The digital transformation
Digitalization calls for new thinking. And the networking of bright minds.



Schaeffler is present wherever anything moves, whether in the internal combustion engine, the wheel of a high-speed train, or the drive of a machine tool. Today, we are able to acquire valuable primary data from our solutions. Now it is time to turn this data, which is in fact the main raw material of the digital age, into information. To this end, we are linking data from products and processes consistently with each other. It is not only intelligent products and efficient processes that are our goals, but also innovative services

Digitalization is changing the entire economy and its traditional processes. Today, digital assistance is a core component of value added in purchasing, manufacturing, logistics, research and development, and distribution as well as in the human resources and finance functions. The key objective is connecting the physical world and the digital world in order to increase the amount of value added.

To this end, the company has set up a new department dedicated to promoting and driving digitalization within the Schaeffler Group in 2015. With its own “Digital Agenda”, the technology group will actively tackle and help shape issues of the future such as Industry 4.0, internet of things, big data, cloud, analytics and new business models.

Schaeffler is shaping the digital future.All vehicles and machines will in future be linked to the Internet of Things. Schaeffler is therefore greatly promoting digitalization. Learn more!
