In a digital age of smart phones, apps, and computerized everything, it was only a matter of time before the manufacturing industry was influenced.
Industry 4.0 is the new buzzword for the combination of industry and the current Internet of Things (IoT) technology. What is it? Is it here now and what can it do for your injection molding process? This is not a new technology, nor business discipline. Thanks to advancements in technology over the past decade, It is in fact a new approach to achieve results that weren’t possible 10 years ago
In this one day symposium, molders, engineers, managers and equipment buyers, through technical presentations and live/hands on demonstrations, can learn and experience what 4.0 technology can do to improve their molding process, including:
- reduce set-up time
- eliminate set-up errors
- reduce training time
- integrate firewall for highest cyber-security
- drive towards ever tighter process control
