Espelkamp / Foshan, 24.10.2018 (PresseBox) – The HARTING Technology Group is making China’s production fit for Industrie 4.0. This was evident to the participants of a multi-day delegation trip (October 22-24, 2018). The trip was organised by the German Electrical and Electronic Industry ZVEI with partners such as the Robotation Academy Foshan, Foshan Sino-German Industrial Services Zone and Internet Expo.
The programme included company tours at FAW-Volkswagen Foshan and Midea Group Foshan. „The city of Foshan in Guangdong Province is one of the leading industrial centres in China. We’d like to help shape this dynamic development there,“ says Bernd Fischer, General Manager of Corporate Regional Management at HARTING. „Smart manufacturing has ramped up quickly in China. The digitisation of processes is becoming increasingly important here as well. HARTING can help manufacturing companies to monitor and visualise manufacturing processes,“ explains Dr. Ellen McMillan, General Manager Greater China at HARTING Technology Group.
The HARTING MICA® (Modular Industry Computing Architecture) is well-suited for this purpose. The MICA® makes it possible to store, evaluate and process data directly within application environments and can be configured with individual hardware, freely available software and associated interfaces – wholly in line with the customer’s individual requirements. In the Robotation Academy Foshan, participants in advanced training courses will be introduced to where and how the MICA® can be used in industrial environments.
In a presentation, Uwe Gräff, Managing Director of HARTING Electric and HARTING IT Software Development, showed in the context of smart manufacturing how the Chinese market is influencing technological development worldwide. HARTING production plant in Zhuhai was also on the agenda for the visit. There, the HARTING Technology Group manufactures primarily Han-Modular® and Han® B connectors.
