Transport Minister Winfried Hermann visits PWO
As CEO Dr. Volker Simon explains: "Based on our extensive expertise in how steel behaves at the limits of forming, we have developed production processes that enable us to economically manufacture ever-lighter products. We allow material to flow exactly where it is needed and reduce it elsewhere. And we manufacture innovative hybrid parts that combine especially lightweight, high-strength steel and aluminum."
PWO is squarely focused on the digitization of its manufacturing processes so that it is able to create a digital shadow of the entire production step-by-step, allowing it to collect a wealth of data along the entire production process. PWO's evaluation with modern algorithms makes it possible to increase production efficiency and reduce material consumption while, at the same time, reducing energy requirements, emissions, wastewater and waste per unit produced.
Winfried Hermann was impressed: "We need more efficient vehicles for climate protection. In terms of production, the automotive industry can become even more environmentally friendly with the help of digitization and through the conscious use of resources. Using PWO as an example, it is easy to see how the requirements for climate-friendly production and future-oriented jobs can be reconciled."
