Fair topics: Digital transformation end-to-end

Experience the next level of Industry 4.0 at our booth and pursue the digital journey in end-to-end manufacturing, from digital transformation to digitized product development and production towards to new digital services:

Smart Products Thanks to Digital Engineering

Users place ever greater demands on products and the options for customisation. Intelligent products are created in dialogue with customers, using digital design, creativity and agility. This ensures that the customer experience is at the foreground. Come and test our products, which are a prime example of smart products.

Smart Factory with Digital Operations

The intelligent factory uses digital technologies such as the Internet of Things, Big Data Analytics, artificial intelligence and advanced robot technology to increase productivity, quality and flexibility.

See at our booth:


  • Smart Factory based on Kinova’s voice-controlled robots using Artificial Intelligence for the automation of quality controls
  • Digital Operations shown on the basis of examples of innovative human-machine interfaces (HMI) for production – jointly developed with our technology partner Diotasoft

  Smart Services with New Business Models

In the Internet of Things, it is only a small step from networked production and connected products to Smart Services, which allows companies to develop completely new business models.

We will show you:

  • Smart Services such as the IoT-based mobility solution Mov’In Blue, an easy to integrate solution, e.g. deployable for fleet management or temporary factory side access – developed with our partner Valeo
