Machinery, robots, products, logistics and even people - sooner or later, digital systems will network everything and everyone. Although this development brings with it both known and unknown risks, it also without doubt opens up opportunities to gain huge competitive advantages. To realize these opportunities, 370 ComputerKomplett staff from 13 sites in Germany and Switzerland are offering more than 3,200 customers support and guidance as they navigate the fourth industrial revolution. From product development, business management and IT service to solutions either on customer premises or at the ComputerKomplett data center, the goal is always the same - efficient, flexible and customized production and marketing. ComputerKomplett ASCAD GmbH is using some spectacular installations to illustrate its business model at HANNOVER MESSE 2019.
Together with its technology partners PTC, Siemens and abas, the company is showcasing virtual reality (VR), 3D modeling and product lifecycle management (PLM) products and solutions at no fewer than four different stands. The "VR Cave" at the stand of Salzgitter AG in Hall 5, which ComputerKomplett developed in collaboration with Virtalis, is set to be a particular highlight. In the "VR Active Cube" - a virtual room that visitors to the show can enter for real - Salzgitter AG is presenting its new SALCOS (Salzgitter Low CO2 Steelmaking) system. This trendsetting technology is designed to cut the carbon dioxide emissions generated during steelmaking by up to 95 percent. In addition to supplying the hardware for the "VR Active Cube", ComputerKomplett is also providing the software in collaboration with Salzgitter AG and generating 3D models for the virtual room based on 3D CAD and PLM solutions from PTC.
