The Smart Way to Industry 4.0 with PROFINET Based Technologies
Co-organized by PROFIBUS & PROFINET International (PI UK) and the European Interreg Project INCASE (“Industry 4.0 via Networked Control Applications and Sustainable Engineering”), 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.
Opening with a keynote address given by PI Chairman Karsten Schneider introducing PI’s current and developing technologies for Industry 4.0, the event will cover key application areas such as mechanical handling and logistics, robotics, automotive engineering, electrical and electronics assembly, control systems and energy management, utilities, pharmaceutical, packaging and printing.
Part of the day is with parallel tracks, so that you can either refresh your knowledge as a beginner in PROFINET or as a more experienced user find new ideas for applications. Hence, these events are highly recommended both for newcomers and people who have attended our previous events.

Supported by demonstrations of actual tools used in configuration and maintenance, these events focus very much on the practical aspects of using PROFINET and IO-Link, from system design and safety considerations through to fault-finding and maintenance. The events will, therefore, be of great value to Designers, Production/System Engineers, Instrument Technicians/Engineers and C&I Engineers involved in the design, operation and maintenance of modern automated factories and process plant.
