Progress in Motion

The next step in Automation Excellence

Digitalisation and sustainability are the focal points of the Hannover Messe 2022. The most important industrial trade fair worldwide creates a real incentive for the transformation of the economy and industry – towards digitised, climate-neutral and sustainable value creation. We look forward to welcoming you, our customers and partners, to this year’s trade fair. We promise to show you exciting topics, innovative solutions and engage in great discussions with you about increased productivity, energy efficiency and sustainability.

Dear Customers,

What is it that drives us? We want to make the automation of your application simpler, more reliable and at the same time more efficient. That is why we are passionate about developing suitable hardware, software, services and technologies at all our sites. At the Hannover Messe 2022 we will not just show you several of these products, but will also give you a brief overview of the topics that motivate us and that will be important for us this year.

As one of the leading companies in automation technology, we believe it is our duty to also lead the way on the topic of sustainability – both in our own production facilities and in all the different solutions for our customers. This may involve using low-energy piezo technology with all the opportunities this offers, or lightweight versions of our products or even Energy Saving Services. With the online CO2 & TCO guide users will find the right drive technology and can reduce their CO2 and total cost of ownership at the same time.

These are just some of the things you will be able to discover at the Hannover Messe 2022.
We look forward to seeing you and to having many interesting discussions!
