From vision to practice - Digital automation at PIA
PIA Automation Inc. Posted 06/26/2019
Bad Neustadt, Germany - Digitization has fundamentally changed mechanical engineering. Modern production systems are no longer based purely on mechatronic solutions; instead they employ a combination of electronic components and state-of-the-art IT. However, in the past, the word "digitization" was generally abstract, rather than tangible. PIA has changed that with a practice-oriented symposium featuring prominent speakers on June 6 in Bad Neustadt. As part of the official opening of its new Headquarters in Bad Neustadt, PIA demonstrated digital automation in practice, using the concrete examples of PIA machines and solutions, and with the support of its expert partners: Festo, Siemens, Balluff, Beckhoff, montratec and Viewpointsystem. Along with a professional exhibition and factory tour through the company's modern premises, more than 200 visitors were treated to a series of exciting technical presentations.
Thomas Ernst (CSO): "In recent years there has been a focus on discussing Industry 4.0, and there have been numerous events around the subject. That is why we were surprised to receive so many registrations so quickly. It shows that there is great interest in practical examples of Industry 4.0. We expect that PIA will hold further events of this kind in the future."
