As the leading international supplier trade fair of the food and beverage industry, with its two new segments “Automation” and “Digitalisation”, Anuga FoodTec 2021 (23 to 26 March, Cologne) is creating a compact platform for two of the industry’s top topics and will demonstrate how digital transformation can be implemented today and in the future. At the trade fair, many “Automation” ideas and solutions will be covered in a breadth and depth that is hitherto unknown. Thanks to digitalisation, automated processes can be linked with each other. Accordingly, in the “Digitalisation” product segment, a multitude of companies, which supply the OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) with digitalisation and automation solutions, will be exhibiting.
Blockchain, Big Data, Cloud services, Industry 4.0, RFID, cyber security, M2M communication, artificial intelligence, VR/AR and “digital twins” are just a few of the many examples that will be shown in action at Anuga FoodTec. Safety and legal challenges that go hand in hand with an increased digitalisation are also topics that will be dealt with. Hence, the visitors will be offered an extensive offer of complete solutions as well as modular and cross-process elements from the digitalisation and automation section of the food and beverage industry. Thus, they get a comprehensive insight into how digital transformation can be realised in concrete terms, how processes can be interlinked even further, but also which challenges it involves and how these can be solved.
In accordance with the high relevance of the topics within the industry, the event programme of Anuga FoodTec 2021 also addresses topics that go hand in hand with digitalisation and automation. Among others, lectures on “Digital Factory”, “SmartTec 4Food” and “Integrating existing machines” are planned.
