The topic of digitalization has finally claimed a top spot on the agenda of the process industry. The new exhibition group "Digital Hub" contributes to this: It is the central meeting point for digital experts and all participants interested in or actively involved in the digital transformation of the process industry. The exhibition area with a central stage puts digital showcases of the process industry in the spotlight and offers the latest insights from experts and solution providers and facilitates future-oriented discussions.
For the digital laboratory
A total of six use cases for the connected and digitalized laboratory will be presented at the Digital Lab Action Area – the smart lab of tomorrow to experience, touch and try out. Equipment and software manufacturers will demonstrate cross-manufacturer digitalization solutions using relevant practical examples. The spectrum ranges from Cobot-assisted work processes for sample preparation and analysis, user-oriented process control with Laboratory Execution Systems, to horizontally and vertically connected yet modularly adaptable equipment solutions with the perspective of shared laboratory infrastructure and seamless integration between sample input and quality-assured analysis results. Innovative software and device solutions are supported by the Laboratory & Analytical Device Standard (LADS) for OPC UA.
„Digitalisation, sustainability, security of supply – the challenges ahead are enormous and can only be overcome together and across sectors”, says Thomas Scheuring. “Let us therefore use ACHEMA in August 2022 as the world’s only comprehensive showcase of the latest technology trends in our industry to find and tackle solutions together.”
