The electronics company Weidmüller Interface GmbH & Co. KG and the expert for industrial automation Keba are now collaborating to complement each other's digitalisation and automation portfolios. The collaboration focuses on shared offers for industrial automation technology with a focus on the area of machinery and plant engineering. Both companies also want to promote the utilisation of artificial intelligence (AI) in automation.

With the cooperation, Weidmüller with its headquarters in Detmold, Germany, and Keba based in Linz, Austria, are striving for a coordinated representation at the customer with a focus on the area of machinery and plant engineering in their respective markets. In so doing, the partners will mutually provide relevant components of their portfolios to each other.

Keba will mainly contribute its open software solutions and parts of its control architecture, while Weidmüller will primarily contribute its u-mation product family expanded for SPS 2018 and its innovative industrial analytics offerings to the collaboration. Both companies rely on a close collaboration to further develop the product, solution and service offerings.

One Plus One Will equal More than Two

"We are happy to have found an experienced partner in industrial automation with Keba who will help to complement our automation expertise. Combining u-control and the Keba Engineering Suite ideally supports our customers with the implementation of ambitious automation concepts and Industry 4.0 solutions," explains Volker Bibelhausen, CTO of the Weidmüller Group. Michael Matthesius, Head of the Automation Products & Solutions division at Weidmüller sees this the same way: "When two excellent companies like Weidmüller and Keba cooperate, our customers can be sure that one plus one will equal more than two in this case."

Gerhard Luftensteiner, CEO of Keba adds: "We are convinced that our product and service offerings for industrial customers complement each other ideally. From now on, customers looking for excellent digitalisation and automation solutions for Industry 4.0 will benefit from our combined expertise."
