“Connected Adaptive Production – From design to final parts” – Presented by Kristian Arntz, ACAM Aachen Center for Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing becomes an industrial technology nowadays. What started as a rapid prototyping technology then became a media and hobby manufacturers hype finally approaches the factories of the world. While processes, material availability and productivity are getting adult, a crucial lack remains unsolved: realizing integrated IT infrastructures in order to bring together conventional and additive manufacturing. It is not only a question of data formats that has to be solved – it is about connected, adaptive process chains which are needed in future facilities. The presentation will showcase actual developments and applications of Industrie 4.0 following the idea of “Connected, Adaptive Production”.
