NextFactory is to provide a radically new way of producing micro-systems - disruptive compared to today’s globalised, time- and resource-intensive production chains.
In a one-stop-shop approach, Next Factory shall enable producers of micro-mechatronic systems to manufacture their products completely on one machine - set up and programmed for their specific needs within one day even in lotsizes down to 1.
NextFactory aims at providing an all-in-one solution: a highly generic and flexible process chain and system architecture, integrating the manufacturing tools, components, materials and softwarerequired for the entire production cycle for all kinds of micro-systems.
The Next Factory Solution provides more than technology: it is a flexible, customer-driven service model which shall empower micro-system manufacturers to feed their product CAD models directly into future NextFactory machines and to manufacture it in a fully automated process. NextFactory moves the design into the centre of the process: Micro-system designers obtain outmost control over the production process but do not need to own the manufacturing device for this.
