Digital value creation

Market and customer requirements are changing rapidly. The digital transformation helps to master the tasks ahead. The focus is on the digital networking of products, machines, people, and processes and thus on cross-system data availability in real time.

Bihler offers you intelligent automation solutions and smart products to provide you with the best possible support for all these requirements. Bihler combines the real world of stamping and forming technology with the digital world. With "Bihler Digital" and its digital services for the three areas of engineering, production and training/support, you simply develop faster, manufacture even more efficiently and save valuable resources.


Achieve greater transparency and efficiency right from the planning and creation of stamping and forming processes. Save costs and time in the realization of your high-quality components and benefit from smooth commissioning.

The Bihlerplanning WebApp is the ideal tool for planners and designers. The app offers you valuable support in component planning and quotation preparation as well as in the design of radial and linear tools. The app also contains a sample database with a wealth of Bihler knowledge and tool designs in STEP format.

The WebApp also serves as a helpful source of inspiration for new solutions based on the similarity principle. It gives you a quick and easy initial overview of the realization of stamped and formed parts made of strip and wire as well as subsequent parts (bending stages, tool). Additional information such as production speed, set-up time and processing time per batch is clearly visible.

The new bNX version contains numerous improvements and new developments. The main focus is on the kinematics module. Here, the engineering tools are now directly linked to the function plan. This increases user-friendliness and efficiency during project creation. A new checker checks the content of the function plan to avoid project errors and shorten development times. The new version will be available in spring 2024.

In addition, you can now also rent the bNX software for a period of 12 to 36 months at attractive prices. This allows you to use the state-of-the-art product for exactly the period that best suits your individual requirements. The rental price remains stable over the entire rental period, giving you planning security and predictability. You can also extend the rental period at any time in order to react flexibly to changes in the market.

Digital twins of all high-tech manufacturing solutions, such as the BIMERIC servo production and assembly system, are available as a virtual image of the entire manufacturing process. The Bihler experts then use these digital twins to commission the entire system virtually in advance. Virtual commissioning provides valuable insights throughout the entire life cycle.

This allows a wide variety of production processes to be run through and tested in full. Faults and sources of error quickly become visible and can be rectified as early as the design phase. All of this enables the optimal configuration of the machine, increases the quality of the software and ensures rapid initial commissioning and optimization of the production system.


Benefit from more production time and higher productivity of your Bihler machines. Identify potential problems at an early stage, act proactively and optimize your work processes. All with the aim of saving valuable time and resources.

With the "Bihler Digital App", you increase efficiency in your production. Thanks to the modularity of the digital application, you fully exploit optimization potential on your machine. The focus is on training your employees as well as analyses and adjustments to the plant. The application is immediately ready for operation in a plug & play process without any programming effort.

The "Dashboard" module gives you a quick overview of the status of your machines in real time. In the "Order management" module, you can complete the entire order management process at your desk and transfer it digitally to production. With the "Analysis" module, you can filter specific data from the machines, process it individually and create trend statistics. Tool change times and the VC 1 message history are now also integrated. And with the "Offline VC 1" module, you can program new tools while the machine is running and parameterize existing tools offline on an office computer.


Shorten the familiarization time of your employees through targeted preparation for the real production process. Increase work productivity and quality by maximizing employee understanding of the process and simplifying information procurement.

The latest development in the Bihler Digital App is “Animation”. The digital module allows the visualization and animation of complete production lines as well as individual assemblies or tools without additional software. The animations are perfect for training purposes. But you can also use them as a knowledge database.

The basis for each animation is the corresponding CAD data of your plant. These are animated according to the game engineering principle. Via a play button you then start the complete manufacturing process from strip feeding to the final product. In addition to particularly detailed views, you can also set points of interest in “Animation”. These are information fields that you store on an assembly or tool using a marker and contain useful information such as setting sheets or instructions.

This module of the Bihler Digital App gives you more flexibility and increases the learning success of your employees. The software is used to operate tool programs and control functions of the VC 1 control system in offline mode. Your benefits: Training courses can be held flexibly at fixed times, independently of production, meaning there is no disruption to ongoing work processes. The comfortable working environment at the PC workstation significantly reduces the training period.

The interactive documentation platform provides an effective and engaging way to access documentation, communicate information and facilitate learning. Your employees gain a quicker understanding through the visual presentation of information. By combining videos, animations, images and text, complex information is explained clearly, meaning that technical and/or practical applications relating to machines/accessories/process modules are conveyed to employees very quickly. All with the aim of making your employees work even more efficiently.
