Pump Industry in Transition to Digitization - A Retrospect of ACHEMA 2018
In the pump industry, digitization was the dominant trend at this year's ACHEMA. Thereby, optimizations, e.g., in diagnosis and state recognition of the operating behavior or in process control can be achieved. Cloud applications and machine learning are also current topics. On the other hand, there were also pump suppliers who focus on the core of the conventional centrifugal pump and aim at improvements such as expanding the range of performance and increasing availability.
