can regulate their production, for instance, both more quickly and more flexibly. Transparency and effective control of manufacturing are to become as simple as administering a bank account. We are absolutely sure that Industry 4.0 will be offering suitable tools so that our customers retain their international competitiveness, especially in locations in high-wage countries.”
