GEBHARDT Fördertechnik

Introducing Next-Generation Intralogistics

From systems planning and delivery to ongoing management, GEBHARDT Fördertechnik offers its customers end-to-end support for transport systems, assembly systems, and technology for storage, sorting, and distribution. Founded in 1952, the company now aims to go much further for its customers in the future –with smart manufacturing.

Using SAP Leonardo technologies, the conveyor technology specialist based in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, developed its new platform Galileo IoT. This is based on the SAP Cloud Platform, and was created using the SAP IoT Application Enablement toolkit and the SAP Asset Intelligence Network. Galileo IoT allows customers to evaluate data on all components at a facility. This helps GEBHARDT’s customers see which gears need to be replaced soon or monitor the temperature of each motor, for example. In this way, customers are able to avoid failures, plan maintenance better, and save costs. GEBHARDT can even use the platform to develop a new business model, moving away from being a simple supplier and instead toward being a comprehensive service provider for intralogistics.
