ARBURG receives award for innovative strength
Katrin Schütz pointed to ARBURG as a perfect example of a company that has distinguished itself for decades through its innovative strength and, thanks to its 30 years of experience in IT-networked production, counts among the pioneers in the implementation of "Industry 4.0". ARBURG received the award in the "New Software/Networking Solutions" and "New Production Process" categories for its demonstration of "flexible high-volume production of single-unit batches".
"The production of 'smart' luggage tags offers impressive proof of how ARBURG products can be used to implement Industry 4.0 in practice, customising high-volume parts in batch sizes down to a single unit and thereby adding value during the manufacturing process," said Katrin Schütz, describing ARBURG's outstanding innovative strength.
