Smart Factory Expo Success for Project PREVIEW
Factories of the Future project PREVIEW felt right at home exhibiting at the Smart Factory Expo in Liverpool on 15-16th November (the UK’s largest showcase for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR)). The event is at the forefront of displaying the many innovative and advanced technological products and services, from artificial intelligence to robotics, and PREVIEW was no exception. The project, a location based wireless technological solution to optimising the injection moulding process, was a hit amongst the 4000+ visitors over the two-day event, with experts such as Dr Abu Saifullah at the stand in the Innovation Alley. PREVIEW was on display hosted by UK-based consortium partners Smithers Rapra.
Attendees of the exhibition were able to have their questions and queries answered by the PREVIEW team in the Innovation Alley. The array of visitors from a number of different companies in the industry were impressed by the benefits of the wireless advanced predictive system which would help the efficiency, waste and energy consumption of injection machines.
The Smart Factory Expo event is the final exhibition for PREVIEW, having already attended other advanced technical and engineering events such as Interplas, Advanced Engineering and Equiplast. The concluding event for the project is the PREVIEW workshop, a one-day event taking place on 23rd November 2017 at consortium partner Promolding’s facilities in The Hague, The Netherlands, where attendees will experience first-hand the benefits of PREVIEW through a series of presentations, demonstrations and feedback activities.
