How to achieve quantified improvements in manufacturing performance? The future is data driven, connected, cybersecure, virtual, robotized and more...Presentations in this innovation stream will share some great examples of pivotal features and tell the story of industry leaders envisioning the future of manufacturing. 

10.45 - 11.15 Bart van Dartel – Senior R&D Manager at Vanderlande

Flexible infrastructures in intralogistics

Decreasing costs of local intelligence give rise to ‘infrastructureless’ solutions such as AGV’s and mobile robotics. The use of (Mobile) Robotics and AI will change the intralogistical solutions and solve future business and consumer needs. In this presentation Bart will give insight in the challenges for R&D and recent achievements for Vanderlande.

14.30 - 15.00 Marcus Kremers - CTO at Airborne International

Automated solutions for advanced composites

Production volumes in the Space, Aeronautics and Marine industries are increasing fast. Companies are looking for ways to radically reduce cost and touch labour, minimise the footprint and use of material, and improve the time to market. To meet these needs Airborne is building a suite of automated solutions for the manufacturing of composites. Marcus will share some examples and reflect on challenges.

14.30 - 15.00 Guido van Gageldonk – CTO at Unit040

Digital Twins the do’s and don’ts

Perhaps you have seen the term pass by: a Digital Twin. It sounds like a simple concept: Developing a digital variant of your physical product. But it is not that simple. Because what makes a Digital Twin a product that offers added value? And how do you use this within your business? Guido will further discuss this need in the presentation.

15.30 - 16.00 Ramon Antelo – Director World Class Center Advanced Manufacturing at Altran

A human dimension at the core of factory transformation

For the first time in the industrial age, many are saying that technology is no longer a limitation to development. It is now up to the ability of people to adopt and capitalize on technologies that will determine the speed at which performance will evolve. What is important for companies to be successful in making the transition to the factory of the future and what is the role for humans as creators of value, architects of change and accelerators of innovation?
