Turn digitalisation in metalworking into a success story

Industry 4.0, which stands for the far-reaching digitisation of production, is what many companies are striving for today. Including companies with a metalworking activity. Digitalisation, standardisation, automation, ... require first and foremost, efficient and controlled machining processes. This is what we learn from the existing digital success stories. In a new webinar series, we will therefore first focus on the basics and then make the link to digitalisation.

Many companies, including many metalworking companies are striving towards Industry 4.0, or a far-reaching digitisation of production. However, although digitalisation will provide insight into the possibilities for optimising the (machining) processes, it is not in itself the solution. Added value can first and foremost be created through physical machining and not with digital zeros and ones. In addition, you should also ask yourself whether you really need a comprehensive digital system to tell you that your changeover times are too long, the wrong tools are being used or tool breakages are too frequent.

Digital success stories appear in companies which first of all manage their (machining) processes well, from programming to machining. It certainly involves some standardisation, which is possible not only in series production, but also in the manufacture of single pieces.

Webinar series

Every day we are confronted with companies wanting to take a step towards digitalisation, while they do not (yet) have the right basis to do so. Therefore, in a new webinar series, we want to link basic knowledge of machining with successful digitisation.

Since everyone is busy, we will keep it 'short and sweet': one webinar a month of no more than 45 minutes, with a focus on one concrete theme and a practical assignment to be applied immediately. The first topic will be the interpretation and use of tool wear. After that, we will organise webinars on the choice of cutting conditions, accuracy of machining centres, understanding dynamic behaviour, etc.

Participation in these webinars is free of charge but advance registration is required.
