Industry 4.0: we have experience with the future

Digitalisation and intelligent networking make systems operate more flexibly, more efficiently and more reliably. Increase your productivity with the pioneering solutions for Industry 4.0.

KSB takes on the production of the future

The fourth industrial revolution entails a profound change in industrial value creation. With the advent of the Internet of Things and Services, the mechanical, electric and electronic transformation of industry is now being followed by comprehensive digital networking: Industry 4.0. This combines real-world production and digital processes to create cyber-physical systems. In the Industry 4.0 vision, these encompass the entire system and all processes – also referred to as a smart factory. KSB is your ideal partner on your way to Economy 4.0: because we have experience with the future. As a founding member of the technology initiative SmartFactoryKL, we offer you Industry 4.0 solutions of the future today – in the form of smart pump technologies.

The industrial revolution in its four phases

Optimum productivity thanks to smart networking

With Industry 4.0, we are entering an industrial revolution in productivity and flexibility: Industry 4.0 centres on the ability to adapt production quickly and efficiently in response to changing conditions and new orders – even for lot size 1. For this purpose, the systems of the future require maximum:

Resource efficiency and optimised use of materials

Availability and operating reliability

Flexibility through short-term reconfigurability

Reduction of time to market

To achieve this, individual processes and products have to communicate with each other decentrally and respond autonomously to changes in the system condition. With their digitalisation and networking capabilities, smart products and services from KSB provide the basis for Industry 4.0.

Smart pump technology from KSB

KSB offers a host of smart products and services designed to increase the productivity of your system. From the KSB Sonolyzer® mobile phone app, which uses motor noise to identify savings potential, through to the PumpMeter diagnostic system, they all have one thing in common: they supply information and provide functions in the form of the digital twin. A digital twin is the virtual image of a real object such as a smart pump. It enables networking in Industry 4.0, thereby maximising productivity. 

For the fourth industrial revolution, KSB networks products and services to create smart pump technology.
