Working Groups

In this working group, manufacturers of drive technology are working together on a central challenge of Industry 4.0:the standardized possibility for data and information exchange between components, machines and services.
On April 17, 2018, leading manufacturers from the power transmission engineering sector met at the kick-off meeting for the VDMA Industry 4.0/OPC UA drive technology working group. In the inaugural meeting, fundamental issues were discussed and the first measures taken for further work.

Industrie 4.0

• Power transmission engineering and fluid power are providing the central building blocks for Industrie 4.0
• IAMD: A new leading trade fair is being launched
• Comprehensive event program from VDMA associations at the Hannover Messe


The manufacturing industry has clearly understood that maintenance (PM) is a key issue, a precondition for efficient, sustainable service delivery in the future. Progress in the technologies required by PM is swift and significant.
