Hannover Messe 2017: Adding value with Industry 4.0

Hannover Messe, which runs from 24 to 28 April 2017, will sport a rich array of highlights, including a record 500-plus Industry 4.0 applications, self-learning robots with near-human touch sensitivity, and advanced technology solutions for a more sustainable energy future. The show will have around 6500 exhibitors and feature Poland as its official Partner Country.

With Industry 4.0, integrated energy, digital twins, machine learning, predictive maintenance, smart materials, and networked and collaborative robots (cobots), companies of all sizes today have a multitude of high-tech solutions to choose from. But often they find it difficult to predict what value these sorts of solutions might add.

Predictive maintenance through machine learning

Digitalized production processes generate vast quantities of data which are then analysed by various upstream and downstream systems. In the not-too-distant future, manufacturing systems will incorporate machine-learning technologies that analyse this data centrally and feed the results back to the production machines in question, thereby enabling them to learn and self-optimize.  As such, machine learning is fundamental to predictive maintenance – a highly promising aspect of Industry 4.0 that will feature prominently at the upcoming Hannover Messe.

Digitalization as a driver of new business models

Integrated Industry will reach far beyond the walls of smart factories. The goods produced by smart factories will stay connected with their manufacturers throughout their service lives, supplying a constant stream of valuable data. This data will enable the manufacturers to develop additional web-based services and to pursue new business opportunities outside the confines of their traditional industries. At the upcoming Hannover Messe, industrial subcontractors will demonstrate how digitalization helps them to offer innovative and highly customized solutions more quickly than ever before.

Poland: a strong partner in Europe

Innovation and growth – two key areas in which Poland is set to shine as the official Partner Country at Hannover Messe 2017. Apart from domestic reindustrialization, the country’s main economic focus is on opening up foreign markets and supporting innovative Polish companies. Around 150 of these companies will feature at this year’s Hannover Messe.
