Focus on Industry 4.0

Due to the positive reception in the previous year, and the increasing challenges faced by industrial production, Hall 3A is once again the showcase for the Industry 4.0 area. 

Dr. Peter Adolphs, CEO, Pepperl+Fuchs explains that the use cases of the Industry 4.0 area are selected in such a way that you can identify small steps which enable you to develop on an evolutionary basis in the direction of Industry 4.0. This is of great benefit to machine builders.

The Industry 4.0 area offers visitors a wide range of opportunities for obtaining information focusing on digitalisation and intelligent networking of production.

The "Automation meets IT" joint stand and forum presents data-based business models as well as IT-based solutions from the world of automation en-route to the digital production of the future. The "MES goes Automation" joint stand shows how order processing and production processes can be optimised through the use of MES. For the first time, this special presentation has been enhanced by the presence of companies from the field of cyber security, such as Airbus Defence and Space, the German Federal Office for Information Security, and Kaspersky.

Joint stands and forums inspire new momentum

On the joint stands "AMA Centre for Sensor Technology, Measurement and Testing Technology" in Hall 4A and "Wireless in Automation" in Hall 10, visitors can obtain specific and comprehensive information on the respective topics. In addition, they can use this opportunity to exchange ideas with vendors on an individual problem or specific topic.

The trade fair forums at SPS IPC Drives also offer the highest level of expertise: In qualified specialist presentations and podium discussions, the ZVEI and VDMA associations in Halls 2 and 3 respectively address topics that are relevant to the user industries. In this way, they facilitate an exchange of knowledge and experience at the highest level.
