In July the SmartFactoryOWL in Lemgo starts together with our partners Arburg and Kuka - a data driven injection moulding by artificial intelligence. Around the 2 Mio. Euro promoted BMWi AI-Reality Lab a cooperative of ten partners were built which develop a sustainable injection moulding of the future in the Smart Factory OWL in Lemgo.

And we as a automation specialist are part of it! "Only through an integral transformation of all production processes and specifications into the digital world, AI is able to unfold the full potential - and open up enterprises an added value. The AI Real Lab offers therefor the right platform. "Within our participation we'd like to support cross-company technology transfer", Hermann Müller, owner and general manager of fpt Robotik, confirms.

 

And which product goes into production? Reusable cups out of CO2-neutral plant-based material of the Cuna Products GmbH, a Start-up from Mettmann. Those cups are produced by bio-based plastics which going without oil and are reusable and recyclable. The particular: not only the applied material out of regrowing raw materials is sustainable for the production but also the specially organized recycling system of Cuna.

All the information about the actual production, the participants and the AI-Reality Lab you gonna find here: SmartFactoryOWL.

Virtual talent management in speed dating format

This was a very successful event! Yesterday morning the virtual "Bildungskompass" (comprises about 50 pupils) took place in the school complex of Amtzell. On this note a big compliment to our youngsters who got for the first time the chance to perform as stand personnel and share their experiences. Melanie Blas and Milena Kaiser responded questions regarding the commercial education and Alexander Zimmerer gave insights into the technical occupations requiring training. "That was much fun and also very instructive and exciting", they all together agreed.
