Staged under the keynote theme of Integrated Industry NEXT STEPS, the trade fair focused on intelligent, self-organizing factories and the transformation of energy systems. According to Dr. K ckler: Industry 4.0 will be with us sooner than many people would have thought possible just one short year ago. The exercisers at this Hanover message have demonstrated a clear commitment to negotiate the next steps on the road to the fourth industrial revolution, quickly and purposefully A total of over 180,000 visitors came to Hannover to explore the future of industry and invest in the latest factory and energy technology on show by some 5,000 exhibitors. This year s HANNOVER MESSE Partner Country was the Netherlands.
the theme of this exhibition is the next step of integrated industry, focusing on intelligent, self-organizing factories and the transformation of energy systems. Dr. K ckler said: industry 4.0 will probably come earlier than many people thought just a year ago. The exhibitors of Hannover Industrial Expo have made a clear commitment to make a successful leap forward on the road of realizing the fourth industrial revolution quickly and pertinently.

The partner country of this year's Hannover industrial exposition is the Netherlands
Dr. Dietmar Harting, Chairman of the HANNOVER MESSE Exhibitor Committee, was also clearly impressed: HANNOVER MESSE is where digitized, integrated industry is putting down roots, before growing into a mighty tree. This is the starting point for driving industrial advancement in countries around the world. For us exhibitors, Integrated Industry is going to remain a key priority for some time to come.
Dr. Dietmar HARTING, chairman of the exhibitor Committee of Hannover Industrial Expo, was also impressed by the exhibition: Hannover Industrial Expo is like a digital and integrated industry taking root before becoming a towering tree. This is a starting point to promote the industrial progress of all countries in the world. For our exhibitors, integrated industry will remain the top priority for some time to come
The many and varied exhibits of Industry 4.0 plant and machinery made the coming industrial revolution a tangible reality for those in attendance. HANNOVER MESSE left no doubt about the rapid progress achieved, even over the course of recent months, said K ckler. Many components which will be of crucial importance for the new industrial manufacturing environment were on display at the tradeshow which also showcased market-ready solutions and products addressing the key challenges of standardization and IT security. A large number of demo installations gave visitors a first hand view of products moving through the various stages of production without any human intervention will be fed back to the manufacturer of polyurethane products on until individual processing at the very end Data security was another core issue at the fair. Forum debates on process and data security issues attracted several thousand visitors, and industrial businesses will definitely be cooperating more closely with international cybersecurity providers, to prepare factories for the extensive integration that lies ahead, noted K ckler.
the diverse display of factories and machinery in industry 4.0 makes the future industrial revolution vivid and real to the audience. There is no doubt that the process of Hannover Industrial Expo has been rapid, even in the past few months, K ckler said. Many components that will become critical to the new industrial manufacturing environment were displayed at the exhibition, as well as the necessary solutions in the market and products that mainly solve the challenges of standardization and it security. A large number of demonstration devices give the audience a first-hand impression of the product, from the production of each stage without any human intervention to the final individual processing. Data security is another core issue of this exhibition. The debate on process and data security issues at the forum attracted thousands of listeners, and industrial enterprises will work more closely with international network security suppliers to prepare for the widely integrated factories in front of them, K ckler said
The focus of attention in the energy halls was on the transformation of energy systems. Future growth in the use of renewable forms of energy, decentralized energy supply systems and intelligent distribution systems were high on the agenda. Exhibitors presented technologies and solutions for the ongoing energy transition, with displays lending firm shape to the energy systems of the future. A stand-out example was a product from SAG GmbH winner of this year s HERMES AWARD for making it possible to progressively convert existing distribution networks into smart grids. Innovative energy storage technologies were another core topic at the fair. These systems are used to store energy that is not immediately required, for use in periods of peak demand. The exhibitors have shown us that concrete solutions for the energy transition are already available, observed K ckler. Technology is the key to the energy transition, and that technology is on display right here in Hannover.
the Department of energy focuses on the transformation of energy systems. In the future, the application of renewable energy forms will grow, and decentralized energy supply systems and intelligent distribution systems will be put on the agenda respectively. Exhibitors presented technologies and solutions for the ongoing energy transition, as well as rental companies suitable for future energy systems. A prominent example is that this year's winners of the Hermes Award for a product of sag company can gradually transform the existing distribution network into smart electricity. Innovative energy storage technology is another core theme of the exhibition. These systems are used to store energy that is not immediately needed, but during peak demand. Exhibitors have shown us that specific solutions for energy transformation have been launched, observed K ckler. Technology is the key to the energy transition, and the demonstration of these technologies in Hannover is at the right time
The keynote theme of Integrated Industry NEXT STEPS also featured prominently throughout Industrial Subcontracting the trade fair dedicated to this all-important sector of industry. Component suppliers will be essential partners in the creation of Industry 4.0 and energy technologies, and smart factories will need smart components, sourced from innovative suppliers like the ones exhibiting their ideas here in Hannover. As champions of integration, component-makers have already taken great strides towards the fourth industrial revolution, said K ckler.
the next exhibition theme of integrated industry is also a significant feature of the whole industrial subcontracting. The exhibition focuses on this very important industrial field. Component suppliers will be an important partner in creating industry 4.0 and energy technology, while smart factories need smart components and procurement from innovative suppliers that display their ideas in Hannover. Due to the advantages of integration, component manufacturers have made significant progress towards the fourth industrial revolution, said K ckler
