AUTOMATION AND PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY – Efficiency enhancement is a strong incentive for our globally organized industrial world. As early as 100 years ago, in the 1920s and 1930s, rationalization and efficiency enhancement fundamentally changed the working world, production sequences, communication, and mobility behaviour. The aims and technology fields which are the object of these change processes and innovations emerge in a political, social, and economic discourse. “Smart” controls make modern production sequences efficient; they have enormous energy saving potential when their operation is optimized, and therefore take pressure off the environment.

Nuremberg Tech aims to strengthen the competitiveness of the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region with future-orientated ideas and new developments in regional knowledge and technology transfer from the university to businesses.

Organisations working in this area

Innovative automation and production technology is being researched which will make industrial production more efficient, more cost-effective, and more productive.
