IBG Press Event at Hannover Messe

The IBG / Goeke Technology Group presented its innovative automation solutions under the motto of the Hannover Messe 2014 “Integrated Industry – NEXT STEPS”. The key phrases were “Industry 4.0” and “Smart Factory”. The IBG exhibition booth, with its conceptual theme “New Horizons in Automation” was selected for participation in the Highlight Tour. The visit to the booth by Germany’s President Angela Merkel was high praise for both the visionary, sustainable concept and the company’s firm commitment to future-oriented projects; during the President’s tour, Managing Partner Matthias Goeke gave her a detailed explanation of the latest innovation in the automation and electromobility industry.

The item in question is the iProcell – a flexible, fully automatic assembly cell for electric vehicles. This innovation is a further step along the road to “Industry 4.0” and underlines the relevance that decentralized production processes are expected to have in future. The electric car and its manufacturing process were demonstrated in an impressive live presentation at the exhibition booth, followed by comprehensive coverage by reporters from a wide variety of print, TV and online media channels.
