IoT in Manufacturing Industry

Start Now for the Future of Manufacturing

Start Now for the Future of Manufacturing

Manufacturing is in the throes of change and the Internet of Things (IoT) is the technology that holds the key to coping with it. With solutions from the Internet of Things you will succeed in transforming your company from a manufacturer pure and simple into a service provider and manufacturer.

Find out the areas where we with our solutions can help you to digitize and how successful enterprises are already putting the IoT to good use. Let us help you to become even more successful in your business.

Recognize Challenges and Overcome Them Together

On their way to a smart factory and to becoming a manufacturing service provider manufacturers must overcome a wide range of challenges:

Man and woman analyze work processes in a factory
  • Products and services must win clients and make them enthusiastic in the long term.


  • Economic management of resources must boost productivity and efficiency and cut costs.



  • Optimized intralogistics and production processes should facilitate the best possible level of reliability.


  • Digital technologies are to protect and ease the burden on employees and to ensure swifter processes.

Our Solutions for Your Success

The following use cases will show you how our IoT solutions can support you in areas of crucial importance for your future success.

Improve Product and Service Experiences


  • Digital Service: When companies digitize their value creation they can optimize what they offer their customers, such as by being able to respond faster and more individually to customers’ wishes thanks to connected products. We provide both the hardware and the connectivity that are required.


  • Product-as-a-Service: Our IoT solutions enable companies to offer not only products but also products as a service. Precise and transparent acquisition of usage data, for example, facilitates pay-per-use models. That enables companies to expand their portfolio and deal with customers’ needs more specifically.

Enhance Efficiency


  • Monitoring: We connect machines and enable interoperability and production twins, thereby making machine monitoring, optimal status monitoring and smart production processes possible. Initiate maintenance at an early stage, monitor your entire production line and ensure seamless processes.


  • Positioning: Smart tracking solutions enable you to keep track of goods and raw materials from incoming goods inspection and stock management to the finished product. Our IoT offerings optimize intralogistics and facilitate indoor navigation, including autonomous transportation systems.


  • Digital Twin: Recognize problems and solve them before they occur by means of anomaly detection. Test new processes virtually in order to implement them optimally. Do it by using a real object’s digital twin. That’s how Industry 4.0’s Smart Factory of tomorrow helps prevent misinvestments and outages.

Manage Resources Sustainably


  • Resource & Energy Management: Be it by means of smart sensors that facilitate condition monitoring and help improve the energy efficiency in buildings or of remote monitoring that saves employees time during maintenance, with our IoT solutions you will deploy resources and energy optimally.


  • E-Charging: Electromobility on your production site will give your sustainability a boost. Charging points enable you to use eco-friendly electric vehicles. M2M communication between charging points and the cloud ensure constant energy monitoring and transparent power consumption.

Workforce Enablement


  • Pick-by Order Picking: From Pick-by-Vision to Pick-by-Voice and beyond, smart Pick-by methods provide employees – and not just in logistics – with all the important information they need at the point of use. Our technology helps to make processes simpler for people so they can cope with growing complexity and increasing speed.


  • Guided Workers: Our solutions can assist employees in the Smart Factory, and not just with order picking. Using connected smart systems, for example, they receive all key information on-screen during production, enabling them to perform work steps swiftly and in an ideal way.
