tec.news - Time to answer the call

Future Technologies - The next Generation

The focus of this issue is on the future-oriented topics of “Transportation” and “Industrial Communication” which in turn derive from the megatrends we have previously looked at. They form a common thread running through the newly designed sections of our magazine: We start with a strategic editorial before handing over to our guest authors who will address these issues under the banner of “Future Trends” and shed their own particular light on them.

tec.News - Future Technology

Was zählt, sind die Verbindungen.

Zukunft braucht Verbindungen: Auch scheinbar drahtlose Zukunftstechnologien wie 5G kommen nicht ohne Connectivity aus. Darum denken wir Steckverbinder konsequent neu. Und schaffen so eine starke Verbindung zwischen heute und morgen.

tec.News - Industrial Transformation

How industry keeps reinventing itself.

The ongoing industrial transformation is having a direct impact on the development of connectors – and here, too, we can draw on extensive, in-depth know-how in order to be prepared for this future.

tec.News - Time to set new standards

Shaping the future with new standards

This era of Integrated Industry is seeing the industrial sector transition towards open standards. These enable others to participate and at the same time mutually support one another in partnership.

tec.News - Ingenioulsy normal?

How artificial intelligence will change integrated industry.

Whether it’s the media-attention gathering victory of chess computer Deep Blue against former world champion Gary Kasparov or the everyday use of navigation systems and language assistants, today, we encounter Artificial Intelligence (AI) at every turn. AI is considered the key driving force behind the Digital Revolution.

tec.News - Now is the time for strong connections...

… with connectivity solutions between Edge and Cloud.

The influence of flexible and convertible production characterises our connectors as well: here, the MICA® can be seen as an Edge Device that brings OT (Operational Technology) to the internet and into the Cloud on the basis of IT software concepts. Read about Edge Devices as an I4.0 key or about the digital integration of machinery as we’ve implemented it in practice within the HARTING Technology Group.

InnoTrans 2018 issue - Innovative rail solutions from HARTING.

Rail vehicles move people, goods and products – quickly and safely, and over long distances. Rail transport has a future. Rail networks are being expanded all over the world, and investments are being committed in terms of equipment, comfort and safety, as well as in more and more entertainment and information offerings for trains. The reason? Customers are demanding more and more.

Specific benefits arise only through applications – and these are tailor-made in each and every train. In addition to the classic connectivity solutions, smart solutions are becoming increasingly important.

This special edition of tec.news for the railway sector endeavors to provide impulses for innovative connectivity in applications, thereby generating ideas for solutions that we’re looking to create together with you.

tec.News - Our most important co-creator

The customer becomes a co-creator.

In the age of Industrie 4.0, what are the technologies that can be deployed to undertake an innovative Customer Journey? Via digitisation tools, the customer literally becomes a "co-creator" on the way to his or her own solution. We investigate the question surrounding the realisation of tailor-made interfaces in a 5-step model and use this model to show the services HARTING offers its customers in the context of digitisation.

tec.News - Partnering in Integrated Industry

No one can do everything

The fourth industrial revolution can already be summed up as follows today: complex value-added networks are no longer viable with monolithic architectures. An all-encompassing solution is needed. But no one can do everything on their own. And, in my opinion, this recognition of one's own limits harbours a great opportunity, founded upon the cultural change of Industrie 4.0.

tec.News - The Value-Added Network

Delivering customer solutions with high customer value is what we do

If you ask companies what their goal is, the answer is first and foremost: creating value for customers – naturally, while being as profitable as possible for the company. In many cases, however, this is merely given lip service, as the opposite is usually more correct: being profitable and thereby creating value for customers. In any case, this statement is actually not so bad.
