itelligence and HARTING agree to technology and development partnership
Signed at itelligence World 2018 | Heading towards networked digitalized production | Improved cost control
"We employ digitalization to generate value-added for customers, relying on intelligent partnerships such as the one with itelligence AG," says Philip Harting, Chairman of the Board of the family-owned and managed HARTING Technology Group. No wonder – the HARTING claim has been 'People – Power – Partnership' for many years now. HARTING goes digital wherever it's possible and makes sense.
"We are pleased with our close partnership with HARTING – an acknowledged technology partner for digitalization solutions in the Industrial IoT environment. Through our joint efforts, we are able to offer an integrated solution for classic networked Industry 4.0 and IoT scenarios," underlines Norbert Rotter, Chairman of the Board of itelligence AG. "Our pilot project for the confectionary manufacturer Cavendish & Harvey is designed not only to provide greater transparency in production, but also improve the control of manufacturing costs."
Heading towards networked digitalized production
The project was developed at the Center for Connected Industry at the FIR, a research and teaching institution at RWTH Aachen University. The brief from Cavendish & Harvey is for tracking containers, boxes, and pallets in production automatically with sensors – a significant step towards networked, digitalized production. Things become mobile, containers "learn how to think", automatically reporting the filling level and status to the system. The whole scenario will be highly automated with SAP processes in production and extended in Warehousing with innovative solutions from HARTING (MICA® Edge Computer), itelligence (it.x-connect)
Going digital wherever it's possible and makes sense
There are barriers to the progress of digitalization. Philip Harting points to country-specific regulations in Europe, new cybersecurity laws in China and burgeoning protectionism and nationalism in global trade, saying: "These disruptive influences are encouraging us to work even more closely with our customers and partners."
HARTING is making MICA® available as the hardware platform for this joint development partnership with itelligence. This makes it a quick and easy process to complete digitalization projects for equipment and machines. Work is conducted via the HARTING MICA.network – a community for IoT and Industry 4.0. The MICA.network is the user community around the MICA® Open Computing Platform. MICA.network partners like itelligence develop innovative concepts and solutions here, enabling companies to co-design the digitalization and networking of processes and things.
Transparency in Production, improved cost control
For an initial pilot project, itelligence developed a solution for tracking assets – such as containers, pallets and stacker and weight detection via HARTING MICA®. An existing itelligence product component was ported to MICA and extended with future-proof IoT functionality. The basis is RFID technology – but further developments may draw on other transmitter-
Under the banner of "IT meets Business – The Perfect Symbiosis!", itelligence World provides attendees with the essentials of digitalization. This IT conference, trade fair, expert workshop, and networking event all in one started at 9 a.m. at the Conference Center at itelligence AG, Königsbreede 1, in Bielefeld on 12 September.
