100% Open-Source

More than 450 IoT platforms promise the same:

The connected factory

… and sell this as added value.

However, a connectivity solution has to be open and deployable for everybody

  • Independent of a machine manufacturer
  • For every asset in every smart factory
  • Independent of a platform provider
  • Industrial grade safety standards

Only an open source solution can offer these benefits!


A smart factory solution - suitable for everybody

That’s where IndustryFusion comes into play.
Every manufacturer should have the opportunity to make his factory smart. 
An intelligent, cross-vendor connectivity of the machines in a factory creates unprecedented transparency and forms the required basis to produce more efficiently, save resources and deliver the tools to strategically manage your company. But most important – it enables especially small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to remain competitive for generations to come.
The future of SMEs, therefore, lies in the transformation to smart factories. Nevertheless, over 80 % of all SMEs in Europe haven’t taken any comprehensive steps to push digitalization of their productions yet. This is mainly caused by the fear of excessive costs, vendor lock-in and a lack of capacity to deal with this issue in-depth. In addition, many SMEs don’t have a clear implementation strategy.


Connects any asset to any cloud…

IndustryFusion is the first open source smart factory solution offering manufacturer-independent connectivity across asset, factory and cloud platform. The simplicity of its implementation and usage is a key element of IndustryFusion, which empowers especially SMEs to benefit from the advantages of a large Industry 4.0 ecosystem.

IndustryFusion - the open and scalable smart factory connectivity solution

Cross-vendor interoperability

Cross-vendor connectivity between assets, as interoperability is being created through unified semantics.

Platform-independent operation

IndustryFusion can be deployed on different embedded hardware, servers and cloud infrastructures.

Use of established & open standards

We don't want to reinvent the wheel. Therefore we rely on established standards for communication and architecture.

Independent deployment

FusionOS connect, FusionOS and the Fusion Semantics Manager are designed together, but can also be used independently from each other.

Open APIs

IndustryFusion allows the integration of 3'rd party platforms via APIs and seamlessly integrates existing infrastructures.

Modular and scalable

No matter if you are going to integrate 1, 100 or 1.000 assets - IndustryFusion is suitable for factories of any size.

Edge, Hybrid or Cloud-Deployment

IndustryFusion can be hosted on-premise or in any desired cloud - the factory owner has the choice. Edge or cloud - in either case, all functions of a smart factory can be utilized.
