IT2Industry 2017 @ productronica
IT2Industry—The future is digital
Increased networking between companies, people, processes, data and objects is a central challenge in the industrial sector. IT2Industry bundles products, solutions and services that pertain to the age of Industry 4.0. Experts and visionaries demonstrate how the latest technological capabilities can be put to effective use.
Thanks to its clear industry focus, IT2Industry gives you a compact overview of the entire market. Depending on the host exhibtion, its focus topics may differ from one another considerably. Find out which of your company’s employees IT2Industry is most suitable for.
Precursor of the industrial Internet of Things
IT2Industry is the pivotal trade fair on the topics of automation, production, information technology and IT security. Its range of topics covers the entire production process on the road to the smart factory:
Big data and cloud computing—Infrastructure and production logistics
Cyber physical systems—IT security
Data networks—IT and energy
Embedded systems—Machine to machine (M2M)
IT2Industry—Concentrated focus on your branch of industry
IT2Industry is embedded in international exhibitions that focus on specific branches of industry. It is held in conjunction with productronica, automatica and electronica. Whether you are an exhibitor or a visitor, you can profit from this unique industry focus.
Focus topics IT2Industry@productronica
Due to the industrial Internet of Things, the prerequisites for production and manufacturing are undergoing some fundamental changes. The products and services that are presented at IT2Industry as part of the international trade fair productronica are the link between classic manufacturing and the fourth industrial revolution.
IT2I meets productronica
Globally networked production locations
At IT2Industry, companies will show how decentralized control loops are integrated into the production process. That way, data from the production world that is generated in real time, can be processed by Internet-based services and used in the control process.
Infrastructure and industrial IT security
The more that network-based functions are used in the production process, the more im-portant it becomes to make the network available reliably and in any given situation and to guarantee the best possible physical security. At IT2Industry, companies will offer best-practice examples and services for selecting the right standards and norms.
“Lot size 1”
The industrial Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 can only be optimally implemented if manu-facturing and production are in a position to respond flexibly to individual customer require-ments. In this respect, the range of topics at IT2Industry covers everything from cloud com-puting and big data and analytics to software engineering and security solutions.
Thanks to data analysis, companies are in a position to identify possible failures of machine parts early and with must greater precision than before. As a result, companies at IT2Industry will demonstrate how intelligent production planning can further optimize the capacity utiliza-tion of manufacturing systems.
Energy efficiency of production locations
The industrial Internet of Things will also have a very strong effect on energy efficiency in manufacturing and production. At IT2Industry, the Association of the Bavarian Metal and Electrical Industry (VBM) is holding a session on “Energy and Energy Efficiency” at the ac-companying Open Conference.
The international industry gathering productronica
The next IT2Industry@productronica takes place at the Messe München trade-fair center from November 14–17, 2017. A single ticket allows you to attend and profit from both shows. Additional information will be available here in the autumn of 2016.
IT2Industry 2017 will be located near productronica’s “Semiconductors” and “Future Markets” cluster in Hall B2.
Productronica will occupy the following halls in 2017: A1–A5 and B1–B3.
