About us

DIGItal MANufacturing Technologies for Zero-defect Industry 4.0 Production is a world excellent research training to 15 ESRs

During the last 5-6 years, the term Industry 4.0 made its appearance and spread across industries worldwide. “Industrie 4.0” is the name formally adopted by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research to identify a strategy aimed at enabling industry to a transition towards future ways of production.

Industry 4.0 enables several synergies among different elements of current production and the new digital technologies. Those synergies can be translated into initiatives and levers with potential to result in considerable improvements in manufacturing processes.

Manufacturing is deeply embedded in the economy and the society, and this is particularly true in Europe. However, even though European manufacturing industry is among the worldwide technology leaders, the increasing pressure of market demands and of global competition imply the need of expansion of Europe’s manufacturing technologies and capabilities.

The key-enabling technologies that will allow to achieve high quality products and significantly reduce the time to market and costs in order to succeed in this global market place are those digital technologies that companies need to embrace and integrate in their organization in order to execute the necessary transformation from their present state into the Industry 4.0 paradigm.

The 3 main technological cornerstones of DIGIMAN4.0 are:

  1. Precision manufacturing processes development
  2. Digital manufacturing technologies and their integration into process chains
  3. Industry 4.0 pilot production for zero-defect manufacturing
