An initiative of the Fraunhofer IOSB-INA and the OWL University.


Today´s research designs tomorrow´s products and production.

Two interdisciplinary research institutes influence the SmartFactoryOWL with their research activities. In close collaboration with local industry and funded by government research in interdisciplinary projects for adaptability (plug-and-produce), big data, ressource efficiency and user-friendly human machine interaction can be performed. International activities in EU projects highlight the relevance of the technologies developed in Lemgo in international context.

We influence guidelines and are competent partners with regard to industry 4.0. Core processes of product development and production, like additive and machining manufacturing as well as assembly are implemented and connected with each other.
