SICK AG demonstrates 4.0 NOW Factory at Hannover
With the fourth industrial revolution in full swing, it seems everybody is talking about Industry 4.0 (I 4.0) right now
Hannover, April 2019 – Exhibiting under the banner of "4.0 NOW", SICK AG showed visitors to HANNOVER MESSE 2019 exactly how production and logistics can be effectively networked - and how data transparency makes it possible to harness opportunities to add value in real time.
With the fourth industrial revolution in full swing, it seems everybody is talking about Industry 4.0 (I 4.0) right now: The ability to network and control machines and processes using information and communication technologies is set to drastically change production processes as we know them. The production of the future may still be in its conceptual stages right now, but it is already very much a reality for SICK: In the production facility, the 4.0 NOW Factory, at the Freiburg site, robots and employees are working side by side to produce the new SICK sensors with twelve fully automated production technology modules, four manual workstations, and a hybrid workstation at their disposal.
