The fourth industrial revolution – better known under the name Industry 4.0 – poses major challenges to German mechanical and plant engineers. The adjustments required in corporate processes appear to be an insurmountable hurdle in the path towards digitisation, especially in the case of smaller and medium-sized enterprises. José Quero, Managing Director of LQ Mechatronik-Systeme GmbH, has worked in the industry for more than 20 years and has a positive view of the approaching change. He considers that modular automation platforms, in particular, offer tremendous potential. In his view, only those who pay sufficient attention to developing and investing in this and also create the appropriate underlying conditions will remain competitive in the long term.
Any company that wishes to be classed as a systems supplier must meet high requirements. LQ can be classed as such a specialist. From 24 to 26 November mechatronics experts will demonstrate modularisation as the future of mechanical and plant process engineering at SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg, the international trade show for electrical automation.
At the International Automation Show (IAS) in Shanghai, the LQ Group will be on stand A026 in Hall 5.1, where it will be presenting its high-performance solutions and products in control and installation technology. One of the highlights will be the M15 Power, currently the most powerful cable assembly for its size on the market.
