“Workflow Innovation through Digital Manufacturing”

According to our motto for Hannover Messe 2017, we invite you to learn how we are responding to the demands of the industry and how you can benefit from digital workflows for all stages of the manufacturing process, from product planning to assembly, from quality inspection to delivery and logistics.

Join us at the world’s largest international B2B industrial tech fair showcasing the latest trends regarding IoT and Industry 4.0, with over 200,000 visitors and 6,500 exhibitors from 70 countries in 2016. We will be present with our latest solutions around IoT and Industry 4.0 as well as with pioneering concepts that will shape the industry in the future.

Do you aim to innovate your workflows?

This is just an outlook what you will experience on our booth:

  • Innovations in data collection, analysis & sharing
  • Pioneering monitoring solutions
  • New inspection tools and methods
  • Optimisation of picking & assembly processes
  • Newly developed 3D AR Head Up display to assist safe driving



Bringing innovation to manufacturing through “Visualization, Analysis, and Sharing”
Digital Manufacturing by Konica Minolta

We detect the real state and movement of people and objects, visualize and share this data, and thereby "visualize real problems at the workplace", which will drive innovative efficiency improvements for work across the entire supply chain, as well as quality improvements.

Exhibit solutions

We demonstrate solutions to benefit activities across the entire supply chain for each work process.

  • Consistent supply chain management via quality data sharing
  • Automation and advancement of inspection

We propose benefits such as efficiency improvements and high quality control accuracy throughout the supply chain through the automation of visual surface inspection, color management with color/gloss inspection of automobile interior and exterior parts, and new non-destructive inspection technology.

  • Receiving and shipping management with camera and ID

The demonstration will let you experience the benefits of our solution from arrival to shipment, such as improved safety and reduced errors thanks to RFID, combining car number authentication via camera with linkage of package data.

  • Using wearable devices to assist employees at work
  • Working together with robots

The demonstration will let you experience the benefits of collaboration between robots and people, the use of wearable devices to support work and collect data, and the use of analyses to bring innovation to the manufacturing process, from picking to assembly.

  • Improvement of line safety and operation rate via status monitoring

In a demonstration using the entire booth, we will illustrate the benefits of a state monitoring system that collects and visualizes group attribute information and action data from workers, thus ensuring the safety of on-site employees and contributing to an optimum configuration/layout design for improving the operation rate.
