Start Transforming Your Operations Without Leaving Your Home

The digital technologies that enable smart manufacturing – and allow users to improve productivity, efficiency and safety – change every day, so we must keep learning and networking.

That’s why I’m excited to be a part of our first VirtualConnect event – it’s all of the education with none of the travel. And it’s free.

The online event, scheduled for 12 May, offers real-time access to technical specialists, peer-to-peer networking, and a digital show flow so we can learn together and explore endless opportunities to solve strategic and operational challenges.

Addressing Your Challenges

As I talk to manufacturers, machine builders and partners about their biggest challenges, questions often to fall into two categories – so that’s how we’ve organized this online experience.

Smart Machine Journey

Learn how using smart devices can help you capture data, make better decisions that increase productivity and optimise operational efficiencies. This track includes:

  • Smart sensing devices for better asset utilisation
  • Smart safety devices for more responsive operations
  • Smart motor control devices for increased productivity
  • Smart controls for optimised operational effectiveness

Digital Transformation Journey

Technologies like augmented reality (AR) and digital twin are creating new opportunities for people just like you to increase manufacturing performance by leveraging smart devices to expand operations. This track focuses on:

  • Why AR is driving manufacturing transformation
  • How digital twins can help build better systems
  • Independent Cart Technology (ICT) solutions
  • Turning raw data into useful information

The tracks are open – you can choose what matters to you. Here’s the agenda so you can decide how to spend your time.

As one of the program sponsors, it’s my goal to help you gain insights into how these technologies can offer you real value, right now.  No matter where you are on the digitalization continuum, there is something here for you.  

During and after the event, plan to connect with peers from manufacturing and IT, operations and maintenance, to share best practices and apply what you learned.

Let’s Take a Virtual Walk

We will feature a variety of digital booths and also welcome our automation partners to give you the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the products and solutions featured in the VirtualConnect presentations. Technical specialists and presenters will be on-hand throughout the event to answer your specific questions through virtual chats.

Registration for the 4-hour event is open now. Sessions will be recorded and available to registrants after the event. Learn more about this event – and others we plan over the next few months. I look forward to ‘seeing’ you there.
