Electrical automation – classic and future technology

The foundation of the data-driven factory

Electrical automation was already the core element of the 3rd industrial revolution in the middle of the 20th century – modern production is not economically feasible today without automation. Interestingly, however, automation technology has thus also laid the solid foundation for the 4th industrial revolution (Industry 4.0). The data-driven smart factory can only be brought to life if data can be obtained, processed and ultimately used as ‘raw material’.

Modern sensor technology, innovative control technology and IT-supported evaluation ‘on the edge’ or also in the cloud thus form the basis of every Industry 4.0 concept. The role played by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), how the numerous existing sensor data can be used sensibly, and how all of this leads to reliable control, will be discussed by experts from science and industry at the “Electrical Automation – Classics and Future Technology” summit.


The summit is aimed primarily at management in metalworking/processing and mechanical/vehicle engineering, as well as safety engineers, technical management, automation specialists, design/development managers, system integrators and production and manufacturing managers.

The target sectors are in particular the automotive industry, OEMs and suppliers, metalworking and processing, mechanical engineering, electronics industry, food industry, packaging, plastics.


The event is supported by our partners in South Africa, Turkey and Morocco. The conference language is German with simultaneous English and French translation.


The agenda is still under construction and will be added successively. Registration will open shortly.
