In this situation, examples taken from practical applications are just as helpful as discussions with experts and people in positions of authority from other companies. The FMB – the supplier show for mechanical engineering, to be held in Bad Salzuflen from 6th to 8th November 2019, provides a forum and information platform to engage in discussions on digitalisation topics.
The show offers the visitors various opportunities to broaden their knowledge of Industry 4.0 in practice. Well-known exhibitors including Beckhoff, Siemens, Phoenix Contact, Turck, Pilz and Wago are among the leading driving forces of digitalisation in the entire industry. Moreover, many smaller, specialised enterprises will present solutions and services for defined areas of application suitable for Industry 4.0. The spectrum extends from development to production, assembly and intralogistics through to preventive maintenance.
Visitors can also expect to obtain ideas and inspiration from the programme of lectures on the second day of the exhibition. “Digitalisation and Industry 4.0 in practice” is the topic here, and the working titles of the registered lectures clearly demonstrate that the speakers will be covering a wide area of expertise: from the ondemand procurement of customised CNC components to the digitalised transfer of knowledge and new ways of collecting data in automation through to preventive maintenance with data goggles and “mixed reality”.
