This year’s theme at Hannover Messe was, ‘Digital Enterprise – Implement Now’. Under this, Siemens provided a comprehensive overview of its extensive portfolio to effectively demonstrate how companies of different sizes and sectors of industry can improve their competitiveness with digitalisation solutions.

As part of this, Siemens unveiled a number of new product solutions and future concepts at the 2018 Hannover Messe.  They included:
