Has IIoT Become the Norm Across All Industrial Sectors? Industry Experts Say

Larry Turner for Industry Week:  Industry 4.0 applications and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions have been disrupting the global manufacturing industry since the term Industry 4.0 was coined more than six years ago at Hannover Messe. We’ve come a long way since then. IIoT is now widely recognized across all industrial sectors by manufacturers large and small and continues to develop at a rapid pace. Innovative IIoT technologies and solutions are slowly becoming omnipresent on the factory floor from machine controllers to field devices, to software and communications. Organizations are becoming more firmly rooted in the world of the integrated industry.

As IIoT makes its way into all aspects of industrial sectors, Hannover Fairs USA and our German-based parent and organizer of Hannover Messe, Deutsche Messe (DMAG), continue to further the introduction of the latest IIoT solutions into North America. We started in 2012 with the launch of DMAG’s Industrial Automation trade show and conference at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS). Earlier this year, DMAG combined Industrial Automation with its other world renowned industrial technology event, Motion, Drive & Automation, to better address global integrated industry business needs. A new event was formed - Integrated Automation, Motion & Drives trade show (IAMD) - which will continue to shine a spotlight on the competitive advantages of Industry 4.0 and IIoT implementations and challenges in North America.

Making its debut at IMTS 2018 in Chicago next September, IAMD will host the world’s leading Industry 4.0 experts who will provide valuable insights for manufacturers looking to launch and scale IIoT solutions in their facilities. The drivers of IIoT technology developments will be on the show floor and speaking at the Global Automation & Manufacturing Summit held in conjunction with IAMD. North American manufacturers who attend will get the chance to source and to demonstrate the latest innovations of intelligent machines and software that address revenue generation and will help them secure their competitive edge while satisfying customer demand.  Full Article:
