Clear the stage for digital production
It’s obvious that Digital Factory is growing: Without software there is no Industrie 4.0 and no IoT. Digital Factory is the nerve center of HANNOVER MESSE. Visualization, additive manufacturing, CAx, PLM, ERP, and MES – in the midst of the leading trade fair for industrial integrated processes and IT solutions, Digital Factory gives answers to all IT and process questions along the industrial process chain.
But the product spectrum is not the only unique thing about it. This leading trade fair’s integrated approach is unparalleled: By linking product design to all other business processes it creates a crucial bridge within Industrie 4.0.
