Editorial

Dear Readers,

We aim to ensure that each of our innovations lowers your unit costs and increases your production efficiency. And we work hard to achieve this: our direct expenditure on R&D innovation projects exceeds € 100 million a year.

Our focus is on digitization. By this we mean developing smart products, digitally networked production systems (smart factory), and big data analysis of complex production data. Digitization offers you considerable efficiency gains in your production: productivity, quality, flexibility and system availability are enhanced through predictive maintenance, for example; new products are available earlier; investment and operating costs are reduced.

Find out more in the latest issue of DÜRR NEWS with its article on the smart control of our new painting robot, the film on our digital@DÜRR strategy, and other features.

Best wishes,
Ralf W. Dieter 
CEO of Dürr AG
