Fascinating lectures on all three days of the fair

Some 550 exhibitors will be presenting their products, innovations and services at the 15th FMB – the supplier show for mechanical engineering, which will be opening its doors on 6th November 2019. The three-day lecture programme, which has been subdivided into a highly topical range of subjects by the organiser, will provide a more in-depth insight into individual fields of technology.



The motto of the programme on day one of the show is “Maintenance of the Future”. Speakers from well-known companies such as igus, Pirtek, Sonepar, Turck and Zimmer will be reporting on maintenance concepts with innovative tools including mixed/augmented reality and machine components with integrated condition monitoring. The issue of machine safety (CE mark and risk assessment) will also be addressed in two lectures on this day.

The focus on the second day of the fair will be on “Digitalisation and Industry 4.0 in Practical Applications”. The topics of the lectures include the interconnectedness of automation and IT, smart services and sensor-to-cloud solutions. The talks will be held by experts from companies such as Open Mind, Sick, SolidLine and Wago.

How can machine efficiency be increased with computer-based controls and Industry 4.0? How can safety and security be blended successfully? And how does intelligence find its way into plastic machine elements? These and other questions will be discussed by specialists on the third day of the event. In addition, an expert on the issue of Industry 4.0 will provide an overview of current trends with regard to digital transfor-mation in mechanical engineering.

The programme will be led by professional presenters on all three days. There will be an opportunity at the end of each lecture to pose questions and engage in discussions. In doing so, the FMB enables the visitors to take away first-hand specialist knowledge and provides them with ideas and inspiration for the use of innovations in the face of digitalisation. This makes the FMB the ideal (exhibition) site to obtain some valuable guidance concerning this complex issue.
