HARTING expands AutoID solution business

Claus Hilger, Managing Director IT

Behind buzzwords like “industry 4.0” and “integrated industry” lies the desire to constantly make industrial production more efficient and to prevail in the face of global competition.

The HARTING Technology Group’s products help customers to achieve such process optimization at all levels. The company is now further expanding its solution business. “The foundation of our new company, HARTING IT System Integration GmbH & Co. KG, which commenced its activities on January 1, 2013, enables us to provide our customers with AutoID solutions from a single source,” remarked Claus Hilger, Managing Director of IT Services at HARTING. The term AutoID refers to all processes concerning the automatic recognition of objects. HARTING is focusing on RFID (radio-frequency identification) technology here but also offers its customers alternative solutions, such as barcode-reading.

HARTING IT System Integration covers all areas of AutoID from individual components, such as transponders, readers and software, through to complete system implementation, staff training and service provision. The solutions are deployed in industrial production and goods logistics. “We also utilize the technologies within our own company in order to continually improve our processes. AutoID components also enable the digital enhancement of our connectors as additional functions can be provided thanks to the incorporation of transponders,” explained Managing Director Claus Hilger.
