In our Solutions Theatres, manufacturers will be learning in a new conference-style everything about the most crucial manufacturing trends from world-class manufacturers and versed technology experts.

The four Solutions Theatres ‘Digital Transformation’, ‘Industrial Automation’, ‘Industrial Internet’, and ‘Smart Factory’ which are located in each technology zone at the event will be free to attend for all Smart Factory Expo visitors.

One of the Solutions Theatres, which is sponsored by B&R will address a variety of issues around the broad topic ‘Industrial Automation’.

In this context, around 20 exciting and inspiring speakers from eminent companies will each be speaking 20 minutes in a conference-style about smart factories, automated engineering, intelligent plant floors etcetera.

Alan Conn, managing director at B&R UK and Ireland, said: “We are excited to be sponsors for the Automation Solutions Theatre at the Smart Factory Expo as we are keen to support the education and further development of IIoT professionals within the UK manufacturing sector.

“B&R continually invests 15-20% of its earnings back into R&D efforts and therefore our customers benefit from being early adopters in automation technology.

“From the worlds faster servo drive, to the most rugged industrial transport system, to the most scalable edge controller portfolio, we can help bring the UK manufacturing sector through the fourth industrial revolution.

“Based on the platform created by The Manufacturer publication, we believe Hennik successfully attracts the right target audience to the Smart Factory Expo for our messages around IIoT/4IR/Smart Factory.

“It brings together a qualified group of Automation, IT, and Operation decision makers that are joining their events with an open mind and ready to make the best use of today’s technologies.”
