Automation as the winner of the pandemic crisis?
The coronavirus pandemic has changed supply chains, workflows and production processes. New technologies are helping the industry to adapt to this change in a sustainable way. These include automation, robotics and digitization. They are important elements for a robust and resilient industry. "Hannover Messe is a key driver for the time after the coronavirus pandemic. Robotics and automation are key here, as are digital concepts. KUKA is a pioneer in industrial automation, and Hannover Messe, as a digital format, also offers us the right platform for products, solutions and innovations related to the digitalized and sustainable production of the future," says Wilfried Eberhardt, Chief Marketing Officer at KUKA. With this year's partner country Indonesia, Hannover Messe is focusing on a region that is developing very dynamically, particularly in the field of automation. For example, KUKA subsidiary Swisslog has already implemented several logistics projects for the Asian e-commerce giant Lazada.
