Reflecting digital change


Reflecting digital change

The outlook for the 29th SPS IPC Drives event is again very positive. Some 1,700 automation providers from all over the world are expected in Nuremberg on 27 - 29 November 2018. Products and solutions, as well as trend-setting technologies of the future, will be on show.

As in the previous year, Industry 4.0 and digital change are topics of focus at SPS IPC Drives 2018. Exhibitors will present not only their solutions, but also various products and example applications for digital transformation. This will be accompanied by topic-related showcases and presentations at the exhibition forums. The firm commitment that IT companies such as SAP bring to exploring industrial communication topics (such as OPC UA and TSN) shows how the IT and automation industries are increasingly merging. This process is also reflected in the hall occupation at SPS IPC Drives: in 2018, the topic of software and IT in manufacturing will be on display in Halls 5 and 6. Industrial web services, virtual product development and design, digital business platforms, IT/OT technologies, fog/edge and cloud computing, and many other topics will be covered here. Cybersecurity is also being addressed by numerous vendors, who will offer explanatory demonstrations at their booths of how companies can protect themselves against online attacks.

This year’s Automation 4.0 Summit will once again complement the exhibition program on the first two days of the event. It will address topics from the Industry 4.0 space such as edge computing in industry, TSN and OPC UA in industrial environments, IoT platforms in industry, and sensors for Industry 4.0
