The railway industry produces rolling stock, arranges the supply of equipment and infrastructure, and provides modern services. Railways are currently enjoying a worldwide renaissance, both in high-speed traffic and as the backbone of urban transport systems.
The machine building industry develops and produces key technologies for the global market. It is one of the drivers of technology and covers a wide range of sectors. Industry 4.0 offers new ways of developing a competitive edge founded on innovative ICT-based output.
Agricultural technology forms the foundation for supplying the population with food. Automation, networking, data management, electrification and growth in the size of the machinery are trends with a view to increasing efficiency on the land. Everyone is talking about smart farming.
High quality and a wide range of products are the distinguishing features of the food industry. Increases in output are necessary for an adequate food supply, but production techniques must be both environmentally and socially responsible and humane to animals. Sustainability has therefore become a key competitive factor.
Energy & environment
The energy sector has undergone a radical upheaval in recent years. Climate change and environmental protection have established their centrality in this field. The “classic” issues, such as energy security and energy supply, are therefore increasingly sharing the focus with the subject of energy efficiency of buildings and products.
Wood is a material which is particularly prevalent in the paper, pulp, derived timber products and sawmill industries but which is also used in energy production. Complex furniture production lines and systems are developed for processing in addition to standard machines.
