在NPE2015等最近的演出中， 阿堡 已经证明了其对国际的诠释“Industry 4.0”通过网络化生产单元和监控计算机创建集成工厂的项目（请参阅 NPE2015年3月预览). 阿堡 (whose U.S. office just moved to Rocky Hill, Conn.) has applied 工业4.0 principles to production of individualized products in series production—also called “mass customization.”
阿堡’s latest and most elaborate demo of this approach was at the April Hanover Fair in Germany. The product was a square rocker-type light switch. At a PC station, visitors chose a personal symbol and name combination, which were added to the individual product order (photo). These data were stored on an RFID chip card, which was inserted into the controller on an 阿堡 injection machine. The part was molded and an individual data-matrix (DM or QR) code was applied by laser.
零件数据通过云链接到生产机器。因此，应用于零件的DM / QR代码将其转变为信息载体，从而自动控制其在整个过程链中的进度。 （此不可磨灭的代码用于与安全性相关的汽车安全部件，例如安全气囊，以及在医疗部件中，例如为个体患者量身定制的假肢。）
Next, an 阿堡 Freeformer 3D printer personalized the light switch by applying droplets of plastic onto the surface to produce the preselected symbol and name combination. Then came camera inspection for QC and individual packaging of the part. With the QR code printed on the package, visitors could use a smartphone to retrieve all the process data for their part on an individual web page.
