What will a foundry look like in 10 years?
The designation ‘‘4.0’’ is often used in reference to the next phase of the Industrial Revolution (the “Fourth Industrial Revolution”) and generally expresses the impact of smart manufacturing and the implementation of technology in manufacturing.
This conference will focus on how digital manufacturing is affecting all areas of the casting process today, and how this will change the foundry of the future. Key seminar topics are data collection and management, data-driven decision-making, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, virtual reality, wearable technology, robotics, automation, and cyber security, as well as the related issues of workforce development, recruiting, and training. The conference will include foundry case studies demonstrating how implementation of data collection, automation, and digital technologies have changed and improved operations today.
