DAMRC is building an Industry 4.0 factory for SMEs and fills it with old machines

Danish Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (DAMRC) hosted a MADE Open Lab about processing and new production processes.

Besides being a showroom of new and advanced machines for processing, the centre is currently also establishing an Industry 4.0 factory with a lot of old machines. And there is actually a good reason behind that.

"We want to make Industry 4.0 relevant to all the Danish SMEs. What does Industry 4.0 mean for a small company like Lem Beslagfabrik? That's why we put old machines in. The old and used machines are dominant in the industry, and they still represent a very great value for the companies," DAMRC's director Klaus Bonde Ørskov explained.

Since the establishment of DAMRC in 2010, it has served as a national knowledge center for machining and processing technology such as drilling and milling. The Open Lab focused on how new technology and digitalization can improve processing in Danish manufacturing companies.
