At the JURA Campus, a team of approximately 50 employees develop new machines and continuously improve their quality. In keeping with the principles of Industry 4.0, functions and data relating to the machines can be accessed in real time, 24 hours a day, by any section involved – whether on site or from a mobile device.
Digitisation and automation allow the development teams to dedicate themselves fully to their core activities, while the new centre actively promotes dialogue and expertise-sharing among individual development groups.
Climate rooms simulate different conditions
The JURA Campus takes more than just a quantitative approach, however, because it also incorporates climate conditions. Climate rooms allow the team to simulate a wide range of operating conditions. JURA is, after all, represented in 50 countries around the world. "The fully automated endurance testing facility allows us to test our products with two different water qualities, two different types of bean and four different voltages," explains Probst. Cutting-edge sensors deliver vast quantities of data that will then be evaluated by intelligent software to improve even the tiniest of details.
