Enable smart products by using the digital twin

The future of the products is smart and the digital twin is the central element on the way there. As a virtual image of production, services or processes, it seamlessly links all product-related disciplines. Real data provides the basis for more efficiency, faster development, less susceptibility to errors and new business models. With our many years of expertise in PLM and the right products and solutions, we support companies in all industries in making sustainable use of the potential of digital value creation.


Digital twins are at the heart of digital transformation. Expectations are accordingly high.
In the video, IoT expert Stefan Gregorzik explains how digital twins help to initiate new business processes and make existing processes more digitally efficient.

CONTACTs digital twin in practice

The digital twin in industrial use

Experience how industrial companies are already successfully using CONTACT's digital twin today. The example of a beverage bottling plant in the field and its digital twin shows the full potential of the solution in interaction with CONTACT Elements for IoT: from initiating different maintenance operations or engineering change processes based on evaluated real-time data to the resilient mapping of business processes.

Condition Monitoring – Monitoring machines and plants in real time

With the digital twin from CONTACT, you always have an overview of your products, machines and plants. Clearly arranged, real-time data provides you with the greatest possible transparency regarding properties, performance and operating behavior. Determine automatic workflows on the basis of parameters that are easy to create, such as the triggering of maintenance operations when defined limit values are exceeded. The direct comparison of the system configuration mirrored in the digital twin with the data of the spare parts inventory ensures simpler and faster reconciliation for repairs. 

Predictive Maintenance – Predictively reduce costs

Failures cost time and money. With the digital twin from CONTACT, you can detect faults in advance, organize maintenance and repair more efficiently and reduce downtimes. A dashboard visualizes the sensor data of your machines and plants in the digital twin and makes anomalies immediately visible. Benefit from the advantages of predictive maintenance for your existing plants and machines as well. Together with the Fraunhofer IPK, we have retrofitted a machine tool into a digitally networked test stand for drive axles.
