IndustryFusion: The new standard of digitalization

With the help of the open source networking solution IndustryFusion, manufacturing operators can raise their production as well as machine and plant builders their products to a new level of efficiency. At the EuroBLECH 2022 trade fair (October 25-28, Hannover), the Foundation, in cooperation with Intel and SUSE, will demonstrate how IndustryFusion makes the great potentials of Industry 4.0 available to as many users as possible. The central trade fair message: "IndustryFusion: The new standard of digitalization".

Founded in 2020, the IndustryFusion Foundation is based on many years of close collaboration between mechanical and plant engineers, component manufacturers, software developers and representatives from science and politics in the Industry Business Network 4.0 e.V. association. For the first time, the Foundation is now presenting use cases based on the cross-manufacturer open-source IndustryFusion solution for the intelligent networking of plants in an industrial manufacturing environment at its trade fair stand at EuroBLECH. In the future, this will also enable small and medium-sized enterprises to benefit from increasing digitization.

Focus on digital business models and B2B platform solutions

The open source IIoT networking solution IndustryFusion sets the new standard that enables companies of all sizes to digitize products and manufacturing efficiently and in a resource-saving manner. IndustryFusion can be used vendor-independently for networking smart factories and smart products. A unique digital infrastructure ensures a continuous data flow from the plant via the edge to the cloud and thus provides the basis for the development of innovative digital business models and B2B platforms - especially in the areas of predictive maintenance, AI and machine learning, equipment-as-a-service (EaaS) as well as resources and production sharing.

Always in focus from the start: tangible and relevant added value

From medium-sized companies for medium-sized companies: IndustryFusion is backed by a growing network of innovative medium-sized machine and plant manufacturers who, together with software developers and renowned technology companies such as Intel and SUSE, have made it their goal to make the advantages of digitized products and networked manufacturing accessible to small and medium-sized companies in particular. From the very beginning, the focus has always been on tangible and relevant added value for users, which together allow them to maximize the efficiency and profitability of manufacturing. "In this way, IndustryFusion will make a decisive contribution in the future to maintaining Europe's sovereignty and competitiveness in the digital age," says Igor Mikulina, President of the IndustryFusion Foundation. "With our presence at EuroBLECH, we want to target all those who want to future-proof their company and actively join us."
