The Tour Themes 2019 at a glance

Tour 1 – Industrial Automation & IT

This tour will show you just how close the interplay can be between automation, drive technology and fluid power, pneumatics and software – thanks to smart sensors, intelligent drive solutions, modular production, robotics or integrated solutions for intelligent manufacturing. The name of the game: continuous data streams from product idea and the planning to production engineering and downstream service. Discover the latest solutions and innovations from IT and industrial automation and see how robotics and automation can be used to increase production efficiency. Get insight into how process control systems, measuring and control technology, intelligent sensors and products and solutions for instrumentation can boost plant productivity and save energy at the same time

Tour 1A:

Tour 2 - Industry 4.0 & Industrial Internet

If you want to get an overview of how machines communicate horizontally and vertically via sensors, how individualized mass production works or how products get their own blueprints programmed into them, then you won’t want to miss this tour. Bringing the real and the virtual world together – that is the basic idea of Industry 4.0. Or, to put it more concretely: Industry 4.0 demands the synthesis of production and automation with IT. Find out how networking, integration and interdisciplinary cooperation actually work in practice. The companies we’ll take you to are pioneers of the fourth industrial revolution. When it comes to the Smart Factory, Virtual Reality or the Internet of Things, the vision of connecting all industrial processes has already become a reality.

Tour 2A:
Bosch Rexroth, Endress+Hauser Messtechnik, it's OWL - Intelligent Technical Systems OstWestfalenLippe, MB connect line, Pepperl + Fuchs, Phoenix Contact, WITTENSTEIN, ZVEI-Stand Modular Production

Tour 2B:
ADAMOS, Beckhoff Automation, Haier COSMOPlat, IBM, ifm electronic, ORACLE Deutschland, Salzgitter, SICK

Tour 3 – Industry in Digital Transformation – Industrial Intelligence

Machine learning based on artificial intelligence makes it possible to accumulate experience and make predictions based on large amounts of data with embedded algorithms. Artificial intelligence is based on pattern recognition and has the ability to independently generate knowledge from accumulated experience. And this technology is thus also being applied to industrial processes. The most frequently used learning method consists of image recognition. Other applications include digital assistants or intelligent bots, production quality analysis, facial recognition, speech recognition and processing, automated translation and transcription, text and video analysis, and autonomous driving.

Tour 3:
Accenture, Continental, Deutsche Telekom, IBM, Phoenix Contact, SAP Deutschland, Weidmüller Interface

Tour 4 - Predictive Maintenance 4.0

Predictive maintenance based on intelligent data analysis and immediate availability of that data has become a key value driver in industrial processes, beginning with the selection of the right provider. The Internet of Things is all about interconnectedness – the digital integration of machine components, products and upstream and downstream systems. Predictive maintenance is a pivotal part of the Industry 4.0 landscape and represents an inevitable refinement of traditional maintenance strategies. Learn from innovative companies which have already actively implemented such maintenance systems! Participants on this tour will benefit from having a look at the latest concepts, applications and solutions.

Tour 4:
compacer, Elgi Equipments, IBM, Phoenix Contact, Predictive Maintenance Pavilion, Rittal, SOLIHDE, symmedia

Tour 5 - Innovative Industrial Logistics

Logistics along the production chain still offers enormous potential for increased competitiveness. Industry 4.0 not only makes it possible to use modular, scalable automation in the logistics process – it also makes it simpler and less risky to implement. Demonstrate to your tour guests exactly how Logistics 4.0 and Industry 4.0 interact, how they facilitate each other and the reserves that are released by implementing them.

Tour 5:
Bossard, Endress+Hauser Messtechnik, Phoenix Contact, SAP Deutschland, SSI Schäfer

Tour 6 - Integrated Energy: The Power Behind the Industry

How to translate Industry 4.0 into energy solutions? How does an energy system influence digitized industry? And what new business models does the connected energy world open up?
