Industry 4.0 has been on the strategic agenda since 2018. It took a large number of milestones until autonomous production in the grinding of the toothing became possible in the production of dental instruments made of tungsten carbide. Thanks to condition monitoring, prediction methods as well as detection of wear and anomalies, machines can run for longer periods without external intervention. As a result, production runs 24 hours a day, six days a week. Throughput times and quality rates improve noticeably. As a result, we can largely dispense with stressful night shifts in this area. And on Saturdays, the machines continue working while their human “colleagues” enjoy their weekend. For our digitization strategy and innovative strength, we have been awarded the “TOP 100 Innovator” by the scientific jury for the second time in a row.
