Living Industrie 4.0 – 2 days at the German Centre Singapore.
Advanced manufacturing to get your hands on - this is what the first Industrie 4.0 Days were all about. Companies from German SMEs, mainly “Hidden Champions” located in the region, showcased their excellence of Industrie 4.0 solutions in the fully booked lobby of the German Centre.
Beckhoff Automation, Robert Bosch, Fraunhofer Singapore, Festo, Harting, ifm electronics, Murr Elektronik, Pilz South East Asia, Sick, Turck Banner, Werma Signaltechnik, Witron Singapore and Wuerth Industrial Services showcased their solutions for industrial automation and digitalisation. Altogether 30 companies and institutions supported the days with its more than 300 visitors.
At the conference, the exhibitors shared their approaches and best practices, covering trending topics such as seamless connectivity, warehouse automation or standardization, whereas the forum delivered insights on the future of work and cyber security. The conference panel awaited with acknowledged experts from well-known market players, who vividly discussed approaches on smart manufacturing transformation with the audience.
The Industrie 4.0 Days exhibition and conference was the first of its kind hosted in the German Centre and is on the pulse of time for Singapore’s production sector. With its Smart Industry Readiness Index®, a diagnostic tool to drive industrial transformation, Singapore Government has, in partnership with the industry, developed a structure to help SMEs and MNCs across all industries accelerate their Industry 4.0 transformation.
Several tenant companies in the German Centre offer products and services that enable this industrial transformation, usually hidden from public view. The Industrie 4.0 Days were driven by the target to make these “Hidden Champions” visible to a broader audience, an idea that found a lot of support, not only by the German Centre itself, but also their event partners: Fraunhofer Singapore, JTC Group, Singaporean-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce, TÜV Süd and under the auspices of the German Embassy in Singapore.
