At a high-powered conference at the Manufacturing Technology Centre in Coventry entitled Digitalising Manufacturing 2018: Grasping the Opportunity, manufacturing leaders from across Europe will tell delegates that the Fourth Industrial Revolution opens up huge potential for UK manufacturers, but companies have to invest in skills and intelligent automation to reap the benefits.
The conference, at the MTC's Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre in October, will aim to demystify digital manufacturing and give manufacturers support on how to progress the digital journey in their own organisations, based on previous experiences and lessons learned.
The conference follows on from a similar conference last year, which saw the launch of the Made Smarter initiative. Progress on the initiative will be assessed at the 2018 conference with keynote speaker Professor Juergen Maier, chief executive of Siemens UK.
Also speaking at the conference will be Marcus Burton, director at Yamazaki Mazak and a member of the Made Smarter leadership team.
The Digitalising Manufacturing 2018 conference takes place from 29-30 October.
