Laboratory for Factories of the Future
The Laboratory for Factories of the Future continues the work of the eponymous laboratory within the Novo mesto Development Centre. It covers critical enabling technologies for Industry 4.0: robotics, automation, machine vision, the IoT, advanced machining technologies and additive technologies.
It will operate a demonstration centre for smart factories, which it will take over from the Development Centre. It will be equipped with state-of-the-art equipment in almost all the technology areas mentioned above. It will be available for companies to test before they decide to invest, to train employees of companies that need such equipment and to inspire young people (children, schoolchildren, students) to enter STEM careers.
