No, those are not typos in the headline. "Krökeln" is the name for foosball in the HANNOVER MESSE region, and automation specialist Pilz is competing at the world's largest industry fair this year with a fully automated foosball team against the region’s professional foosballers and top international contenders.
Experts from Pilz are presenting comprehensive security and automation solutions at the Industrial Automation trade fair – everything from sensor and control technology to drive engineering. The core focus is user friendliness, which supports simple operation, control and diagnosis. HANNOVER MESSE visitors can find this playful ease with the model demonstration at the Pilz stand: in this year of the 2014 World Cup, an automated foosball table showcases the teamwork between different components and systems. Equipped with sensor, control and drive engineering as well as visualization technology, the table celebrates the tiki-taka of modern soccer – so come to HANNOVER MESSE and see how you make out against the perfect plays by the Pilz kickers. There are great prizes to be won!
