VAS COUNTY PILOT: I4.0 is advancing in Hungary supported by Am-LAB

PBN is eager to find the right answers to nowadays challenges like the lack of labour force, out-of-date manufacturing technologies and the general restructuring of the digital industries that happen right in front of us.

The team of the Hungarian quadruple-helix network established in the frame of URBAN INNO really believes that the answer for these problems to solve could be the Industry 4.0 programme. It possesses all the tools that could help the Vas County region to accommodate to the aforementioned changes and the implementation of I4.0 is already started by PBN and Am-LAB.

The following areas are already covered by the Science Centre (Am-LAB) and that is just the beginning:

  • Additive manufacturing related activities were the basics to support custom manufacturing, like:
    • 3D scanning,
    • 3D modelling,
    • 3D printing;
  • A HoloLens device is also available now to test it and possibly further improve its technology,
  • AMR technology (Autonomous Mobile Robot) involved too,
  • A robotic arm is also part of the devices that Am-LAB colleagues intend to further develop and for example to support employees with hand disability.

However, the team of the centre - which is rewarded with the ‘Digital Innovation HUB’ title - is not only interested in the development area, but they are gathering as much useful knowledge in the area as possible to redistribute it to local key players, interested citizens and to the pupil community.

Mentoring sessions are about to be starting for small and medium sized companies with high potential to grow and training sessions are permanently held for students in order to make them prepared to our rapidly changing digital world with its challenges. The main aim is that once when they will enter to the labour market they should not think that they are facing challenges, but they have all the opportunities supported with this knowledge to create something bigger!
