Everyone in manufacturing is talking about Industry 4.0.
You've probably heard terms like cobots, digital twins, Internet of Things, AI, AR, and VR. But what do they mean? How do they work? How do they integrate with each other? Most importantly, how can you use them in your business?
We’ve partnered with Beca, EMA and LMAC to bring these game-changing technologies to you and answer all of these questions. Here’s your opportunity to touch, see and use the technology upclose.
During the quick-fire session you’ll meet Coco the robot. Coco’s part of our mobile table-top chocolate sorting production-line, and shows you some of the key Industry 4.0 principles in action.
Joining Coco is an expert Beca Digital Consultant who’ll help you place your chocolate order and talk you through the individual bits of technology that deliver the sweet treat to you. Together you’ll explore the data being gathered and utilised behind the scenes, and jump into virtual and augmented reality to carry out remote maintenance of the line.
You’ll get the chance to ask all of your Industry 4.0 questions, and discuss potential real-world applications of the technology.
