Hannover Messe will dedicate much of its showcase to artificial intelligence in manufacturing at this year’s event on 17-21 April.
The tradeshow will offer guided tours, dedicated discussion formats and company exhibits featuring AI tools and use cases, while highlighting other areas of AI such as process optimisation, simulation, product development and generative AI.
According to the event organisers, the main challenge of industrial AI projects lies in integration with a plant, cell or production line. Hannover Messe will act as a networking hub, enabling AI developers and software engineers to meet with users and develop industrial-grade AI products or processes.
On day 2 of the show, software firm Monolith AI will present its solution for simulation in mechanical engineering as part of the Industrial AI event in Hall 3. The company’s solution makes suggestions to developers about their products, based on real-time data. At the same event, machine manufacturer Hawe Hydraulik will report on how it is using reinforcement learning and implementing the technology in its processes.
Also at the event, automation technology provider Festo will highlight its work in generative AI for product development. It will also showcase its collaborative robot (or cobot), which is intended for direct interaction with humans.
Visitors will find a range of AI tools and use cases on the tradeshow floor. For example, Omron will present a Cell-Line Control System, which supports efficient, high-quality production, while Beckhoff will demonstrate its vision solutions. In addition, Dürr will feature its DXQanalyze product family, which logs process data to identify possible product defects or equipment wear in real-time.
