HARTING Technology Group

RS Components is a leading distributor of Electrical, Electronic and Industrial Components and has a long-standing partnership with HARTING. Therefore, it is no surprise that when they were discussing the launch of their robotics campaign, HARTING were the first manufacturer to come to mind. HARTING have always strived to integrate our own products within the production process and the use of robots within our factories is increasing, creating a more automated factory in line with Industry 4.0 trends.

David Pike of RS Components flew out to Germany to speak to Dr. Franke, the General Manager of HARTING Applied Technologies about our use of robotics within our factories. Whilst there he was introduced to the HAII4YOU application (HARTING Integrated Industry 4 You). The HAII4YOU factory demonstration unit is amassed of three production cells, each with their own control system. The unit shows individually customised Han-Modular connectors being manufactured in a conceptual mass production environment. The implementation of HARTING’s products within the manufacturing system shows how they can be integrated on a larger scale to create a fully functional ‘smart’ factory from individual products right through to complete solutions.
