Digitalisation and training for manufacturing companies
Consulting, training and implementation services
Everything for your digital future
We support digitalisation in your production sites from the initial question over knowledge transfer to solution realisation.
Who we are
Founded in 2016 from the Institut für Textiltechnik der RWTH Aachen University, we have adapted our portfolio to the needs of different industries. With an innovative team from the fields of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, business administration and textile technology, we are a competent partner for your problem.
What drives us
Our goal is to strengthen digitalisation in manufacturing companies and thus increase efficiency and data transparency. In addition to digital transformation, we support the textile industry in particular with innovation consulting and training programmes in order to remain competitive in the future.
Monitoring production processes, processing machine data and intelligent assistance systems - we accompany your digital transformation so that your company can face the challenges of the digital future. Using a real model factory 4.0, the Digital Capability Center in Aachen, we bring digital solutions to life for you.
Digitalisation for production
Many companies are facing a major challenge: to use Industrie 4.0 solutions sensibly. To prepare companies for the digital future, we opened the Digital Capability Center (DCC) in Aachen in 2017. In our Model Factory 4.0, we develop digital solutions for production and provide expertise for implementation in your own company. We offer tailored formats for managers and technicians from various industries. In our workshops and seminars, we impart basic knowledge on the topic of Industry 4.0, condition monitoring, sensor technology and automation, advise on decision-making and accompany implementation projects. We accompany your digital transformation from the first workshop to the implementation project.
Digitalisation challenges many companies.
We have prepared a comprehensive programme for you that will make the digital transformation easier.
The Digital Capability Center in Aachen is a model factory for digitalisation in production
Digital Capability Center Aachen
The Digital Capability Center (DCC) Aachen is the world's first model factory 4.0 with a textile production as a demonstration example. The DCC Aachen is a central location for the development of digital capabilities in a real demonstration and learning environment as well as a test base for piloting and scaling new digital solutions. Using real industrial machines, we demonstrate the operational process of a digital transformation.
Training courses along the textile value chain
Competent and skilled employees are indispensable to remain competitive in the textile industry. With our training courses on the basics of textile technology, innovation consultancy and seminars tailored to your individual needs, we respond to the shortage of skilled workers in the industry. Our training programmes are supervised by highly qualified textile engineers and scientists from the Institute of Textile Technology at RWTH Aachen University. Thus, you benefit from scientific research on the state of the art, but also gain insights into future trends and current research topics.
Professional education along the textile value chain
With us you will find further training - tailored to your needs. Choose between our customised seminars, open basic training courses and personal innovation consultancy.
Basic training course
Our basic training courses cover the basics of textile technology as well as current research topics. The training courses take place three times a year and are supervised by ITA scientists who deal with the contents in their daily research work. The contents of the training courses are constantly updated and carried out according to the latest didactic methods. In this way, we guarantee effective first-hand training. We currently offer the topics " Basics of Textile Technology" and "Sustainability in Textile Technology".
Basic training course
The development of innovative products and services often presents companies with major challenges. This is often due to the perceived discrepancy between creative freedom on the one hand and efficient process organisation on the other. Innovation requires breaking out of the daily routine. This balance is best mastered through targeted, moderated workshops with external experts. With our innovation workshops, we offer support for acute issues in your company's innovation environment.
