3D printers open up additional production possibilities for filigree parts made of plastic, metal, ceramic or composite materials.
This part production goes much faster, saves material, is flexible and allows completely new shapes and designs.
Despite the entry of large companies there is still enough space for smaller innovative start-ups.
A variety of applications in development and production, but also in maintenance, storage and health care point to a great future of this technology.
Virtual scoreboards, data glasses and smartphone apps will also be used in education and make rapid progress.
Voice and gesture controls round off this area completely.
Digitization is the new revolution in almost all industry areas.
The convergence of planning, purchasing, production and sales opens up new, unimagined scope for efficiency. In part, this automation even allows disruptive breaks with the traditional.
Only companies that are prepared for it have a future, but then a dazzling one!
AI has a key position in automation.
Self-learning and networked components allow close collaboration between humans and robots. This means that all development and production processes can be significantly accelerated. The number of faulty productions and thus of the necessary raw materials is also falling sharply.
Further application examples can be found in the fully automatic maintenance as well as the driverless cars.
