The Schaeffler Group has been consistently implementing its digital agenda. This includes the takeover of autinity. The Chemnitz-based IT company specialises in digital machine data recording and evaluation. The availability of machine data and the near real-time recording thereof, as well as storage and analysis, is decisive for the digitalisation of production. For this reason, Schaeffler is focusing on technically simple and scalable integration of machines and equipment into a digital ecosystem for its production. Moreover, available analysis technologies are to be made applicable to production data.

“Mobility for tomorrow” strategy

As part of its “Mobility for tomorrow” strategy, Schaeffler has defined digitalisation as a core future opportunity. Establishing internal structures, the partnership with IBM, the cooperation with the Friedrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (SHARE at FAU), the active involvement in the industrial data space in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute, and the takeover of autinity are important components in implementing Schaeffler’s digital agenda.


Schaeffler is currently working on 30 digitalisation projects and their number is planned to double. The acquisition of autinity is part of the M&A strategy adopted by the Group.
