Become a member and benefit from our demonstration factory!

As a member of Center Smart Services you are part of the development and production environment of the Cluster Smart Logistics. In addition to access to innovation labs, the theme park, the convention center and partner offices, this also means access to the demonstration factory (DFA).
Here you have the opportunity to present your show case in the production environment of the future and become part of the digitally networked production environment of tomorrow. Many members also use the DFA for sales purposes to show potential customers their products under realistic conditions. Since this is part of our everyday life and every year several 10.000 international trade visitors are guided through the DFA. Your Show Case in our demonstration factory is also a very good sales and marketing tool.
In addition, the DFA offers the ideal opportunity to try out technologies such as 5G or WI-FI 6 and to test their impact on existing and new production environments.
Visit DFA on site or digitally: With a 3-D scan of the hall you can virtually discover the possibilities of DFA and get to know individual production stations: video clips and interactive diagrams let you dive into theme worlds such as Smart Tracking and Smart Assembly in production or the Internet of Production. For faster, more cost-efficient and smoother production processes.
