Systems & Components at Agritechnica is all about connections

Special show dedicated to Systems & Components returns to Agritechnica for the third time – Presents the perfect opportunity for machinery manufacturers to meet systems suppliers – Theme for 2017 is “Stay Connected”, promoting connections between systems, companies and people.

Frankfurt am Main, Germany, 24th February 2017 - The majority of visitors to Agritechnica go to see the trade stands full of farm machinery that’s been developed to make their businesses run more smoothly and efficiently, but a growing number of industry professionals are now attending to meet the suppliers who manufacture the systems that create today’s agricultural machines.
Taking place from 12 to 18 November as a sub-brand of Agritechnica 2017, Systems & Components provides visitors with an opportunity to see the latest systems, modules, components and accessories of interest for those working in agricultural engineering and related industries.
The exhibiting companies are industry leaders, established mid-size companies and start-ups from the following sectors: engines, drive systems, hydraulics, cabins, electronics, and spare and wear parts – as well as the corresponding software that manages today’s machines.
The special show also tackles other issues of industrial engineering including supply chain management, flexible manufacturing, individual production, intelligent maintenance management, networked production, self-organized adaptive logistics and customer integrated engineering.
Raffaele Talarico of DLG Italia, a subsidiary of Agritechnica’s organizer DLG, is responsible for the concept and technical program of Systems & Components, a specialized show within Agritechnica. First held in 2013, it is an international platform for highlighting the latest developments in transmissions, engines, hydraulics and electronics for agricultural machinery and related industries, and in 2015 it attracted more than 100,000 professional visitors from engineering, management, R&D, procurement, research and academia.
A strong driver of innovation
If the previous Systems & Components shows are any indication, the supply industry will once again present itself as a strong driver of innovation and a solution provider for agricultural machinery.
Machinery from the sector, and the components used to manufacture it, is now highly complex, and the optimal design and coordination of mechanical, hydraulic and electro-mechanical components and their connection plays an essential role in the engineering of machines.
Systems & Components teaches how a universal approach in agriculture increasingly requires a close exchange between everyone involved in the value chain.
The importance of staying connected
This approach takes a further step this year as Systems & Components 2017 focusses on the interaction between systems in agricultural machinery. “Today’s extremely complex machines demand a large number of synchronized mechanical, hydraulic, electric and electronic components. This requires ‘connectivity’, not just of components, but also between humans and companies,” says Raffaele Talarico, project manager of Systems and Components.
As part of Agritechnica – the world’s number one platform for agricultural machinery with 98,000 international visitors from 115 countries and more than 452,000 visitors in total – Systems & Components offers the possibility to bring people and knowledge together from around the world.
A visitor survey from Agritechnica 2015 showed the interests in the different sections within Systems & Components as:
Engines and related components, 35%;
Axles, transmissions and related components, 29%;
Hydraulics and related components, 43%;
Electronics and related components, 37%;
Cabs and related components, 17%;
Spare and wear parts, 46%.
A comprehensive technical program
As well as the traditional displays within Systems & Components, the show will also be about sharing expertise during seven days of expert dialogue through more than 30 English-speaking forums. These will address the most important issues affecting the industry.
And, of course, there will be the opportunity to establish new connections through Agritechnica’s cross-industry approach. There will be every opportunity to meet international professional visitors from management, R&D, procurement, research and academia, and to establish direct contact with farmers and contractors.
Editor’s notes:
Systems & Components is a special feature of Agritechnica 2017, which takes place from 12-18 November at Hanover’s Exhibition Grounds. The feature offers suppliers an international professional platform to present systems, modules and components for the agricultural engineering industry and related industrial sectors.
