On behalf of Hannover Fairs USA, I am pleased to announce and welcome you to the 2018 Integrated Industries Conference at Hannover Messe USA on Tuesday, September 11, 2018. Hannover Messe USA is the exhibition as the North American extension of the iconic Hannover Messe trade show held every April in Hannover, Germany. Both in the U.S. and internationally, Hannover Messe is the largest showcase of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 technologies and topics.

This year’s Integrated Industries Conference will spotlight industry experts from around the world. Many are exhibiting across our Hannover Messe USA trade shows, including Integrated Automation, Motion & Drives USA for integrated automation, industrial IT, drive, and control technology; as well as ComVac USA; Industrial Supply USA; and Surface Technology USA. Speakers will offer real time solutions to meet your manufacturing concerns and all topics will directly reflect solutions demonstrated on the Hannover Messe USA show floor.

The 2018 Integrated Industries Conference covers three major educational topic tracks: Motion, Drive, and Automation; IIoT/Industry 4.0; and Integrated Industries.

During the Motion, Drive, and Automation track, product managers from Siemens, Block, Hiwin, and Elmo Motion Control will present topics such as: How to reduce per-unit production cost with conditional monitoring and machine tool analytics; Synchronous PM linear motors applied to laser motion systems; Electronic circuit breaker, new vision of control; and the paradox of smart manufacturing.

As part of the Industrial Internet of Things/Industry 4.0 track, thought leaders from Sercos, Balluff, Rittal, and B&R will discuss topics such as: Industrial communication in the context of Industry 4.0 and IIoT; An introduction to smart manufacturing, IIoT, Industry 4.0 and why you should care; Looking at IIoT with the addition of artificial intelligence; and How the adaptive machine makes IIoT a practical reality.

During the Integrated Industries track, product engineers and senior executives from Kaeser Compressors, Bimba, and Acumatica/JAAS Systems will present topics such as: How to cut costs and improve productivity with your compressed air system; The role of intelligent connected devices in reducing down time; and Improving efficiency through a machine’s life cycle.

Combined with Hannover Messe USA, the 2018 Integrated Industries Conference offers a perfect platform to preview and discuss the most comprehensive demonstration of trending IIoT, Industry 4.0, and smart factory topics from around the globe. By attending, you will gain the necessary competitive advantages to help you thrive in today’s rapidly evolving manufacturing environment.

My entire team and I look forward to seeing you this September in Chicago.
