PI UK is proud to announce its role as an official supporter of The Smart Industry series of Conferences, a series of events launched, in the words of the organisers, to “address and unravel the vast array of conflicting information around 4IR, discussing the practicalities, technologies and issues surrounding transition and implementation of digitalisation in manufacturing across key market sectors in clear and concise language.”
The conferences’ main aim is to provide a practical, jargon-free opportunity to those starting out on the digital transformation process, to experience a complete smart roadmap, highlighting the incremental stages of the 4IR journey covering all aspect of the digital transformation. And that, too, is one of our main aims with PROFINET together with IO-Link, already well accepted as the backbone of Industry 4.0
This year they are presenting Smart Industry Food & Beverage, Smart Industry Automotive and Smart Industry Aerospace, all of which typify the industrial segments that rely on our technologies in their smart, connected factories and process plant. And next year, there’s the Smart Industry Expo 2020, proclaiming as its’ theme “The Future of Integrated Automation”, which is exactly what PI stands for.
Just like our own seminars, these conferences address the key practical issues arising from the use of digital communications technologies in automated manufacturing and process industry applications, with particular attention to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0.
We look forward to working with them.
