A strong network between IT and mechanical and electrical engineering is needed so that well informed, knowledgeable decisions can be made in order to safeguard the UK manufacturing businesses of the future. Only companies who are willing to invest in modern automation and digitalised technologies will be at the head of the pack in this digital race.
The Manufacturer Smart Factory Expo and the accompanying TM Annual Leaders Conference will guide manufacturers in how to succeed in the transition to the smart factory as efficiently and cost effectively as possible.
Head of Exhibitions at The Manufacturer, Adrian Sell, says ‘It is vital that the manufacturing sector truly understands the reality and implications of Industry 4.0, in all parts of the business; from the boardroom to the factory floor. The interest in what Industry 4.0 technology can do for UK manufacturing is evident in the speed of adoption across manufacturing, and not only in specific sectors such as automotive as we have seen in the past”.
Many solutions are already available and world leaders will come together at TM Smart Factory Expo to display over 100 application examples. TM Smart Factory Expo is the only meeting place where CEOs, MDs, corporate management, management planning departments. CTOs, plant managers, production technology managers, CIOs and information systems managers can source the cutting edge technologies needed to drive their businesses forward
