Take a Seat with Industry 4.0

IKV

The bicycle seat, which visitors can adapt to their individual needs, is produced in a fully automated manufacturing cell (© IKV)

Regarding the subject of Industry 4.0, the Institute for Plastic Processing (IKV) in Aachen, Germany, will show how functionally integrated lightweight components can be produced by integrating Cyber Physical Production Systems (CPPS). A bicycle seat serves for demonstration, which is produced in a fully automatic manufacturing cell. To meet the mechanical demands, a tape and laminate are back molded with plastic. In this way, six different and customized versions (fiber reinforcement, weight, and density) can be produced. With the help of ergonomic interaction, visitors can select an individually configured version.
