Modular and flexible training system

The core of the system is its modularity which enables great flexibility by combining modules in different configurations for training in a variety of applications. The use of standard interfaces for each application module allows the modules to be interchanged in just a few minutes.



The learning platform presents various stations of a real production plant as an emulation that integrates all relevant and newest technologies from the fields of mechatronics and automation. Our training offer for the CP Factory includes comprehensive facilities for the following areas:

  • Assembly line
  • Logistics
  • Production
  • Production planning and control/MES (Manufacturing Execution System)
  • Lean production
  • Quality assurance
