Industry 4.0 Congress, the largest conference on advanced factories

Once again, Advanced Factories will host from 9 to 11 of April the Industry 4.0 Congress, the largest conference on advanced and digital factories in southern Europe. Barcelona will become again the center of the Industry 4.0 as a meeting point for more than 12,000 professionals who come to know the latest industrial developments from more than 170 international speakers and more than 300 exhibiting companies that present their most innovative solutions for the manufacturing sector.

The goal of the congress is to get together all the industrial professionals, from SMEs to large production plants established in our country, with the latest technologies and innovation to improve their competitiveness. It is for this reason that all those experts, technicians, entrepreneurs, universities, research and innovation centers can present until February the candidacy of their projects, ideas, success stories or solutions that can help industries become more competitive through new technologies, better productive processes and customer service, or through new models that get their factories closer to the Industry 4.0.  In the last edition of Advanced Factories, more than 270 proposals were presented at the call for papers of the event.

 The topics of the Industry 4.0 Congress are structured around 8 vertical forums where the aeronautical, food, automotive, railway, health, steel, textile or construction industries will have their own agendas with success stories, applications and specific solutions for their sector.

In addition, the conference program will present success stories and real applications of new industrial technologies such as additive manufacturing, 3D Printing, machine-tools, robotics, artificial intelligence, IIoT, Big Data & Analytics, Blockchain, Cloud Computing, Simulation, On-demand manufacturing, Machine Learning, Digital Manufacturing along with trends and new models in energy efficiency, predictive maintenance, circular economy or quality controls among many others. This is the place-to-be by any industrial professional that is facing the challenge of digitize its factory in a highly competitive global environment.

Advanced Factories brings together more than 200 leading companies in machine tools, industrial automation and new technologies such as ABB, Amada, HP, IBM, INFAIMON, Igus, Rexroth, Schunk, TCI Cutting, Trumpf, Universal Robots, Kuka, Festo or Rockwell Automation, who will present their latest solutions during three days at the CCIB in Barcelona.
