Franz Enhuber, Dean of the Baccarat School of Automation, delivered a keynote speech titled “Precision Automation, Promoting High Quality Development of the Manufacturing Industry”. He stated that digitization encompasses the transformation of manufacturing and automation at all levels, achieving precise and automated production, including microsecond level time precision, repetitive positioning and process control, predictive maintenance mechanisms, etc;

At the same time, in Industry 4.0, open-loop control will shift to closed-loop control and require the establishment of a data link from sensors/actuators to the cloud. The Industrial Internet of Things and digital factories also have higher demands for expanding computing power and storage. In the process of rapidly advancing the manufacturing industry to Industry 4.0, digitization has become an inevitable trend, and we must become a member of it.
