Fraunhofer IWU at the EuroBlech 2018

The future of sheet metal processing: Forming 4.0 and automotive production of one piece

October 19, 2018

What exactly does digitization accomplish in sheet metal processing? The scientists of Fraunhofer IWU answer this question at this year’s EuroBlech in Hannover by presenting the innovative production system “Forming 4.0”. From October 23 to 26, using the example of a miniature forming press and its digital twin, they show in Hall 11, Booth 25, how to avoid production standstill and scrap in the press plant by applying digitization, thus creating added value. In addition, the Fraunhofer researchers use a concept vehicle manufactured at the institute to demonstrate that automotive production of one piece can be realized economically.
