ContiTech Sees Increasing Digitalization in the Industrial Sector as a Growth Opportunity
One of the distinguishing features of the fourth industrial revolution is the intelligent connectivity of production and maintenance processes. Key data is now being made available in real time on a global scale. “This is giving rise to a number of new business opportunities. Going forward, predictive maintenance – the anticipatory maintenance and repair of machinery and equipment – will be a key driver of growth and efficiency in a large number of the industries in which we operate,” adds Duensing. The Hannover Messe trade fair will see ContiTech unveil its permanently installable and digitally connected monitoring system for steel cord conveyor belts for the first time.
