For mechanical engineering companies in the StädteRegion Aachen (Aachen, Alsdorf, Baesweiler, Eschweiler, Herzogenrath, Monschau, Simmerath, Stolberg, Roetgen, Würselen), together with our project partner 3WIN Maschinenbau GmbH, we developed the "MACH 4.0 - Digital Workshop for SMEs", a completely new training offer for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with a focus on Industry 4.0 / digitalisation.
As part of this offer, skilled workers in the fields of assembly, manufacturing and administration were quickly and efficiently familiarised with the latest digital developments in the field of Industrie 4.0. In each of these areas, the participants learned about one or more digital support measures for process optimisation and long-term knowledge retention.
The special feature of this Digital Workshop offer was that the training took place in a real production environment at 3WIN Maschinenbau GmbH. Each worker was given the opportunity to experience Industry 4.0 up close and "touch" it. In addition, the digitalisation measures could be adapted to the implementation possibilities of SMEs.
The training was completed with a certificate from the Aachen Chamber of Industry and Commerce and the Aachen Chamber of Crafts.
Through the specialist knowledge acquired, which the employees were then able to take back to their companies, they received direct added value, further advancing digitisation in SMEs as a whole.
As part of the pilot, a total of 10 mechanical engineering companies in the StädteRegion Aachen were able to participate free of charge.
The pilot project was carried out by AGIT and 3WIN Maschinenbau GmbH on behalf of StädteRegion Aachen and the city of Aachen.
