Main organisation:Flanders Make
Organisation profile:

We support businesses in their digital transformation to become ‘factories for the future’. To satisfy increasing demand for quality, personalised products at the cost price of mass production, and taking into account high wage costs as well as the ageing population in Western Europe, we’re focused on getting smart machines and people to work together. To achieve this, we perform research into flexible assembly units that can cope with multiple product variations.

People continue to play a key role in the modern production environment, but are supported by robots for specific tasks. This interaction is a must for any factory that wants to survive tomorrow and ensure the work continues to be manageable.
