Digitalization Competence Center


Your digitalization partner

We support you in the digitalization of engineering, production, and business processes in the industrial environment. Our HEITEC 4.0 solution portfolio helps you increase the availability and productivity of machines and plants throughout their entire lifecycle, thanks to the gradual, benefit-oriented implementation of Industry 4.0.

We not only boost productivity, we also create many options for you to successfully implement new business models like digital services with the aid of innovative solutions.

The right solution for every step along the way

HEITEC offers comprehensive, customized solutions ranging from consulting and implementation to plant operation and service.

Digitalization with HEITEC

The “carousel of digitalization”

Benefit from the potential of the digital environment

Digitally mapping real machines in virtual models can significantly support the engineering process and commissioning. These virtual models can be used to test the functionality and behavior of automation concepts over time and to optimize process sequences even before the real plants and machines exist.

Maximize your roll-out quality

These models can be used to simulate all conceivable plant conditions, failures, and errors in a virtual scenario. The result is a substantially higher software roll-out quality for automation and drive solutions, reduced project risks, and better adherence to schedules. Parallel development processes can also significantly shorten the project duration.

Increased availability through parallel processes

Using the digital twin to perform analyses and optimizations – for example, sequence and recipe optimization, testing of product changeovers, and analysis of problematic and special situations during ongoing operation – creates brand-new possibilities, including operator training on the digital twin, integration of real plant controllers to avoid collisions, and training of modern algorithms.
