ome people think of
smarter computing
as some type of magical, fantastical
concoction. The truth, however, is
far from that.
Indeed, true smarter
computing, defined not just in
terms of software and hardware,
has practical applications that
many organizations are using to
increase competitive advantage.

locations in 24 countries and
trading partners in more than 50
nations. Established in 1923 by
Arthur Hehl, the firm has morphed
from a one-person shop to one
of the world’s top manufacturers
of injection molding machines,
robotic systems and customer- and
sector-specific turnkey solutions—
all manufactured in Lossburg.
“We have quite a range of
machines, including hydraulic,
