Anuga FoodTec 2021: Automation and Digitalization Are the Top Themes
Automation and digitalization are two interlinked technologies that make a significant contribution across the entire value chain. With its two new segments ‘Digitalization’ and ‘Automation’, Anuga FoodTec 2021 (March 23-26) is creating a compact platform for two of the industry’s top themes and will demonstrate how the digital transformation can be implemented today and in the future.
Automation is present in many places, but is by no means a fixed part of the food and beverage industry in every business. Innovative automation systems are useful for increasing revenue, improving productivity, minimizing safety risks, optimizing resource management or minimizing error rates or improving the capacity of machines and systems. At Anuga FoodTec 2021, many ‘Automation’ ideas and solutions will be covered in depth.
Thanks to digitalization, automated processes can be linked with each other. Accordingly, a multitude of companies, which supply the so-called OEMS, original equipment manufacturers with digitalization and automation solutions, will be exhibiting in the ‘Digitalization’ product segment. Blockchain, big data, Cloud services, Industry 4.0, RFID, cyber security, M2M communication, artificial intelligence, VR/AR, ‘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 digitalization are also themes that will be dealt with at Anuga FoodTec 2021. Hence, the visitors will be offered an extensive offer of complete solutions, as well as modular and cross-process elements from the digitalization and automation section of the food and beverage industry, and thus also a comprehensive insight into how the digital transformation can be realized in concrete terms. Atendees will be able to witness how processes can be interlinked even further, but also which challenges this involves and how they can be solved.
