Integrated Industry at Hannover Messe 2013

15 March 2013

Staged under the banner of ‘Integrated Industry’, Hannover Messe 2013 will have a strong emphasis on industrial automation and IT, energy and environmental technologies, power transmission and control, industrial subcontracting, manufacturing technologies, services and R&D

The lead theme of Integrated Industry signals Hannover Messe's strong focus on the current trend towards integration across all areas of industry. "Integrated Industry is about making smarter and more efficient industrial production. It’s also about multidisciplinary cooperation between different industries and different enterprises,” says Dr. Köckler, a member of the German trade fairs managing board.

For instance, in the near future, smart materials will be able to tell machines how they should be processed, and components will be able to issue their own maintenance and repair requests. "Direct communication between the various systems involved in production will facilitate material and energy savings and make processes much faster and more efficient,” said Dr. Köckler. 
 
WITH A STRONG FOCUS ON INTEGRATED AUTOMATION PROCESSES, KEY THEMES WILL INCLUDE EMBEDDED SYSTEMS AND SMART PRODUCTION


In addition to these various forms of technical and electronic networking, ‘Integrated Industry’ encompasses the challenge facing all areas of industry as they seek to cooperate across corporate and sector boundaries. "In the future, cross-industry alliances will be even more important than they are now,” explains Dr. Köckler. "Among other things, the focus here will be on knowledge transfer and new forms of collaboration. Alliances between industrial companies and software providers are a good example of this.”
