The HARTING Technology Group and Expleo concluded a
cooperation agreement at the SPS Trade Fair 2019 in
Nuremberg. The agreement was signed by Philip Harting,
Chairman of the Board of the HARTING Technology Group, and
Peter Seidenschwang, Head of Industry at Expleo Germany GmbH.
It is a reaffirment of the long-term cooperation by the two
parties in the area of data-controlled services and IoT
solutions for industrial customers. HARTING is offering the
modular edge computing MICA®, which has been designed
according to industrial standards for multiple industrial
applications, and Expleo is contributing its know-how in
connectivity and data-scientific competence.
The joint memorandum of understanding by the management of
both companies is the culmination of many years of
successful cooperation in MICA.network, the user
organisation supporting HARTING’s edge computing system MICA®.
Expleo has been involved in the network since 2016, working
on the development of a solution for the process and
operational optimisation of machines and production systems.
On the basis of compiled data, the SmartANIMO application
from Expleo can independently learn the standard behaviour
of connected production lines and individual machines and
use this know-how to identify deviations in the process
without manual interventions. Detecting any upcoming
problems at an early stage means that the overall efficiency
of the system can be improved with a focus on predictive
quality or predictive maintenance. The robustness and
flexibility of MICA® also enables Expleo to implement the
solution in industrial environments and to retrofit existing
production systems non-invasive.
