HARTING has long been strategically focusing on the digitisation concept of Industry 4.0 and with it on the Smart Factory. With its connectivity products and the MICA®, this concept has long been part of everyday production at HARTING's customers. Consequently, it is only logical for the technology group to continue to push the use of artificial intelligence as a key technology in the future - within the company itself, but above all in product development for its customers.

Doable today, possible tomorrow

HARTING already uses artificial intelligence technologies in various configurators to improve results for individual connectivity solutions. AI also comes into play in the company’s own production as well as in its products, e.g. in order to ensure the quality of crimping machines.

In order for customers’ AI applications to become feasible in the first place, connectivity solutions such as the HARTING MICA® are used.

The future visions of the engineering team reach farther: robotics production systems, self-learning and semi-autonomous systems or predictive system maintenance – the AI playground at HARTING seems limitless.

“Automation is our classic topic. In the future, it will only be logical to tap into the enormous potential that AI opens up for us to continue researching and to develop specific customer solutions.”

Dr. Stephan Middelkamp, General Manager Quality Management
