Smart sensors, intelligent drives, modular production, automated logistics systems and holistic solutions for intelligent manufacturing – Hannover Messe has it all. The world’s premier trade fair for industrial technology will open its gates under the motto ‘Integrated Industry – Industrial Intelligence’. The motto reflects the organiser’s desire to show how the close integration of automation, power transmission and fluid power and software and IT can supercharge industrial production. At Hannover Messe 2019, this pivotal confluence of technologies will be clustered at Integrated Automation, Motion & Drives (IAMD) – a mega-show spanning 14 exhibition halls. Automation and robotics solutions The IAMD show will feature the full range of products and solutions, including factory and process automation systems, industrial IT, robotics In 2019, the integration, digitisation and interconnection of industrial technologies will transform the world’s manufacturing industries more than ever before. In recognition of this, the IAMD show will feature the full range of products and solutions for the factory of the future, including factory and process automation systems, industrial IT, robotics, smart drives, and intelligent hydraulics and pneumatics systems. All the exhibits will share one unifying theme: ‘Industrial Intelligence’, which is also the official lead theme for Hannover Messe 2019. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are helping to eliminate production downtime, boost efficiency and ensure the seamless integration and operation of all the different parts that make up smart factories. The over 200,000 trade visitors attending the upcoming Hannover Messe will come from a diverse range of user industries. But most will come to the fair with the same clear objective in mind: to find the right state-of-the-art smart automation solutions for their manufacturing operations. For the companies they represent, digitisation is the key to keeping their competitive edge. Integration of industrial technologies IAMD will showcase the best power transmission and fluid power technologies the world has to offer" “Automation solutions for the digitisation and smart integration of industrial technologies will be the focus of the upcoming IAMD show,” said Arno Reich, Global Director IAMD for Hannover Messe. “IAMD will also showcase the best power transmission and fluid power technologies the world has to offer, as well as serving as a central forum for debate on the latest market and technology trends.” While there are still over six months to go until the gates open on the next Hannover Messe, a large number of market leaders – among them Siemens, ABB, Festo, Bosch Rexroth, Schneider Electric, Phoenix Contact and Beckhoff – have already registered display space.
