Rehm opens its doors for Technology Day in Blaubeuren
The mechanical engineering company discusses production systems in the digital age
Every fifth company in Germany is already equipped with a smart factory, i.e. an intelligent production facility at which machines and systems are networked to an ever greater extent, so that all manufacturing sequences are centrally coordinated and, ideally, can even be automatically controlled, documented and traced. People, machines and products communicate with each other via the Internet in real-time throughout the value creation chain. The use of smart factories is a high-tech strategy and an integral part of the Industry 4.0 project, by means of which electronics manufacturers are able to react more flexibly to market requirements. Intelligent vision or long since reality? Venture to take a look at modern manufacturing of the future together with Rehm Thermal Systems at Technology Day on 29. September 2016 and be inspired to find out where the trip might take you!
With the motto “manufacturing in the age of digital transformation”, Rehm invites its customers and partners to Technology Day in Blaubeuren. This year’s event explores the advancing digital transformation in the world of electronics production as well as new solutions for networked production. Flexible software tools, digital transformation, line integration, and the possibility of automated system control are the subject of lectures and workshops. What possibilities does traceability offer? What does a networked factory actually look like? Which role does artificial intelligence play in this respect?
Exciting programme of events on 29 September 2016 from 9.00 am
Learn about the latest strategies in the world of electronics production! Alois Mahr of Zollner AG will present the possibilities of a networked factory. Afterwards, the experts from Rehm Thermal Systems will present the new ViCon software for the VisionX series, which offers numerous advantages in the areas of user-friendly operation and traceability. Other lecture subjects include line integration using Protecto, use of smart sensors in thermal systems, as well as a contribution by guest speaker Philipp Oliver of NEPTUNE Information Technologies GmbH on “deep learning” and what artificial intelligence means for Industry 4.0.
The afternoon will be dedicated to practical applications. The specialists will give live demonstrations of soldering and coating processes with innovative plant technology on site in a series of interesting workshops. The Rehm Technology Centre offers ideal conditions for this along with extensive testing and manufacturing equipment. Customers can look forward to the following sessions: 1.) New system control using ViCon software, 2.) Coating of electronic components with the Protecto system, 3.) Applications and trends in different soldering processes and 4.-) Drying applications and functional testing in production.
Rehm also invites its customers and partners to share their experiences at a get-together on the evening before the event from 4.00 pm.
Journalists and representatives of the press are cordially invited! We are also happy to provide contact persons and arrange interviews.
