The Karlsruhe Research Factory, founded and jointly operated by Fraunhofer IOSB, Fraunhofer ICT and the wbk Institute for Production Technology of KIT, creates a unique environment for researching the future topic of “intelligent production“ on real processes in a practical way. Supported by the latest methods of Digitalization and Artificial Intelligence, science and industry are jointly transferring innovative, challenging manufacturing processes from the idea into operational practice in the shortest possible time.
The aim is for manufacturing companies as well as machine and plant manufacturers to be able to serve the market with the new products much earlier. In this way, “immature“ - still in the development stage - processes can be industrialised much more quickly. In addition, established processes are also to be further improved through the use of intelligent production engineering methods and the bundling of the research partners' competences.
