Winner in the "Smart Factory" category: Rittal GmbH

Rittal GmbH impressed the jury of the INDUSTRIE 4.0 AWARD 2022 with its end-to-end digitized and highly automated process chain from order entry, through production, to delivery to the customer. The manufacturer of enclosure systems, cooling devices and edge data center products has networked around 300 employees and 250 machines across all production lines at its site in Haiger. The data thus obtained flows into digital twins for the products, plants and production, thereby increasing transparency along the entire process chain.

AI software analyzes the performance of more than 8,000 enclosures in practical use and uses this data to select the right components for developing new products. In addition, the AI independently recommends to customers when they should recycle in order to match internal demand and supply.
