Implement Industry 4.0 together

We are a strong network of innovative companies. Together we implement Industry 4.0 openly and manufacturer-independently with added value for all parties involved.

Welcome to the Industry Business Network 4.0 e.V.

We create the networks for the digital transformation of the industry! The Industry Business Network 4.0 was founded in 2016 as an association of innovative medium-sized companies to jointly introduce Industry 4.0 in our production facilities and to offer our customers fully networkable products.

We are convinced that only open, multi-vendor solutions can offer the added value of digitalization. That is why we are working together on IndustryFusion – the open source solution for networking in the Smart Factory.
If you would like to learn more about the possibilities in the association, please contact us!
