The Harting production line, as an Integrated Industry Demonstrator, presents the topic holistically and combines elements such as the flexible assembly system "FlexiMon", a research project conducted within the framework of the "it's OWL" leading-edge cluster, with system integration solutions on the basis of SAP. "With this production line we have also included the aspects of the Smart Factory, the internet of things and services, and the Industrial Internet", Claus Hilger, Managing Director Harting IT Services, says.
Consequently, a Plug&Produce modularization concept based on the Han-Modular standard was implemented in the demonstrator, for example. The production unit with three production cells is linked into the fabrication environment via a smart infrastructure solution.
In Hannover, the company will be presenting the topic of Integrated Industry as something to be experienced, and that in a comprehensible way, as Hilger also underscores. At the world's largest industrial fair this April, the supplier will also be showcasing a range of new, innovative products and solutions, all in the context of "Integrated Industry".
