Pioneer for Industry 4.0

As a driver of innovation in mechatronic drive technology, WITTENSTEIN is a pioneer for Industry 4.0. Our commitment centers on production optimization and product development.

We test these concepts at our Urban Production site in Fellbach. Here, we incorporate innovative information and Internet technologies into traditional production structures. Our vision of the smart factory keeps people at the heart of production. Employees will receive qualified support in their work from intelligent machines, global networks and virtual production technologies.
