Internet of Things Experience for Manufacturers

Tuesday, July 20 - Wednesday, July 21, 2021 | Chicago, IL

MetalForming magazine and the Precision Metalforming Association are proud to deliver what metalformers and fabricators need to know to successfully leverage emerging IoT (Internet of Things) technology.

IoT for Manufacturers is a one-of-a-kind event designed specifically to educate floor supervisors, manufacturing engineers and managers, IT directors, and others working in small to midsized metalforming and fabricating plants on the coming wave of digital manufacturing and plant-floor connectivity.

Experts will explain how ERP/MRP software allows critical data gathered on the plant floor to be deciphered and delivered to managers, enabling strategic decision-making. And, with sensors and machine controls evolving at a rapid pace, don't miss this opportunity to stay current with these critical, IoT-enabling technologies.

Successful use-case studies will describe how IoT technology helps metalformers and fabricators improve OEE and drive quality and productivity improvements. In addition, attendees will be given a roadmap for planning and executing an IoT plan.

Sign up and take a leadership position among metalformers and fabricators in benefiting from all that IoT offers now and in the future.

More information for the conference will be available soon.
