The digital transformation of industry and maintenance is on the rise. RFID & Wireless IoT are the key technologies to solve the industry's challenges on this path into the future:

  • Disruption as an opportunity: Seeing and implementing digital business models
  • From big data to smart data
  • Smooth implementation of transformation processes
  • Digital value chains
  • New production concepts: The digital twin and 3D printing
  • Digitalisation of product and service portfolios
  • Saving resources, producing efficiently, protecting the environment
  • Production in lot sizes of one
  • Predictive maintenance and repairs
  • Preventing product piracy and manipulation
  • Secure M2M communication: Cybersecurity for connected machines and productions

Eight specialists bring the latest information from all over the world to the conference on successfully rolled out projects. The combination of best-practice examples and the trade fair with over 70 exhibitors provides real added value. With inspiration from the presentations and the opportunity to get to know the solutions and products of the hardware and system providers in the exhibition, a basis for discussion about digital visions in the industry and maintenance of tomorrow is created.
