In cooperation with the VDMA Productronic Association—the conceptual and technical sponsor of productronica—Messe München is planning a program of lectures and a special show in Hall B2, Booth 448.

Three VDMA co-exhibitors will provide live demonstrations on the trend topics of sensors in electronics manufacturing, second-generation quantum technologies and power electronics.


A current application of sensor technology in electronics manufacturing, the Smart Reordering System based on battery-powered and wirelessly networked sensors, will be presented by Balluff.

The globally represented sensor and automation specialist Balluff, based in Neuhausen auf den Fildern near Stuttgart, sees itself as an innovation partner for its customers. The portfolio of the medium-sized company includes high-quality sensor, identification and image processing solutions, including network technology and software.

With the Smart Reordering System, Balluff offers a solution for inventory reduction, digitalization of reordering processes and optimization of material flows.

Fill levels are monitored by sensors and critical stock levels are reported immediately. The replenishment process is triggered immediately and without manual effort—material availability is always guaranteed.

The exhibit shows how the Smart Reordering System can be used to fully automate material replenishment.
