Festo sponsors Digitalising Manufacturing Conference

Digital Man Conf


Festo is proud to be sponsoring the Digitalising Manufacturing Conference again on 4th & 5th November at the MTC in Coventry. Under the banner of 'Making Digital A Reality', the first day of the conference focuses on policy and national perspectives whilst day two looks at practical issues regarding digital manufacturing.  For the first time, Festo will be showing an Artificial Intelligence solution from our subsidiary Resolto – using anomaly detection and machine learning algorithms within a Festo dynamic display.


We will be on-hand to discuss developments as a user within our own production, as a leading provider of training equipment and courses and as an automation product manufacturer. Other displays include the our Industry 4.0 Cyber-Physical Factory and information on skills development and change management courses to help companies start on their journey.


Festo has engaged with the Industry 4.0 initiative from its inception and was appointed by the German government as a member of the steering group.  The company has taken an active role in the definition of the core standards such as the RAMI model and the Administration Shell.  Festo Didactic has been an active participation in the workgroups looking at the impact on skills and personal development as well as developing the Industry 4.0 Cyber-Physical Factory training hardware installed in many leading universities and training centres. Industry 4.0 training courses include strategic overviews for change managers and practical workshops for employees.
