Lettera di Natale

As the years go by, it’s necessary to end the year with an open letter to all the people that helped us to achieve what we sometimes believed to be impossible.

tamarri storia

Those have been complicated days, weeks and years. Complicated, as we are used to be present, close and ready, therefore this uncertainty that everyone has faced was something new for us.

It’s not the first time we face difficulties, and we know how to fight, overcome obstacles and solve problems, even the most challenging ones.

However, the spreading pandemic situation in which we found ourselves was abnormal, unpredictable and we perceived it as highly threatening. In some moments we felt lost and a bit frightened, but we never lost sight of our vocation for work and innovation, even in that dark time.

We are among the lucky ones that during this hard time never stopped. We continued to work and develop constantly in the name of technology and professionalism in order to provide our customers with the best quality and service.

Nevertheless, none of the above could have been possible without a solid and irreplaceable help. We are addressing the industrial world, the warehouse and logistic sector. The world that allowed all of us to receive on time everything we needed, from the essential spare part e to work, to the food on our tables.

They are the same that, now that Christmas is approaching, deliver us the certainty to have food to put on our Christmas tables, the presents under the tree and the warehouses always supplied! 😉


To them and to all our customers that never stop trusting our knowledge and expertise goes all our gratitude.

🎁 Merry Christmas to all of you from Tamarri s.r.l, a Christmas full of that serenity we all deserve! 🎄

The Hannover Fair warms up its engines towards artificial intelligence.

The Hanover Fair, which is dedicated to industry, is the exhibition event point of reference for technology in the world and is ready to attract the interest of experts. The focus for the year 2020 will be Artificial Intelligence.

A reference point

Fiera di Hannover

Hannover Fair, one of the most important exhibitions dedicated to technology for industry, is working to complete the preparation of the annual exhibition scheduled from 20th to 24th April 2020.

Even for 2020 this extraordinary event promises to be exciting and, as usual, will not disappoint the expectations of industry experts.

It is assumed that, once again, Forum 4.0 will retain the leading role it has already earned for its success in previous editions: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, remain and (for a little while longer) will remain, the topics most followed by industry managers worldwide.

Martin Ruskowski’s point of view

In the last edition, in particular the convention entitled “From Industry 4.0 to Artificial Intelligence in Production“, held by Prof. Martin Ruskowski, was the most popular.

He is one of the leading experts, already known in the environment as director of the Innovative Factory Systems Division at the German Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI).

During the edition of HANNOVER MESSE 2020, with Forum Industry 4.0 (which falls within the exhibition sector “Automation, Motion & Drives”), there will be practical demonstrations of the opportunities of new technologies.

In fact, international experts will show, through real test benches and advanced technologies, which opportunities derive from the digitization of value chains and products.

An extraordinary programme

Hence there will be daily conferences to attend which will also be a great starting point for a comparison with the main players in the world of economics, science and politics.

But, if artificial intelligence and the digital transformation of industry are to be the main themes, there will be further important contributions; such as the industrial Internet of things and the exposition of the advantages of Industry 4.0 especially concerning small and medium enterprises.

Horizons 4.0 … and beyond

And again, important social issues will be addressed, such as the relationship between man and work in the context of Industry 4.0, which have already been covered during the previous editions with great success among those present, as well as debates on predictive maintenance, predictive analysis and business models B2B platforms.
