The beauty of networking

Connected production live and hands-on experience in Chicago: here, TRUMPF opened a showroom in September and created a hands-on experience of connected production.

When a working factory is set up in a showroom, manufacturing processes come alive. Once again, TRUMPF has gone to extraordinary lengths not only by creating a hands-on experience of connected production but also by framing it in a futuristic vision that offers revolutionary perspectives. A control room equipped with numerous monitors, many of them transparent, looks directly out over the shop floor and all the machinery. And an elevated walkway spanning the entire production hall provides a bird’s-eye view of the digitally connected facility. TRUMPF’s smart factory in Chicago shows the modern face of sheet metalworking using the latest tools. Unlike other demonstration centers which focus on individual products, here visitors can see the fully orchestrated interaction between elements in the production system. The Chicago demo center enables customers to visualize their entire value chain and even simulate their own job schedules.

Chicago was consciously chosen as the location for the Smart Factory. The directly adjacent states contain around 40 percent of the country’s entire sheet metal working industry.
