Two simultaneous workshops in the 09:00-09:30 session
- ALLIANCE – 3D printing and Waste Free Society
Presentation available soon
Mr. Jean-Claude BIHR, CEO, Alliance
Powder Injecting Molding (PIM) is a net shape or near net shape direct manufacturing process that combines powders metallurgy and shaping by plastic injection. This innovating technology enables to shape micromechanical parts in large quantities with very complex alloys (nickel base and others), with the guarantee of a very higher material and energy efficiency, compared with other technologies. Associated with the Lean, it is the assurance of a manufacturing that minimizes the wastes, thus with optimal global costs.
- Operation Technology Convergence for Today and Tomorrow
Mr. Martin KELMAN, Senior MES Consultant, ATS International
Current industry trends for more integrated manufacturing systems have driven the need for the two worlds of Information Technology and Operation Technology to converge. The manufacturing domain now includes application and interfaces like PLM for manufacturing, ERP, MES, EMI and a myriad of shop floor systems. ATS has used the principles of manufacturing 2.0 to define and deploy a manufacturing service bus that meets the challenges of IT security and policies and delivers a configurable, flexible solution for the aerospace industry. With one eye on the future, the manufacturing service bus is also complementary to the ideas of the internet of things and industry 4.0. Are these ideas games changers, or can we build on existing knowledge?
