(SOUTHFIELD, Mich., May 4, 2022) — Over 60 leading manufacturing companies will converge on Pittsburgh next month to spotlight the latest transformative technologies at Smart Manufacturing Experience 2022. The in-person event will help small to medium manufacturers (SMMs) leverage the power of these advanced technologies to improve their bottom line and advance their operations in real time.

The event, scheduled for June 7-9, 2022, at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, is sponsored by SME, CESMII, AMT and AMI, which have partnered to meet the technology needs of SMMs. The sponsors work in collaboration with industry, academia and government agencies to bring solutions that drive the advancement of smart manufacturing operations.

“Smart Manufacturing Experience brings together the top minds in smart manufacturing, including keynote speakers, technical experts, thought leaders and fellow manufacturing professionals who already have adopted these technologies and have a wealth of knowledge to share,” said Robert Willig, executive director and CEO of SME.  “This knowledge transfer is setting the stage for the industry to adapt faster than ever and to accelerate the pace of our economy.”

“At Smart Manufacturing Experience you’ll see how companies are already making smart changes, training their workforces and enjoying greater ROI as a result. With more than 60 exhibiting companies scheduled for this year, you’ll see how this technology can make a huge difference for your bottom line, too.”
