Besuch der Messe für Automatisierungstechnik
Zu Gast auf der SPS/IPC/Drives Messe in Nürnberg
Für die FSMT1 begann der Messebesuch am 25. November 2014 mit der Zugfahrt nach Nürnberg und weiter mit der U-Bahn zum Nürnberger Messegelände. Nach einer kleinen Besprechung des Organisatorischen und einem Gruppenfoto ging es auch schon gleich los. Die Schüler konnten je nach Belieben die einzelnen Hallen durchstöbern.
Die 117.800 m² Ausstellungsfläche bot Platz für 1602 Aussteller, welche umfassende Informationen über Produkte, Innovationen und aktuelle Trends der Branchen lieferten. 56787 Besucher strömten vom 25 – 27. November auf Europas größte SPS Messe. Im Vergleich zu den Vorjahren spiegeln die Zahlen einen leichten Rückgang wider, doch hat die Qualität der SPS/IPC/Drives unserer Einschätzung nach nicht gelitten.
Für uns (die Schüler der FSMT1) war die Messe sehr informativ, da wir am Anfang unserer Technikerausbildung stehen und wir uns dahingehend über die aktuellsten Automatisierungstrends informieren konnten. Zusammenfassend lässt sich sagen, dass es uns erstaunt, wie fortgeschritten diese Branche mittlerweile ist und wir sind gespannt, was uns nächstes Jahr aufs Neue erwartet!
