Hannover Fairs USA and Deutsche Messe, the organizers of the world’s largest manufacturing show HANNOVER MESSE and its North American edition, HANNOVER MESSE USA, announces that Siemens, a global leader in the fields of industrial automation and digitalization, will showcase its latest Industry 4.0 solutions at Digital Industry USA 2019 from Sept. 11-12 in Louisville, KY. Spanning the Production Efficiency and Data Analytics & Cloud hubs on the show floor, the Siemens presence will demonstrate how manufacturers can successfully leverage Industry 4.0 technology to gain competitive advantage in a rapidly transforming value chain.
“The digitalization of industry is opening up completely new possibilities for productivity and flexibility. The technical solutions for this are already available, now they need to be implemented. The U.S. manufacturing sector is a leader in the adoption of industrial software, advanced automation and IIoT solutions. The new Digital Industry USA event by Hannover Fairs USA provides the ideal platform for providers and users of these technologies to drive forward the implementation together and to co-create innovations for the next stage of the digital transformation,” says Klaus Helmrich, member of the managing board of Siemens AG and CEO of Digital Industries.
“We are proud to partner with Siemens for our inaugural event,” says Larry Turner, President and CEO of (HFUSA), the organizer of Digital Industry USA, a new biennial trade show and conference dedicated to the factory of the future. “We specifically designed the Digital Industry USA trade show and conference to showcase Industry 4.0 and to provide a platform for manufacturers to address their challenges and needs as they implement or expand these disruptive technologies into their facilities. Siemens is a perfect partner as the company is radically improving the factory of the future,” adds Turner.
Raj Batra, President of Siemens Digital Industries U.S. adds, “The U.S. manufacturing sector is increasingly embracing the value proposition of digitalization and setting their sights on becoming truly digital enterprises. Thanks to dramatic improvements in virtualization, automation, and simulation, today this is an attainable objective. For example, it is now possible to create a high-fidelity digital twin of your products, your production operations and your overall manufacturing performance. Lighthouse factories have proven these concepts in the U.S. and abroad.” Batra continued, “We will be showcasing some of the most innovative new technologies at Digital Industry USA, and we are looking forward to engaging there with companies at all stages of their own digital enterprise journey.”
Siemens will demonstrate technologies and services that are part of a proven path to discontinuous value creation in an increasingly digital industrial age. The company will showcase its automation systems for discrete and process industries, software for creating and gaining step-change value from digital twins, the open IIoT platform “MindSphere” and a range of digital services including defense-in-depth cybersecurity.
