The showcase, the partners and the SmartFactoryKL built is the worldwide first, manufacturer overreaching Industrie 4.0 demonstration plant and again gained excessive interest at this year’s Hannover’s fair.”
"Connectivity is an all-encompassing trend, one that will affect all walks of life. INDUSTRY 4.0 in particular offers Germany an opportunity to improve its competitiveness as an industrial location. A consistent user focus is crucial if connectivity is to succeed. Moreover, alliances involving different companies are an important driver of connected solutions.
