is a new research and experimental core facility serving for testing of innovative solutions and for optimization processes developed for smart factories.

Testbed – building and maintaining a flexible production facility – also serves to:

  • Promote the concept of Industry 4.0 among companies and public, including educational activities
  • Open the equipment to different user groups (students, researchers, representatives of SMEs, …)
  • Inspire researchers and companies to adopt the ideas of Industry 4.0
  • Demonstrate the product lifecycle from the first ideas over production to the product’s active life


Testbed facility enables the interested people for automated and digital production testing new solutions for smart factories according to the principles of Industry 4.0. They can check the compatibility, functionality and effectivity, they can simulate and optimize production and relevant business processes.
