An integrated learning system for
Industry 4.0


Project Workstation I4.0

Step-by-step towards the factory of the future
Based on our classic training materials for mechatronics, control technology and automation technology, the universal learning platform MPS® Pallet Transfer System can be expanded step-by-step in hands-on projects to form a full-fledged Industry 4.0 component with the appropriate practical topics.

The modular project workstation I4.0 forms a solid basis for further training up to the level of Smart Factory and Industry 4.0. In educational and functional terms, the project workstation I4.0 fits perfectly into the CP Lab and CP Factory learning environments.

Available learning stages

Additional equipment provides the user with further topics and projects:

  • Stage 1: Fundamentals of Control Technology
  • Stage 2: Station operation: Module expanded with pallet transfer system with stopper
  • Stage 3: Expanding the classic training topics: Intelligent CPS Gate
  • Stage 4: Introduction to the Smart Factory

CP Lab

Seamless, modular and expandable

In the CP Lab, a number of project workstations I4.0 are used to create a realistic industrial pallet circulating system.

Starting with the project workstation I4.0 and continuing via the CP Lab through to the comprehensive CP Factory – the modules and pallets can be used at all stages. The CP Lab can be connected to the CP Factory via the mobile robot Robotino® and the deflector module.

All the topics of the project workstation I4.0, plus:

  • Material flow
  • Overall process
  • System networking
  • Information flow in complex systems
  • Process planning
  • Planning assembly and dismantling
  • Teamwork
  • Data processing systems (manufacturing execution systems – MES)

Industry 4.0 Learning Solutions

CP Factory training situation
Cyber-Physical Factory

The CP Factory research and learning platform provides higher education institutions and companies with access to the technology and applications of Industry 4.0. The platform demonstrates the production of tomorrow in a locally controlled, intelligent network.

Training and Consulting

To establish Industry 4.0 in a company, the training and qualifications of its skilled workers must be adapted to meet the new requirements of this interdisciplinary approach. For example, service technicians not only need practical mechatronics experience but also knowledge of IT infrastructures so that they can work at a high level to quickly rectify machine standstills.
