Helping to design the production of tomorrow

As a driver of innovation in mechatronic drive technology, we are also involved in the implementation of Industry 4.0. Our activities are centered around the realization of smart production methods as well as the development of intelligent products, e.g. for mechanical engineering or logistics.

We are advancing the digital transformation of WITTENSTEIN in our Innovation Factory and the Urban Production facility in Fellbach. The goal is a smart factory – with the person as the decision maker at the center of production. Qualified support for the tasks involved in this role will be offered by networked physical and virtual production elements as well as appropriate control systems.
