Smart Electronic Factory at HANNOVER MESSE: Great interest from politics and economy

Industry 4.0 offensive was visited by Minister for Economic Affairs Lemke and by State Minister Dulig at HMI

Montabaur, April 29, 2015 – The Smart Electronic Factory has enjoyed great popularity by political and entrepreneurial representatives at HANNOVER MESSE. On the way to cross-linked and self-organizing factories the Industry 4.0 initiative – from medium-sized companies for medium-sized companies – decisively determines the course for Germany. This has been the tenor of Eveline Lemke, Minister for Economic Affairs in Rhineland-Palatinate. Martin Dulig, Saxon State Minister for Economic Affairs, Labor and Transport, has also emphasized this opinion.

This year’s HANNOVER MESSE went under the slogan “Innovations for integrated industry”. Within the Smart Electronic Factory, being integrated into the real electronics factory of Limtronik GmbH, Industry 4.0 solutions are evaluated and realized – even now. This intelligent factory has been established by its initiators Limtronik and iTAC together with an independent offensive which consists of highly specialized, medium-sized system manufacturers and application suppliers. Objective is the self-organizing factory.

The Smart Electronic Factory has convinced on a political level
The initial key project has been introduced to the public at HANNOVER MESSE. Among iTAC from Rhineland-Palatinate and the Hessian company Limtronik further members of the offensive were also represented: in-GmbH from Constance and DUALIS GmbH IT Solution from Dresden. These four companies present their solutions in the course of the Smart Electronic Factory. The Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen (THM) – a university of Applied Sciences – was represented as well.

The practical orientation and the innovation regarding the fourth industrial revolution have enjoyed great popularity by political visitors of the booth. Thus, Eveline Lemke, Minister for Economic Affairs, especially regards Rhineland-Palatinate and its companies as excellently prepared for the process of integrated industry. “With iTAC Software AG from Montabaur and further exhibitors as well Rhineland-Palatinate is strongly represented with the topic Industry 4.0”, Lemke emphasized.

The Saxon State Minister Martin Dulig has also been fascinated by the Smart Electronic Factory being in such an industry-suitable state. With DUALIS from Dresden, a company of the Free State Saxon is also part of this “impressive” project.

For the fair’s visitors, coming from all over the world, the special feature of the Smart Electronic Factory lies in the fact that it already contains real application scenarios for Industry 4.0 being integrated into an authentic manufacturing site. The final objective is the self-learning machine in the meaning of Industry 4.0.
