Industry 4.0 - the continuing story

Steelmakers are constantly looking to improve the efficiency of their production processes and are relying upon increasingly sophisticated digital technologies to streamline their operations.

In such a fast-moving world, characterised by complex Internet-based manufacturing systems, Future Steel Forum 2018 is a must-attend event for steel professionals who want to unravel the mysteries and get to grips with the complexities of Industry 4.0. 

Future Steel Forum takes place on 6-7 June 2018 at the Sheraton Warsaw Hotel, Poland. This global steel technology conference will draw upon the unrivalled expertise of steel industry professionals, production technologists and academics to create an event designed specifically for steelmakers seeking a greater understanding of 'smart manufacturing'.

Delegates can expect ground-breaking papers on Industry 4.0 and associated 'disruptive' technologies that are affecting industry generally and steel production in particular.

"The goal of Industry 4.0 is the digital penetration of industrial business fields in order to improve the efficiency of production processes. People, machines and manufactured parts that are involved in this process all become interlinked. An additional factor apart from this interconnection is artificial intelligence. This allows intelligent networks to be created within which machines will learn and optimise themselves in the future. Humans participate in these networks. This allows them to access information about their machines and parts regardless of time and location, assess situations, and intervene where necessary." 

Dr Hohnhaus, Bystronic.
