Learn how to get up and running with Industry 4.0 and IIoT
- Wrexham, North Wales, 26 September
- Cambridge, 11 October
These free-to-attend seminars will address the key practical issues arising from the use of digital communications technologies in automated manufacturing and process industry applications, with particular attention to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0
The Cambridge event is sponsored by a European Interreg Project named “Industry 4.0 via Networked Control Applications and Sustainable Engineering” – aka INCASE, while the Glyndwr event is sponsored by Glyndwr University and will feature a presentation from cyber security expert Dr Paul Comerford.
Covering key application areas such as mechanical handling and logistics, robotics, automotive engineering, electrical and electronics assembly, control systems and energy management, pulp & paper, chemical, utilities, pharmaceutical, packaging and printing, they focus on the practical aspects of using PROFIBUS, PROFINET and IO-Link, from system design and safety considerations through to fault-finding and maintenance.

Market Leading Technologies
With nearly 80 million nodes installed worldwide, PROFIBUS, PROFINET and IO-Link are truly market leaders, providing state of the art digital communications addressing all the needs of manufacturing and process industries, significantly lowering capital expenditure on installation, commissioning and maintenance. They offer unprecedented integration of automation, control, monitoring and safety systems using standardised and widely supported communications and networking solutions.
These seminars are ably presented by specialists from PI UK member companies, Glydwr University and INCASE project partners. Attendance is free of charge to pre-registered delegates from the User community, i.e. companies that own, operate, design, build or maintain automated plant. These events will provide delegates with an excellent networking opportunity and the ability to speak to our experts whom, we promise, will not force you to buy anything.
The events will also feature an exhibition of the latest PROFIBUS, PROFINET and IO-Link products from PI-UK member companies, Glyndwr departments and INCASE project partners.
