Here are the 5 trends that 240 exhibitors will be highlighting and that you and your team will undoubtedly have to take into account as additional criteria in the coming years:

  • Modularity and lower energy consumption of electronics, controls, and components
    Sensors, drives, controls and actuators are becoming more compact, but also more and more modular and configurable for machine builders and high-tech systems. In addition, energy consumption has become the number one priority.
  • Technology maintenance
    An unmistakable trend that will emerge throughout your visit is the extent to which components, machines, robots and other equipment are able to transmit real-time data down to the smallest functional level, and are monitored online with the aim of analysing and adjusting the slightest anomaly or malfunction. Vibration, temperature, pressure, peaks, load, working hours and other variables are put into context in order to optimise machine downtime, OEE, supply chain, maintenance, etc.
  • More security standards for IoT devices and components
    19 billion connected devices will be in use worldwide by 2022. Hardware vendors at have been working hard to make their latest components fully compliant and certified, using the right protocols, so that tomorrow you will be able to integrate all that is showcased today at the trade fair into your new automation projects, safely and without any hassle.
  • More digital tools to connect processes and staff
    Since the outbreak of the pandemic, technology and component suppliers have been pulling out all the stops to provide proprietary or open platforms for their customers, giving management and operators access to an unprecedented range of digital tools, HMIs, applications and dashboards to control processes on the shop floor in a smarter, more efficient and flawless way.
  • Cloud, Edge and 5G are top priorities
    Connectivity is key. The speed with which data are pumped upstream and downstream, and with which algorithms can do their work, via the cloud and also increasingly close by via the edge, are the common thread running through everything you will find at the trade fair and during the Expert Classes.

7 routes to visit the trade fair in a targeted and time-efficient manner and to obtain a transparent overview of the event

One of the success factors of this technology trade fair is undoubtedly the fact that is divided into 7 technology routes, both online and on site. This will help management and department heads from divisions such as production, engineering, maintenance, scheduling, R&D, supply chain, procurement, after-sales, logistics and so on quickly find the personalised route that best suits their profile, position and challenges.
