Experimental and Digital Factory (EDF)

The Experimental and Digital Factory (EDF) at Chemnitz University of Technology is a cyber physical model and learning factory close to industry practice that can be used for research, development and qualification. The main function of the EDF is to research, test and demonstrate innovative concepts and technologies in the context of digitalization, networking, Industry 4.0 & 5.0, adaptability, energy and resource efficiency in an industry-related factory and manufacturing environment.

In particular, the EDF focuses on the cycle between factory planning and operation, the connection of the real with the digital world and the horizontal and vertical interconnection of business processes. The EDF thus essentially consists of two areas: Experimental Center and Digital Center.
