Digital Factory

Intelligent Networking

Automation without software? Unthinkable. Smart grids without IT? Impossible.  Industry 4.0 is a software-driven environment – marked by machine-to-machine communication and an increasingly complex network – all with the goal of making industrial processes more responsive, efficient, and flexible.

The industrial world is swiftly changing – engineers, developers, production planners and production specialists, maintenance technicians, and service providers need to digitalize their processes. An unbroken digital value-adding chain is an essential prerequisite for staying afloat in today’s dynamic manufacturing environment.

Digital Factory at HANNOVER MESSE is your key hub for the factory of the future. Don’t get left behind.
