In the morning, after the opening by Eric van Nispen, Imtech Belgium spoke about next generation SCADA at Boortmalt. Thijs Potters then gave a realistic presentation on the steps taken on the way to Industry 4.0 at Saint-Gobain Isover.
During lunch, visitors had the opportunity to network and visit the exhibitors' stands. In addition to all the culinary delights, they could also enjoy a fine treat prepared by a 3D food printer (Industry 4.0?) or a Wonderware biscuit baked on the spot (Industry 1.0?). The real techies feasted on something completely different, they especially looked out of their eyes in the equipped Wonderware 'control room'.
After lunch, Mark Jorritsma of Vrumona shared his experiences with the recently conducted Proof of Concept Manufacturing Analytics on the basis of which the capacity limitations of the syrup hall were analysed. A defined, relatively small project with great results. Clarifying in all respects.
Furthermore, this day all Wonderware products were briefly touched upon and explained and the roadmap was shared. As far as the presentation part was concerned, the day was concluded by an enthusiastic Jan Depping of Microsoft, who spoke about the possibilities that Azure offers for Cloud Manufacturing. It was mainly his vision for the future that got all visitors thinking.
We would like to thank all our sponsors and of course all visitors and the various guest speakers for another very successful edition of the Wonderware KnowledgeXchange. We hope to see everyone again next year!
