CP Lab – Pallet Transfer System

CP Lab – Pallet Transfer System


The Cyber-Physical Lab is a fully-fledged Industry 4.0-learning system in a compact size to convey practical knowledge of the digitalized industrial production. Its modular and flexible design allows hands-on projects in different learning scenarios. The acquired knowledge can be step-by-step thematically expanded to cover further material relevant to Industry 4.0.
