“Smart – Sustainable – Safe”: that was the claim of LogiMAT 2022, the largest and leading intralogistics trade fair in Europe, located in Stuttgart, Germany. After a two-year pandemic break, 1,571 exhibitors from 39 countries spread a great mood of optimism over three days of the trade fair in front of more than 50,000 visitors. The focus was on current solutions, systems and devices for reliable automation and digital transformation – on an exhibition area of over 125,000 square meters in ten halls at the Stuttgart trade fair center. Numerous product premieres and world firsts provided significant impetus for efficient, future-proof intralogistics processes.
The following questions were in focus:
How should companies handle the raw material of the future – data – efficiently and securely?
How should the interfaces between skilled workers, production resources and intelligent robot assistants be defined in order to optimize workplaces?
How can virtual worlds cover the crucial scenarios that show concrete ways forward?
Right in the middle of this inspiring hustle and bustle: HK.SYSTEMS and ROBIOTIC! Together with the companies Solconia GmbH and INDUTRAX GmbH, they presented intelligent IoT solutions for smart logistics processes. A great example: Heiko Ehrmann from Würth Industrie Service GmbH presented the new “smart workplace” as the digital workplace of the future. HK.SYSTEMS developed and produces an important component for this: the iSCALE IoT scale. The system transmits the fill level of Kanban boxes and automatically triggers reorders. An absolute, global innovation for complete C-parts management!
After three days of LogiMAT, the highly motivated team around Sven Ehrmann, Christian Schiele and Thomas Krekeler looks back on all that is possible in such a concentrated way only at trade fairs: Intensive networking, promising discussions, new customer contacts and stimulating visits from current customers and partners such as Würth Industrie Service GmbH & Co. KG or Balluf GmbH.
Conclusion: Our presence at LogiMAT was a complete success! Next year we will be glad to be there again.
