As part of her traditional Hannover Messe visit, Angela Merkel visited the Weidmuller stand last April, accompanied by US President Barack Obama. The USA was the Messe partner country this year. During their joint visit the two politicians attended several stands from companies making waves in the industry with their innovative solutions.
The two state heads took great interest in the Industry 4.0 Cockpit on the Weidmüller stand. A sample application demonstrated how the central control of a production facility of the future could look. It combined the wide range of Industry 4.0 solutions implemented by Weidmüller to date, into a single exhibit. It showed, on one hand, the networking of technical systems and on the other, integrated solution approaches for customers. Industry 4.0 solutions on the stand included the application areas of Industrial Analytics, Cloud Services, Energy Management, Digitalisation and Networking and Data Consistency.
