Hannover Fairs USA and Deutsche Messe officials announced that Siemens will showcase its latest Industry 4.0 solutions at Digital Industry USA 2019 from Sept. 11-12 in Louisville, Kentucky. Spanning the Production Efficiency, Data Analytics, & Cloud hubs on the show floor, Siemens’ presence will demonstrate how manufacturers can leverage Industry 4.0 to gain a competitive advantage in a rapidly changing value chain.
“The digitalization of industry is opening up completely new possibilities for productivity and flexibility,” notes Klaus Helmrich, member of the managing board of Siemens AG and CEO of Digital Industries. “The technical solutions for this are already available, now they need to be implemented. The U.S. manufacturing sector is a leader in the adoption of industrial software, advanced automation, and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions.”
“We are proud to partner with Siemens for our inaugural event,” says Larry Turner, president and CEO of (HFUSA). “We specifically designed the Digital Industry USA trade show and conference to showcase Industry 4.0 and to provide a platform for manufacturers to address their challenges and needs as they implement or expand these disruptive technologies into their facilities. Siemens is a perfect partner as the company is radically improving the factory of the future.”
Raj Batra, president of Siemens Digital Industries U.S. adds, “The U.S. manufacturing sector is increasingly embracing the value proposition of digitalization and setting their sights on becoming truly digital enterprises. Thanks to dramatic improvements in virtualization, automation, and simulation, today this is an attainable objective. For example, it is now possible to create a high-fidelity digital twin of your products, your production operations, and your overall manufacturing performance. Lighthouse factories have proven these concepts in the U.S. and abroad.”
Siemens will demonstrate technologies and services that are part of a proven path to discontinuous value creation in an increasingly digital industrial age. The company will showcase its automation systems for discrete and process industries, software for creating and gaining step-change value from digital twins, the open IIoT platform MindSphere, and a range of digital services including defense-in-depth cybersecurity.
