Dear Readers,

Production processes are digitally controlled, machines are networked and predict the need for maintenance, commissioning and training take place in a virtual space – at Dürr, Industry 4.0 is no longer a vision. At our tenth "Open House" innovation show under the "digital@DÜRR" banner, we demonstrated how far Dürr has come on its way towards digitization and connectivity of painting processes.

We have been using digital processes for your benefit for a number of years. And we are developing smart products, smart services and smart factories to help you increase your efficiency.

Around 1,200 international visitors from the automotive and other industries experienced this first-hand at the "Open House" event at our Bietigheim-Bissingen headquarters. The latest Dürr News contains more information on some of the highlights from our innovation show.

Best wishes
Ralf W. Dieter,  CEO of Dürr AG
