tec.News - Where tomorrow grows

How China pushes for progress

Rapid progress in digitalisation, automation and robotisation has shaped the Chinese Industrial sector as it stands today. Moving ahead, China embraces break-through innovations to foster high-quality growth and focuses on energy efficiency and a Green-economy to transform society into a more sustainable one. I am very proud that HARTING, being an active participant in this process, is enabling our partners along their journey with our connectivity solutions and thereby contributing to their success.

tec.News - Discover new possibilities

About the spirit of innovation

We are all allowed to travel again! Taking this as my cue, I would like to invite you most cordially to to join us on a journey around the world as part of a trilogy series starting with this issue. Our first stop is the United States of America – a country that, like no other, has stood for fascination, new beginnings and unlimited possibilities. The country under the current adminstration is committed to driving economic growth forward out of the pandemic and establishing a strong, acknowledged and respected profile on the world stage – a veritable dawning of new times!

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

Connectivity is what counts.

The future needs connectivity: Even seemingly wireless future technologies like 5G are not possible without connectivity. This is why we are constantly rethinking and redeveloping connectors, thus creating a strong connection between today and tomorrow.

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 - Ingeniously 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.

tec.News - special

InnoTrans 2018 issue

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.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.
