Free-to-attend training opportunity – June 26, Manchester.
Presented by PROFIBUS and PROFINET International and hosted by Endress+Hauser, this event addresses the key practical issues arising from the use of digital communications technologies in automated manufacturing and process industry applications, with particular attention to Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Covering key application areas such as control systems and energy management, pulp & paper, chemical, utilities, pharmaceutical, mechanical handling and logistics, robotics, automotive engineering, electrical and electronics assembly, packaging and printing, it focuses on the practical aspects of using PROFINET, PROFIBUS and IO-Link, from system design and safety considerations through to fault-finding and maintenance.

ABB’s Switch to Robots seminar

02 July, 2019
Location: ABB’s Milton Keynes training site
Contact: 01908 350300
If you’ve ever considered adding robots to your production line but don’t know where to start, then ABB’s Switch to Robots seminar could be exactly what you need. Taking place at ABB’s Milton Keynes training site on Tuesday 2nd July 2019, the seminar will provide a simple step-by-step guide to introducing robotic automation to the factory floor.
Starting with the question ‘how do you know if you need a robot?’, the event will cover the key aspects of developing, specifying and financing a robotic installation. ABB will demonstrate how to develop the right solution for your needs, and how to calculate the potential return on investment that can be achieved in different types of applications.
There will also be the opportunity to learn from the experiences of an SME manufacturer who has introduced robots to their factory floor, plus the chance to get hands-on experience of operating a robot in ABB’s Robot Training Centre.

Smart Industry Conference: Automotive

12 September, 2019
Location: National Conference Centre, Birmingham
Digitalisation presents huge opportunities for British manufacturing over the next decade. However in the UK there is an enormous information vacuum, and many SMEs need urgent guidance in clear and concise language in order to prepare for this transformation, so as not to be left behind their global competitors.


The Smart Industry series of Conferences will address and unravel the vast array of conflicting information around 4IR, discussing the practicalities, technologies and issues surrounding transition and implementation of digitalisation in manufacturing across key market sectors in clear and concise language.


The conferences’ main aim is to provide a practical, jargon-free opportunity to those starting out on the digital transformation process, to experience a complete smart roadmap, highlighting the incremental stages of the 4IR journey covering all aspect of the digital transformation.
