Your Metals Industry Resource

Automation Fair At Home will feature a number of sessions, exhibitors and showcase new products and solutions for the metals industry. 

Sessions: 

Automation Fair At Home offers a wide array of sessions - from interactive hands-on labs, product and technology sessions, to DX Strategists presentations. We narrowed down the session list to those applicable to your specific industry. 

Here are the top five sessions we think will benefit anyone in the metals industry. 

Product and Tech Session
PT04 - The Urgency of Cybersecurity: Take the Next Step

Faced with a range of obstacles, manufacturers are changing how they approach cybersecurity. Cybersecurity has always been one of the most important pillars in digital transformation, but over the past several months, its importance has heightened. In this session, hear from cybersecurity leaders on how the lessons they have recently learned will impact the way manufacturers approach security going forward. Learn how to drive cybersecurity priorities and investments with an outcome driven approach.

Product and Tech Session
PT33 - What is Your Digital OEE Strategy? Innovate to Improve Operational Performance

Does your OEE solution report data, but lack insight? To make real improvements, you need to understand not just how your assets are performing, but why. Your workforce needs real-time data with actionable information that makes them more aware and efficient, so they can make your plant more productive. Learn how a scalable OEE strategy can help your workforce to visualize, benchmark and optimize assets and information as you implement your digital transformation using your existing control system and data you already collect.

Product and Tech Session
PT58 - Resistance is Futile and Costly: Embrace Modernization

Many organizations are modernizing for competitive gains. Therefore, corporate IT teams are being tasked by management to secure their plants to protect production. They don’t always approach this task as carefully as needed. This shares real customer experiences from early, mid, and late stages in the journey that apply regardless of your industry.

DX Strategists
