Flexible automation solutions offer enormous potential for the challenges of industry 4.0 and are of vital importance in high-wage countries like Germany. Especially the automation of manual production processes with low volumes could strengthen the competitiveness of small and medium-sized companies in the long term. But today's automation solutions are often complex, expensive and difficult to integrate into production. With modular approaches, however, even applications with a greater variety of products can be automated flexibly and efficiently. The challenge lies in the diversity of system architectures.

The talk will present practice-proven solutions with standardized and cost-effective automation modules, which keep both engineering and investment costs low and at the same time provide flexible solutions.
