ADAMOS IIoT platform is growing: five further mechanical engineering firms have joined

Bietigheim-Bissingen, January 23, 2019 – The ADAMOS software platform for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is being used by an increasing number of mechanical engineering firms. Most recently, another five reputable companies have joined the ADAMOS network. Among them are the mechanical engineering firms Oerlikon Textile (textile machines), Weber Maschinenbau (food packaging machines), ILLIG Maschinenbau (thermoforming, packaging technology) and Mahr (production metrology).

ADAMOS is a manufacturer-neutral IIoT software platform, specifically tailored to the mechanical engineering sector and its customers. It offers simple and flexible digitization of production to users of machines and manufacturing facilities. The ADAMOS platform can be used to interconnect machines, enabling them to exchange information via the Internet. By means of data generated through ADAMOS, users are able to utilize digital services and thus increase their production efficiency. Examples include apps for predictive maintenance and for maximizing machine utilization.

Ralf W. Dieter, CEO of Dürr AG and Chairman of the ADAMOS Advisory Council, says: “Digitization is the most important trend in industrial production. German mechanical engineering firms can benefit from this trend by pooling their skills and resources. And this is exactly what we are doing with ADAMOS: this platform stands for cooperation and efficient IIoT solutions for our industry.”

ADAMOS was founded in 2017 by the mechanical engineering firms DMG MORI, Dürr, Zeiss and ASM PT, together with Software AG. Software AG, enabling partner and Germany’s second largest software house, provides central software modules for the platform. The ADAMOS network currently consists of 12 companies, which cooperate closely to develop apps and digital business models.

According to the CEO of ADAMOS, Dr. Marco Link, “we see ADAMOS as a community of like-minded partners, who regularly share information on certain topics to identify and implement new business models in the mechanical and plant engineering sector”.
