Industry 4.0 finds increasing application in production

Digitalisation is the key to networked, flexible production of the future.

The implementation of Industry 4.0 is an ongoing process that involves challenges, but also offers great potential for the automation industry – Festo recognised this at an early stage. The key elements of industrial digitalisation are the individual components, which communicate with each other within the overall system and can control and regulate themselves. The tasks of the human employee are also changing from merely operating machines to solving complex problems. In shaping the production of the future, Festo is therefore strategically concentrating on a triad comprising new technologies, state-of-the-art training and further education, and the human at the focus of attention.

With Industry 4.0, Festo is adopting an integrated approach to factory and process automation that takes into account technologies, the human operator and education to an equal extent.
