The sheet metal processing industry has changed significantly in recent years, driven by Industry 4.0. In the renowned “Tech For Good” magazine, Bystronic Chief Technology Officer Christoph Rüttimann laid out what this means and why Bystronic is already focusing on Industry 5.0.
Our company's success no longer rests on individual machines, but on smart solutions working together to create customized production lines. These can be operated both fully and semi-autonomously; their intuitive programming and operation allow even inexperienced users to rapidly become experts.
Industry 5.0 is based on a vision that looks beyond efficiency and productivity, and reinforces the role and contribution of industry in society. It places the well-being of the worker at the center of the production process and uses new technologies to facilitate a prosperity that reaches beyond jobs and growth while respecting and taking into account our planet's limited resources.
As CTO of Bystronic, Christoph Rüttimann, considers one of his main responsibilities to be ensuring that Bystronic successfully takes this step by embedding sustainability in all processes and creating products and solutions geared toward the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals. For Bystronic, this means ensuring sustainability is at the core of all Bystronic products.
