Weidmüller – the name stands for competence, audacity, performance, pioneering spirit and reliability since 1850. As a pioneer of Industrial Connectivity, we have written industrial history with our innovations. We set standards with the production and sale of the first plastic-insulated terminal block. This was followed by the PUSH IN connection system, the invention of the first PCB connection terminal and most recently the development of an Automated Machine Learning Tool. And that's not all: For 170 years, we have been developing pioneering innovations that have shaped an entire industry. Easy to install, flexible to use and designed for efficient processes.
We move forward with audacity and tackle the industry challenges. Whether artificial intelligence, 5G, Industrial IoT or the Smart Factory – our employees focus on important future fields and research innovative products and solutions that are used all around the world. Usually we would have presented these products and solutions at the Hannover Messe. We feel at home as an "industrial pioneer".
Our Chief Technology Officer would like to welcome you to our digital experience in place of the Hannover Messe, and give you an overview of our highlight topics.
Discover our highlights at our virtual fair world. Immerse yourself in Weidmüller's digital fair world and learn more about the topics Smart Factory, solutions for the shop floor, end-to-end connections and interfaces, charging infrastructure for electromobility and exciting product innovations.
In addition to our digital trade fair experience, we would also like to invite you to dive deeper into individual topics and to get in touch with our experts. For this purpose, we have put together a comprehensive webinar offer for the next three months.
We help industrial companies identify individual potential for Industrial IoT applications and develop needs-based solutions for the Smart Factory. With our pioneering solution in the area of Automated Machine Learning, our u-mation portfolio, smart sensors and further innovative products for the Smart Factory, you can acquire, understand and use data and leverage new potential, for instance. As a pioneer of Industrial Connectivity, our solutions enable us to enter new future markets.
For more than 40 years, we have been developing solutions that are perfectly aligned with each work phase in production and in the workshop. As a pioneer of Industrial Connectivity and through our many years of practical experience, we offer a complete portfolio of solutions and services for automated panel building as well as workshops, enabling the optimization of processes on the shop floor and in the production.
Whether circular connectors for signal processing between the sensor and the control, heavy-duty connectors, Single Pair Ethernet or non-contact energy transfer – we develop sophisticated products that drive industry forward reliably and sustainably. This means we are paving the way for efficient electrical connectivity. For us, demonstrating pioneering spirit is not an end in itself. We always strive to move forward and to write history.
With our 170-year history, we can look back on a long tradition dating back to the year 1850, when Weidmüller was founded as a textile company. The move to the technology sector came around 100 years later. The big leap finally began with the reinvention and production of the first plastic-insulated terminal block. Since then, Weidmüller has been a constant player in the industry and technology sector. And we have continually evolved and introduced new innovations. In 2020, we are celebrating the 170-year anniversary of our company. This is why we were particularly looking forward to this year's Hannover Messe, where we would have once more shown you how we have evolved – into a provider of Industrial IoT solutions.
We would have presented a range of new products to you at Hannover Messe of course. Get an overview of the product innovations here.
