FMTX is an international knowledge exchange platform bringing together more than 200 high-level executives who play an active role in the development of Industry 4.0 within their organisation.
Innovating supply chains, utilising artificial intelligence to improve productivity, the impact of the IIoT on systems management, digital twin technology, AR and VR in manufacturing and aftermarket simulation and 3D printing are just some of the innovations that will revolutionise how products are developed and produced.
3D printing helps in creating intricate designs which are difficult to make through traditional methods, saves enormous amounts of time during product design and development stages, and eliminates scrap
Digital design, simulation, and integration utilize tools such as computer-aided design, computer-automated design, and computer- aided engineering software to design, iterate, optimize, validate, and visualize a product or process digitally throughout the development cycle.
Open-source or open innovation refers to problem solving through soliciting ideas and opinions on products or services from both internal and external entities, thus helping in advancing innovation potential with a broader set of constituents.
Predictive Analytics provides manufacturers with a clearer view into their supply chain risks and market activity so they can assess consumer behavior, foresee challenges and respond to them proactively, increasing both efficiency and profitability.
Industrial robots are on the verge of revolutionizing manufacturing. As they become smarter, faster and cheaper, they’re being called upon to do more. They’re taking on more “human” capabilities and traits such as sensing, dexterity, memory and trainability.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning help optimize multiple processes in real time (i.e. control) and improve decision-making during manufacturing by automating the analysis of large, complex datasets through adaptive computing techniques.
The IoT concept involves connecting machines, facilities, fleets, networks, and even people to sensors and controls; feeding sensor data into advanced analytics applications and predictive algorithms; automating and improving the maintenance and operation.
Augmented Reality (AR) technology (e.g. adding computer vision and object recognition) makes the information interactive and manipulable by the user. By adding an overlay of relevant digital content and information, AR enhances the world around the user.
Advanced Materials refers to discovering and making new materials such as Lightweight, High-strength Metals and High-Performance Alloys, Advanced Ceramics and Composites, Critical Materials and Bio-based Polymers.
