Factory automation and Industry 4.0

Factory automation and Industry 4.0

Take advantage of our expertise in factory automation, from the fundamentals of technology to complete industrial automation.

Do you want to convey expertise in the fields of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, mechatronics, IT, sensors and microsystems? Our learning systems offer practical, interdisciplinary knowledge in the dynamic fields of science and technology. Using state-of-the-art technologies, you will be able to teach the interdisciplinary topics of design, planning and systems automation in a very practical way.

Practical learning systems for automation technology

Production processes are being increasingly automated. Plants, processes, manufacturing and production systems, as well as measuring and control instruments and systems, have to be planned, produced and optimised. All this requires in-depth, practical expertise.

We use the latest industrial components in our modular learning systems, so that you can teach the core competencies for mechatronics and automation technologies in a project-based and practical way. For the demanding manufacturing industry.

Training solutions for the following topics:

Control technology

Learning systems for control technology

Controllers are a central element in automation technology along with actuators and sensors. Our control concept for teaching PLC programming and relay circuits in the pneumatics or hydraulics laboratory enables you to pass on expertise in open- and closed-loop control, monitoring, (process) data collection, communication and diagnostics. A simple and reliable system that enables students to become familiar with control technology processes and technologies.

Automation technology with MPS®

Mechatronic learning system MPS

With our classic mechatronics and electronics training you can rely on a proven concept. You can use MPS®– the ‘sports equipment’ of the mechatronics world championships – to teach future skilled workers exactly what characterises automated production: the integration of mechanics, electrical engineering and information technology into mechatronics and the fundamentals of automation technology.
