How to produce flexibly through new technologies?

The new technologies, which follow each other quickly, provide opportunities for companies to respond quickly to a rapidly changing market demand. Companies that organise their production in a very flexible and agile manner can produce 'personalised' products at acceptable costs. An example of such a new technology is collaborative robotics where the strengths of the technology (repetition and accuracy) are combined with the strengths of the employee (flexibility and creativity). This prevents physical or mental strain. We are working on this in COTEMACO

These Industry 4.0 technologies offer great opportunities for existing and new companies.
