Smart Industry

Smart Industry, also called Industry 4.0, focuses on the application of new production technologies and ICT in business processes. The design, manufacturing and distribution of products in the industry is continuously changing. Smart Industry anticipates these changes. 247TailorSteel is an initiator/founder of the ‘Smart Bending Factory’.

Smart Bending Factory

The field lab ‘Smart Bending Factory’ strives to bring together non-competing Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in the metal processing and machining sector in a network environment and to collaborate with each other in an integrated manner. Non-strategic machining processes are joined in a physical factory. The key results: 

  • reducing the ‘total cost of ownership’ in the entire chain by at least 20%;
  • accelerating the ‘time to market’ by a factor of 5, delivery of weeks to days.
