Industry 4.0 Demonstration and Innovation Center

Smart machines, work pieces, and processes – this is what the future of German production will be like. The project
“Industry 4.0” launched by the German Federal Government is intended to prepare industry accordingly. China tries
to increasingly digitalize its industry under the strategy “Made in China 2025” in line with the German model. To
prepare companies producing in the Peoples Republic of China for the country specific requirements, the KIT China
Branchopened an Industry 4.0 Demonstration and Innovation Center on November25th 2015 in Suzhou.

It’s the first center of this kind to combine theory and practice. The center accommodates a smart assembly line for
hydraulic valves, based on technology of Bosch and Bosch Rexroth. The assembly line can be configured variably
while the plant is equipped with various Industry 4.0 applications. By means of a wirelessly controlled smart system,
around 90 different valve types can be produced without exchanging tools. Companies can manufacture smaller
numbers of pieces at the costs of large-series production. The work piece carriers are provided with electronic data
storage systems containing information on the type of valve to be manufactured by the stations and the materials
and working steps needed. Via radio, the carriers transmit these data to the corresponding machines that read them
and display information about materials and workflows on a screen in real time for the responsible staff.

The Industry 4.0 Demonstration and Innovation Center serves as a platform to conduct high-level trainings and facilitate
joint research and innovation programs for Sino -German enterprises. Several professional training programs with
regard to Production Management, Quality Management and Lean Logistics enabled by Industry 4.0 can be upheld in
our unique training facilities. Moreover, the unique facilities and Industry 4.0 solutions are also part of our consulting
services to upgrade your Production System to a Cyber-Physical Production with certain tangible benefits.
