ARBURG Innovation Hub Karlsruhe

ARBURG is a globally leading and prospering manufacturer of machines for plastics processing and also develops the hardware and software for its control systems itself and is a renowned manufacturer in Germany in this field as well. In order to attract more IT and software experts in the future, ARBURG opened a new location called the "Innovation Hub" in Karlsruhe this year.

New ARBURG location for software development

The new location is predestined for the ARBURG Innovation Hub because computer science courses are offered in the immediate vicinity at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences (HKA). In addition, the company headquarters in Lossburg is only about 100 kilometres away, so regular face-to-face contact is possible. ARBURG's Technology, Human Resources, IT and Building Technology departments jointly implemented the Innovation Hub project in less than a year, from the idea to the opening. In January 2023, eight software experts started work in the new ARBURG premises. Their areas of expertise include data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), digital twins and robotics – an all-round exciting field of work.
