Print, online, mobile – Welcome to the world of A&D

Automated processes, safe procedures, products of impeccable quality – these are the challenges that keep companies across all manufacturing industries on their toes.

A&D-Automation & Digitalisierung has established itself as the competent technology magazine for suppliers and users of sophisticated automation technology for a long time. It is known as one of the leading magazines for industrial automation focused on the German-speaking markets in Europe.

A&D transfers expertise and knowledge from suppliers to users, along the entire automation value chain. A&D makes it easier to deploy innovative technology, to assess the benefit of new products and systems and to identify deficits in efficiency.

All A&D content focuses on: Fascination. Technology. Print, online, mobile.

A&D penetrates the world of automation and increases efficiency and quality - for a significant lead on the way to a sustainable industrialized society. Multi-channel and on all devices.

Machine builders, plant designers or project managers – these experts may have different levels of knowledge. However, sophisticated automation engineering plays a pivotal role in the daily tasks of all of them. A&D is the reliable source of information for both sides – engineers and managers.

As professional magazines have become largely interchangeable, one of the prime concerns of A&D is to be unique, with attention and credibility being the key factors of success. To meet this demand, we leave the beaten paths of the professional magazine landscape and break new editorial ground.

As a multi-channel media brand, A&D not only provides print products but also a range of unique digital information offers that are available online and mobile on all devices, without any limitation.
