Advanced Engineering responds to UK’s pressing need to embrace Industry 4.0

Advanced Engineering 2017 has announced its return to the NEC from 1-2 November 2017 with the addition of a new show zone – Connected Manufacturing – providing the annual UK engineering gathering with a dedicated new arena to exchange Industry 4.0 knowledge, ideas and technologies.

The fourth industrial revolution will see companies massively boost productivity, increase flexibility and product customisation, achieve localised manufacturing and shorten lead-times. It has been identified as a critical driver of UK manufacturing growth and an area which companies must invest in if the UK is to develop its competitive edge.

Designed to increase the understanding of and investment in Industry 4.0 by the UK’s manufacturing sector, Connected Manufacturing will be the UK’s only trade exhibition and conference in this sector to reach out to such a range of engineering professionals, from areas as diverse as: automotive; aerospace; rail; marine; civil; motorsport; healthcare; plus oil and gas and other process industries

In addition to over 35 leading suppliers showcasing the latest wave of developments and solutions, Connected Manufacturing’s free-to-attend conference will present the latest Industry 4.0 case studies, opportunities and technologies. These will be delivered by technology, IT, software and data experts, industry associations, consultancies, and companies already successfully gaining the competitive edge from connecting vital new technologies like: AR/VR; 3D printing; big data; cloud computing; robotics and more.

Alison Willis, Advanced Engineering event director, commented: “We have experienced such an increasing number of visiting engineers and directors from process engineering, manufacturing, design and more, who are eager understand and connect the technologies and information so vital for their global competitiveness.

“So, we know there’s a huge appetite for us to take the lead with this issue and help the UK be at the forefront of the fourth industrial revolution. Having this new zone sitting right at the heart of the show – among some 700 exhibitors and thousands of visitors – will ensure we connect all those who need to be talking to, learning from and doing business with each other in the Industry 4.0 era.”
