In modern production, industrial and logistical processes are becoming increasingly interlinked. This development is based on robust, efficient and reliable microelectronics. For example, modern design methods enable the development of intelligent sensors that are especially small, long-lasting and capable while also bringing together a wide range of functions. Wireless technologies offer decisive advantages over wired solutions when it comes to data exchange between automated systems.
Analyzing the enormous volumes of data with maximum efficiency and effectiveness is a massive challenge but also offers immense potential for companies. Optimized quality assurance, maintenance and condition monitoring of machines and systems is made possible by the resulting data. Intelligent controls and regulating systems lead to greater process stability, reduced energy consumption and better utilization of resources.
