Industry 4.0" reflects the model of intelligent and self-organizing production. The fourth industrial revolution offers a multitude of new opportunities - digitalization will not only change value creation processes, it will also create new business models and perspectives for employees. So what does "cleanroom technology 4.0" mean ? The CleanRoomNet cleanroom network first tackled this topic 2 years ago under the title "Die Reine 4.0": we develop solutions for the digitalization of cleanroom technology from planning to construction and operation.

Follow exciting aspects of cleanroom technology 4.0 in our panel discussion:

  • Cleanroom 4.0 - just an abstract term or is there already more to it ? What is the current status?

  • What is the benefit for me as a customer and what added value can the data deliver?

  • What are the prerequisites for Cleanroom 4.0 and are there also limits and obstacles?

  • What innovations can we expect in the next few years?
