SPS, the largest international trade fair for electrical automation technology, will take place in Nuremberg from November 26 to 28. Device Insight is represented there together with different partners: At the Microsoft partner stand, Device Insight will demonstrate the combination of innovative robotics and IoT using the robot band “club_KUKA” as showcase. In addition, the newly founded Open Industry 4.0 Alliance, whose implementation partner is Device Insight, will be presented for the first time.
On tour with the robot band
club_KUKA is a KUKA show stage combining entertainment and robotics with technical precision and artistic value. Four robots rock together on their own Plug & Play stage. Featuring the IoT platform CENTERSIGHT, based on Microsoft Azure, a further technological component has now been added to SPS: Robotics meets IoT meets Entertainment. Device Insight presents itself with this eyecatcher at the Microsoft partner booth in Hall 5, Stand 338.
Open Industry 4.0 Alliance presents itself to the trade audience
The Open Industry 4.0 Alliance was announced for the first time at the Hannover Messe 2019. Their goal: a standardized and open ecosystem for the digital transformation of industrial production facilities. This should make it easier for end users to network their production. Proprietary isolated solutions, still common today, are to be overcome.
The founding of the alliance was announced in April 2019. Since then, the alliance has grown to more than 40 members with different industrial core competencies. In October 2019, the association behind the Alliance was founded to further strengthen the official character of the alliance. . Device Insight also supported the Open Industry 4.0 Alliance from the outset as a technology supplier and system integrator for KUKA. This initiative will now be presented at SPS in Hall 5, Stand 160 and will use live demos to show how the initiative has developed over the last six months. Taking center stage: consistent and secure networking from the machine to the cloud.
More information can be found in the KUKA AG press release.
Further events at a glance
In addition to SPS, other events are taking place in November featuring Device Insight:
- The “After Sales Service” Engineering Forum on November 12 and 13 in Pforzheim will address the question of how machine engineers can take advantage of the possibilities offered by digital technologies. From commissioning to spare parts management to field service and retrofit – no area that cannot be made more efficient by IoT, predictive maintenance, remote service or virtual reality or that offers room for completely new business models. Device Insight will present itself at its own stand, showing how service can be raised to a new level thanks to the IoT CENTERSIGHT platform.
- On November 19, Microsoft invites you to the “Microsoft Envision Forum: Manufacturing – Industry Day” to discuss future trends in the manufacturing and process industries. In interactive lectures and discussions, representatives from industry as well as experts from selected partner companies and Microsoft will present their experiences and real-life practical examples in the fields of IoT, Industry 4.0, Artificial Intelligence and digital transformation.
