Automation Solutions

As a pace setter for innovative economic developments, automation and networking technology makes a very important and increasingly large contribution to industry and infrastructure, especially in mechanical and plant engineering.

New guiding themes set to shape the foreseeable future include energy efficiency, convertible production and digital manufacturing – in other words,  Industrie 4.0.

There is an increasing need for automation technology as it is the key to higher productivity in industry. With fully automated and networked processes, SmartFactory will be offering customers shorter delivery times for individual products in future. 

As such, automation has become an important factor in the success of all sectors of German industry. The resulting drive for innovation plays a key role in ensuring the success of automation solutions in the user industries and an increasingly competitive global market.
