INNOVATIVE PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY FOR TRAINING FACTORY
Industry 4.0 and digitisation for the Wilhelm-Maybach Schule technical college
The high-speed diverter is pivotal. ACOPOStrak is the only advanced, flexible transport system with a high-speed diverter. It enables products to pass from one track circuit to another at full production speed. This opens up entirely new possibilities to make production more flexible. The versatile ACOPOStrak transport system offers complete freedom: arrange track segments to perfectly match your needs. All types of open and closed track circuits can be laid out on a grid.
The shuttles are held in place by permanent magnets and so can be added and removed quickly and easily. With a pit lane in the track layout, changeover and service can be performed highly efficiently with zero downtime. With a diverter, the product flow can be divided, pass through multiple processing stations and then merge further down the line. Cycle times are reduced and productivity increases.
“With the support of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Economics, Labor and Housing, the Wilhelm Maybach School in Heilbronn was able to purchase the ACOPOStrak flexible transport system from the Austrian automation company B&R as a teaching system. The system was built and developed by B&R and Provitec from Neuenstadt am Kocher. Now, student technicians are to further develop the system’s software in the form of technician work.
A great project for our learning factory on the topic of digitalization and Industry 4.0. We are very proud of the convincing functionalities.“

GUEST TEACHER GIVES INFO ON THE DUAL SCHOOL SYSTEM
CEO Robert Endress provides training in China
Out of the blue, an invitation suddenly arrived to share information about the German dual school system with interested parties in China.
The Chinese participants wanted to learn about the German dual system for vocational training and how the system could be applied in their context. Other learning objectives included obtaining teaching ideas and finding out about German vocational training methods. They looked at mastery of PLC control technology, MPS technology, bus technology and other vocational skills in the field of mechatronics.
A certificate was provided at the end.

PRODAISI® AND THE RUBIK’S CUBE
Appearing jointly with iTAC Software AG for the first time.
PROVITEC GmbH has been working with iTAC Software AG since 2016. In 2018 we decided to exhibit together. Our Rubik’s Cube demo was a small side attraction. Using our PRODAISI® control software a completely mixed-up Rubik’s Cube was solved completely correctly in just a short time. This impressed many visitors to the stand.
A long article about our appearance at the trade show was published in Wirtschaftsstimme under the headline: PROVITEC presents innovative solutions for Industry 4.0 at Euroguss 2018.
