INDUSTRY 4.0 – LIVING THE FUTURE AT BRP-ROTAX

BRP-Rotax shapes the work of the future with innovative technology and digital processes.

DIGITALIZATION OF PRODUCTION

BRP-Rotax is already a pioneer of industrial production systems with digital controls and collaborative robotics. Equipped with specialized sensor technology and a safety system, they enable humans and machines to work seamlessly together. In the longer term the aim is to network CNC, quality control, human centered workplaces and collaborative robotics and thereafter integrate them into augmented/virtual reality systems.

 

Since 2019 BRP-Rotax has also been developing a flexible and highly intelligent production process for configurable premium powertrain systems in order to enable Batch Size 1 production, i.e. special and one-off production runs, at the same cost as mass production. This is the realization of Industry 4.0 and digitalization.

THE FUTURE OF WORK: STAFF ARE IN POLE POSITION

Staff and their health, safety and other needs continue to be the top priority with regards to digitalization.  Harald Okruch, Director of IS Business Solutions, explains: “The focus of all technological development must be on people; people must have enough time to adapt to developments and to play an active role in ensuring that they are sustainable.”
