In their search for new digital sales channels, many innovative companies in the window industry have started to set up webshops such as A+W iQuote for mobile online ordering. This new selling mode means maximum flexibility, mobility and time savings for the customer.
Industry 4.0 is celebrating its birthday: the term first appeared at the Hannover Messe in 2011. But already in 2008, A+W had implemented a highly automated production environment with automatic sorting in cutting and robotic packaging at the end of the IG- line.
Under the umbrella of the VDMA, we, A+W Software GmbH, are now also part of the umati community. Together we develop standardized cross-company interfaces so that machine communication between heterogeneous plants as well as to higher-level systems becomes fit for the future.
