fischertechnik is introducing its one-of-a-kind Training Factory Industry 4.0 at the Hannover trade fair. The Training Factory’s size allows it to fit on a desk. The miniature factory consists of various processes that can be found in a real assembly, such as a kiln, a sorting line with colour detection and a high bay warehouse. The dashboard connected via cloud visualises various process steps from the perspective of the customer, supplier or head of production. The factory simulation therefore displays all the processes of an online order in a digital and networked manner – from placing the order online all the way to dispatch.
They can span several kilometres and have since gone viral on many social media platforms: chain reactions. The fischertechnik Funny Machines construction kit (69.95 Euro, available from June 2019) lays the first building block on the road to the next world record. The entertaining domino effect starts with a small fischertechnik vehicle. An amusing series of events is triggered once the vehicle hits the chicane. The fun can start all over again as soon as the ball is catapulted into the goal at the end.
Alpacas are mostly known for their warm wool, which is among the most valuable fabrics in the world alongside silk and cashmere. fischerTiP now offers the opportunity to make your own cuddly trend animal from the Andes with the fischerTiP Alpaca themed bucket (9.95 Euro, available from March 2019). The popular creative material can be made into brightly coloured toy alpacas covered in a folklore blanket. The toys are also highly sustainable: the “Made in Germany” creative material is made of potato starch and food colouring.
fischertechnik’s two new construction kits JUNIOR Easy Starter S (27.95 Euro) and JUNIOR Easy Starter L (44.95 Euro, both available from June 2019) are aimed at children aged three and above. The construction kits give children an initial introduction to construction through the high-quality “Made in Germany” building blocks. The JUNIOR Easy Starter Sets can be combined with all other fischertechnik components. The “Made in Germany” toy manufacturer therefore conveys motor skills, concentration ability and a basic technical understanding to young children.
fischertechnik’s models are renowned for their stability. Large models also stand their ground due to fischertechnik’s high-quality parts. The new ADVANCED Universal 4 construction kit (69.95 Euro, available from March 2019) opens up a whole new world of opportunities to young constructing engineers: 40 different models can be built with the 490 parts, such as construction site vehicles, spaceships or fairground rides for the next funfair. The universal construction kit by the “Made in Germany” toy manufacturer provides the perfect introduction to the world of fischertechnik as well as technical construction.
