Industry 4.0 Training with Support from wenglor

As a leader in the field of sensor technology, wenglor depends on well-trained young talent. Within this context, wenglor invests a great deal of energy in collaboration with educational institutions. Together with Tettnang Electronics School, it has now been possible to implement a project whose influence is reaching well beyond the boundaries of the Lake Constance region. “iLernfabrik 4.0” is an Industry 4.0 system which imparts practical knowledge in the fields of automation, digitalization and the Internet of Things to students – with smart sensor technology from wenglor.

The goal of the iLernfabrik at Tettnang Electronics School is to make Industry 4.0 tangible for the students. It consists of a total of six modules which constitute a self-contained process including robots, as well as a conveyance, control, detection and storage system. And precisely this is the focus of the project: not the actual product, but rather the manufacturing processes are at the center of attention. Content and applicable requirements are presented to the students in this way, who are also made aware of the opportunities provided by Industry 4.0. A teaching concept entirely in the spirit of Rafael Baur, managing director of wenglor sensoric GmbH: “At wenglor, we’re convinced that the fundamentals of the new Industry 4.0 technologies have to be taught already during the apprenticeship. Only in this way will we be able to ideally prepare young talent for the challenges they’ll face throughout their careers.” The following video concerning the iLernfabrik offers insights into exactly which processes are replicated by the system, and which tasks are taken on by smart sensors from wenglor.
