Smart Manufacturing Experience features the emerging technologies and innovative products that are driving the manufacturing industry forward. This experience puts attendees face-to-face with cutting edge technologies that can help ensure the future of their business. These advanced technologies fall into one of 8 smart manufacturing disciplines:
Smart Manufacturing Disciplines
Additive Manufacturing (AM)
Manufacturers use this disruptive technology to design and produce finished parts.
Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning
Engineers use computer systems to reason over collected data and make inferences about the future.
Virtual Reality (VR) / Augmented Reality (AR) / Mixed Reality (MR)
Superimposing a computer-generated image on a user’s view of the real world for the purpose of maintenance, product design, training and simulation.
Automation & Robotics
This technology enables accuracy and increased productivity in various manufacturing areas.
This is the practice of protecting systems, networks and programs from digital attacks to maintain data integrity and privacy.
Manufacturers analyze raw data captured from their manufacturing equipment to draw conclusions and make more-informed business decisions.
Industrial IoT: Sensors to Platform
Manufacturing facilities use the internet, with a focus on machine-to-machine communication, big data and machine learning to increase efficiency and reliability in their operations.
Business & Workforce Transformation
Driving the cultural and technological changes that are necessary for manufacturing companies to take advantage of smart manufacturing initiatives.
