Two new digitally-controlled drilling units were built and put into operation at a cost of about EUR 4.5 million. As a result, the bogie frames are 30 percent faster than in the past. About 980 people are employed at the Graz facility, where some 50 apprentices are being trained. More than 1,640 bogies have been manufactured in Graz since the beginning of the year. These railway bogies from the Graz plant are used for numerous Siemens railway vehicles i.e. trams, subways and other railway vehicles. Annual production capacity totals approx. 2,500 bogies.

This step is embedded in the “Machining Concept 2020" designed to optimize production flows in the factory, further increase productivity and expand the international competitiveness of the site.

How Austria Shapes Its Future with AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) is certainly the most powerful new technology available today. This is probably the reason why the underlying discussion is frequently driven by fear. Hollywood has also contributed to this. Half-human, half-machine mutants resembling Frankenstein and Terminator are the spectres unleased by AI. However, as is often the case, Hollywood’s fantasy has little to do with reality.
