We perceive technological trends as digitalization and Industrie 4.0 or the changes in the powertrain industry at a very early stage and set the appropriate impulses. Products of the power transmission engineering industrial sector, which have always been decisive for customers when it comes to power and torque transmission, power density and thus to performance take on an additional dimension with digitalization. Products of the power transmission engineering industry also become a data source as carrier of sensors for intelligent power transmission and for components of Industrie 4.0.
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.
• Power transmission engineering and fluid power are providing the central building blocks for
• 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.
