First Twin-Control seminar at TU Darmstadt

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 to identify energy wastes. On the other hand, the controllability of machines and systems is growing, with which they can be operated in an more efficient way. The seminar presents current research activities as well as industrial applications.


  • Points of contact for energy efficiency / flexibility and Industry 4.0
  • Twin-Control: The machine tool as a cyber-physical system
  • Demonstration of Twin-Control in the ETA factory
  • Companies present examples from practice:
  • Energy 4.0 applications in mechanical manufacturing
  • Guided tour of the ETA factory
