Leveraging the Digital Twin at Maier Machines

Presented by Michael Maier

Emerging technologies, such as the digital twin, are time and cost-saving applications not exclusively for Forbes 500 companies but can also be an economically viable investment for small and medium enterprises. At Maier Werkzeugmaschinen, the digital twin is already a business reality and has made commissioning machine tools significantly faster, more reliable and convenient.

In this interview, Michael shares his experiences from his transformation journey and explains how he successfully implemented the digital twin, including:

  • Leveraging the digital transformation to increase competitiveness 
  • The business case behind the digitalization and the digital twin
  • Experiences with the digital twin: from daily operation to customer relations
