INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION

INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION MDA NORTH AMERICA September 12-17, 2016 Chicago, Illinois ia-na.com mda-na.com

Editorial Discover Industrial Automation Dear readers, the demand for further optimization of industrial production processes, plants and machines continues unabated worldwide and still offers many branches enormous development potential. This is driving the developments in all areas of automation technology – always with an eye to implementing the shortest possible time-to-market of products, and that in a resource-conserving and energy-efficient way. The trends here lie in the development of integrated systems that combine different functions, in an automated and networked process control and in technologies that permit open communication from the field through to the corporate level. With this edition of AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGIES, we are keeping you up to date and reporting on companies who follow these trends. A fairly unusual project here is the methanization plant at Audi AG. The use of the latest technologies here enables excess energy from wind power and photovoltaics to be expediently used by converting the renewable electricity into synthetic, CO 2 -neutral methane and feeding this into the natural gas grid. Equally as exciting is an example from aviation in which thermographic processes are of immense benefit in the construction of energy-saving aircraft. An extraordinary idea of a different kind is being presented by igus with their ‚Around the world tour‘. We would particularly like to recommend to you our country special USA and the INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION NORTH AMERICA (IANA) industrial fair being staged from September 8 thru 13 in the McCormick Place, Chicago, at the same time as the IMTS. Hannover Fairs USA, Inc., the US subsidiary of the Deutsche Messe AG, is staging the IANA and the MDA NA in cooperation with the AMT – the Association for Manufacturing Technology. So get inspired to feature next-generation technologies and meet us – the editorial team of AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGIES and the team of Hannover Fairs International – in the German Pavilion at the fair. Yours sincerely, Nicole Steinicke, Editor, Automation Technologies Thomas Labendsch, Project Director, Hannover Fairs International AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGIES 3/2014
