Turnkey and Industry 4.0

Talking to Plas.TV, the ARBURG Managing Directors Gerhard Böhm and Heinz Gaub provide insights on their activities in the areas of Turnkey and Industry 4.0. ARBURG also presents highlights of these at the Chinaplas 2017 trade fair in Hall 5.1, Stand A42.

“Our injection moulding machines have many production efficiency features and, for us, production efficiency means using Industry 4.0 elements,” says Gerhard Böhm, illustrating his point with a specific turnkey example. Heinz Gaub explains: “Industry 4.0 means that information and production technology come together in our customers' injection moulding shops, forming a cyberphysical production system.” A smart machine, a higher-level host computer system as well as interfaces and information logs all interact for this purpose.
