Between April 24 and 28 at the Hannover Messe, visitors to the Siemens booth in Hall 9 will have the opportunity to gain a first-hand impression of the company's comprehensive portfolio. Exhibits will cover everything from electrification and automation through to digitalization over an area of roughly 3,500 square meters.
Innovations in the field of energy distribution, automation and drive systems as well as industrial software will illustrate ways in which companies can boost their competitive standing, with the focus on the "Digital Enterprise". Siemens will be showcasing both specific aspects of the Digital Enterprise in discrete manufacturing and the process industries, and also common foundations shared across every sector: Industrial communication, IT Security and Industrial Services. The MindSphere Lounge will be providing a special setting for visitors to discover the cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens. Here, Siemens and partner companies will be presenting their ideas, backed up by practical case studies and applications. Expert talks will be given on such topics as digitalization, Industrie 4.0 and IoT, inviting an open exchange between participants.
Also on show at the booth will be concrete examples taken from practice to demonstrate ways in which companies can benefit from merging the real and virtual worlds. The central exhibits at this year's booth will provide visitors with a graphic illustration of selected topics for a direct hands-on experience. One of these relates to dairy production and will be showing ways in which food and beverage producers can use digitalized solutions to respond flexibly to changing market requirements such as the growing diversity of tastes - ranging from milk processing to bottling, packaging and labeling.
The "Energy for Industry" showcase will demonstrate how industrial enterprises can set up their own energy management system, allowing them to drive down energy costs, reach their efficiency goals and additionally profit from the energy market. The "Pharmaceuticals" showcase will illustrate ways in which pharmaceutical companies can both sustainably optimize and customize their production process whilst complying with the strictest quality and safety standards.
The "Additive Manufacturing" showcase will demonstrate how 3D printing can be made industrially viable thanks to a complete portfolio of software and automation solutions.
