On November 27, 2017, the first Twin-Control seminar will take place at the Technische Universität Darmstadt. The aim of this event is the presentation of current project results for participants from both the academic and industrial environment.
The general topic of the seminar is Energy 4.0: Industry 4.0 applications to increase energy efficiency and energy flexibility. A specific advantage of digitization is the potential for increasing energy efficiency. On the one hand, growing data collections increase transparency, making it easier Read more
Before the summer, members of the Twin-Control consortium presented the project at different forums of sicentific-industrial interest.
FAG VarioSense bearings — a combination of a standard rolling bearing and a sensor cluster — provide several sensor signals for monitoring machines and processes in one compact unit. And they offer a combination of different measured values which can be adapted to specific applications in a standard envelope.

Manufacturing is getting smart. Companies are increasingly using sensors and wireless technologies to capture data at all stages of a product’s life. These range from material properties and the temperatures and vibrations of equipment to the logistics of supply chains and customer details. Truck engines beam back data on speed, fuel consumption and oil temperature to manufacturers and fleet operators. Optical scanners are used to spot defects in printed electronics circuits1.
