Industrie 4.0 – Our Vision

The German mechanical and plant engineering industry is in an advantageous position. It delivers successful key technologies for customers in Germany and abroad and, as the German industry’s innovative backbone, guarantees growth and prosperity in our society. It is precisely this advantageous position that obliges us to intensively deal with new developments and forms in industrial production, and Industrie 4.0 forms part of this.
