CONTACT Software Becomes Partner of Smart Electronic Factory

CONTACT Software reportedly is a new partner in the Smart Electronic Factory initiative. In this network, companies and research institutes develop solutions for Industry 4.0 and test them in a real electronics factory.

The SEF Smart Electronic Factory initiative develops sample solutions for Industry 4.0. The members of the non-profit association design new applications for intelligently networked production and validate them under real conditions. The practical tests are running in the electronics factory of Limtronik GmbH and at Lenze SE.

CONTACT Software is now contributing its work on digital twin, industrial analytics and product lifecycle management (PLM).

“The Smart Electronic Factory offers ideal conditions for closed-loop engineering,” said Ian Altmann, project engineer, Engineering Transformation Team, CONTACT. “Smart systems generate a lot of data that enables companies to draw concrete conclusions about product improvements.”

With the Smart Electronic Factory, AWS, Dürr, Limtronik, Lenze, Bosch Rexroth and many other partners have built up a networked machine park in which standards and solutions for Industry 4.0 are created. CONTACT Software reportedly will use this environment to enable a continuous innovation process based on its Elements platform. The Digital Twin Dashboard combines all data from a plant or machine and is the starting point for performance and product improvements through visual analysis of the relevant operating parameters.


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
