MARKET4.0 H2020 project announces the online launch of the MARKET4.0 marketplace for manufacturing equipment and services. It is an open multi-sided digital platform for enabling production equipment and service providers to connect and work together with manufacturing companies.
MARKET4.0 offers advanced capabilities on top of a user-centric web portal to support transactions and decision-making processes during the procurement of complex products such as production equipment and services. The International Data Space (IDS) standard has been implemented and deployed for trusted data sharing. Simulation technologies such as augmented reality have been used for the test-before-invest approach. Equipment-specific-purpose apps are provided through the MARKET4.0 Appstore for the configuration of products and services.
In the MARKET4.0 marketplace there are already a number of companies and technology providers in three (3) production equipment and services categories:
- Metal Processing equipment (e.g. cutting, bending, machining)
- Plastics and composites processing (e.g. injection molding)
- High-tech production equipment (e.g. equipment for electronics manufacturing).
Production equipment suppliers, manufacturing technology providers, and manufacturing companies can register to the marketplace, test its functionalities, and browse the products listed.
MARKET4.0 project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no° 822064.
