Here it comes again. From April 1st to 5th, Hannover Messe will present the latest innovations for smart sensors, intelligent drives, modular production, automated logistics systems and holistic solutions developed to lead the transformation from traditional to intelligent manufacturing.
The motto of the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology is “Integrated Industry – Industrial Intelligence”.
Supercharged industrial production
The integration, digitization and interconnection of industrial technologies will transform the world’s manufacturing industries more than ever before. In recognition of this, the IAMD show will feature the full range of products and solutions for the factory of the future, including factory and process automation systems, industrial IT, robotics, smart drives, and intelligent hydraulics and pneumatics systems. All of the exhibits will share one unifying theme: “Industrial Intelligence”, which is also the official lead theme for Hannover Messe 2019. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are helping to eliminate production downtime, boost efficiency and ensure the seamless integration and operation of all the different parts that make up smart factories.
Trade visitors will come to the fair with the same clear objective in mind: to find the right state-of-the-art smart automation solutions for their manufacturing operations. For the companies they represent, digitization is the key to keeping their competitive edge.
Automation means digitization
“Automation solutions for the digitization and smart integration of industrial technologies will be the focus of the upcoming IAMD show,” said Arno Reich, Global Director IAMD for Hannover Messe. “IAMD will also showcase the best power transmission and fluid power technologies the world has to offer, as well as serving as a central forum for debate on the latest market and technology trends.”
While there are still over six months to go until the gates open on the next Hannover Messe, a large number of market leaders – among them Siemens, ABB, Festo, Bosch Rexroth, Schneider Electric, Phoenix Contact and Beckhoff – have already registered display space. Confirmed exhibitors of intelligent power transmission and fluid power technology solutions include Sew Eurodrive, Schaeffler, Continental, Aventics, Hydac, KTR, Parker Hannifin, Trelleborg and ZF Friedrichshafen.
All the market leaders in the robotics industry will also be represented at the show, including Fanuc, Kuka, Yaskawa, Kawasaki, Universal Robots, Hiwin and Mitsubishi.
Sensor systems are a key enabling technology for fully integrated, interconnected and intelligent operations across a wide range of different industries, including the energy industry, the mechanical engineering industry and the eMobility sector. The fact that sensor technology has become something of a unifying theme throughout Hannover Messe will be borne out by leading market players, such as ifm electronic, SICK, Pepperl + Fuchs, Hans Turck and Balluff.
