Lantek Sheet Metal Solutions is proud to announce a new series of webinars launching on October 25th, aimed at helping metal fabrication companies understand and achieve Industry 4.0. Industry 4.0 is considered the fourth industrial revolution, and is defined by advanced automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. It includes cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things and cloud computing. The result is often referred to as a "smart factory”.
“When you get down to it, we cut and fabricate metal”, states Lantek USA Director, Adria Haines. “With descriptions like “cyber-physical systems,” Industry 4.0 appears difficult to put into practice. Our clients often feel Industry 4.0 is for high-tech automated factories with white floors and flying fork lifts. They have seen it become popular quickly and don’t want to invest valuable time on fads. That is why I am so excited about this series. I will explain how Industry 4.0 can help metal fabricators benefit from becoming Smart Factories, in a hands-on, step-by-step way. It starts with getting digital. Most of my clients are surprised to discover they are already on track. Lantek has 30 years of experience digitizing factories and integrating systems, which helps dispel the “fad” concerns.”
The webinar series kicks off on Wednesday, October 25th at 11:00am Eastern time with part 1: “Developing a Digital Strategy for Industry 4.0”. Lantek will begin by identifying the path to digitization, and explore the steps toward successfully achieving the next Industry 4.0 milestone. “We have many real-world examples to offer our audience, including cultural and technological challenges that were experienced by our customers, and solutions that helped them achieve success”, added Haines.
In the first 45-minute webinar, attendees will learn:
- The milestones involved in the digitization process
- Where they are on the road to digitization
- How to take inventory of a company’s digital assets
- The critical next step to advance digitization progress
