Automation creates completely new possibilities in production. With the Smart Automation exhibition, Europe’s trade fair for industrial automation technology will take place this year.
In the future, interdisciplinarity, lifelong learning, interdisciplinary knowledge transfer and intercultural competences will be promoted more strongly in the future, such as the impact of Industrie 4.0 relevant qualification requirements on the education landscape. The head of training and further education states: “The systems are developing rapidly and these changes are not only relevant for the technician or the specialist – everyone is confronted with it in some form to deal with these new things.
Closer Cooperation Between Companies And Technical Universities
In order to meet the constantly changing requirements, closer cooperation between companies, universities and technical colleges is needed above all. One way to train students closer to the practice, so-called learning factories. In the pilot factory of technology; they work in a realistic environment on machines, and the manufactured products , components manufactured by 3D printers are actually used. In the companies themselves, employees are increasingly benefiting from e-learning modules, including VR simulations.
See And Experience
Production lines, automation and networking are increasingly converging on the production lines. The organizer of the exhibition also takes this development into account. In its exhibition formats Smart Automation offers intertool in the new connectivity for industry, the great potential of the technologies is made visible to interested trade visitors. Also medium-sized companies, which will adapt their work processes only in the coming years, should be addressed here. In addition to exhibits and technical information, the visitors are also offered practical examples – an insight into all product areas of industrial automation technology: factory and process automation from the component level to complete solutions and integrated automation tools. The combination of production, automation and IT at a trade fair is unique in this form. Exhibitors and visitors are also offered side events and a stage program. A showcase will deal with the future of quality control.
