"Erlebniswelt Werkzeugbau"
The ?Erlebniswelt Werkzeugbau? of the WBA is an environment in which different systems for solving specific problems are developed and exhibited. Due to the rising demands of customers with regard to the geometry of parts to be manufactured by the tool and also the procedural demands for shorter delivery periods, high quality standards and a transparent cost analysis, a high process mastery and continuous transparency along the entire order fulfillment process is required.

As there is no holistic solution for the various challenges at different points in the production process, the WBA is focused on developing and testing specific solutions as demonstrators. In particular, the connection of these systems is of key importance since the creation of isolated industry 4.0-solutions opposes the goal of increasing efficiency. Experiencing what is possible and then making the choice best for you ? This is the motto of the ?Erlebniswelt Werkzeugbau? at the WBA.
