Industry 4.0 for CFRP production

‘Automatically lighter’ … that is the vision for future production. By focusing on making processes and plants more flexible, the DLR Center for LightweightProduction-Technology is seeking to address current problems in the field of automation for aeronautics and space applications.

The development work focuses on the following areas:

  • Data-driven development.
  • Simpler programming of equipment using the automatic generation of programs and sensor-based systems.
  • Architectures and methods for rapid changing of processes and products on robot-based production platforms.
  • Increasing the productivity of automated systems by orchestrating processes Integrating humans into a future production environment by means of collaborative robot systems and interactive user interfaces.
