Smart technology for the smart factory

Taking place at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool on 15th-16th November, the Smart Factory Expo 2017, has been hailed as the UK’s biggest showcase for the fourth industrial revolution.

COPA-DATA will be demonstrating its intelligent automation software, zenon, at booth A14 of the show. Alongside an exhibition of smart factory technology, the Smart Factory Expo also includes a series of seminars from industry experts. COPA-DATA will lead a presentation discussing ‘Return on investments in smart factory implementations’ at the show’s automation theatre at 11.00am on 15th November.

At its dedicated booth in the automation zone, COPA-DATA will be demonstrating its smart factory software, zenon, which has been used in the automation industry for almost 30 years and is designed to control, monitor and optimise automated machinery and equipment, increase production performance and plant-wide visibility.

Visitors to the COPA-DATA stand will gain a comprehensive understanding of how software can be used to implement smart manufacturing.

“Industry 4.0 is no longer a future trend,” explained Martyn Williams, Managing Director at COPA-DATA. “For many manufacturers, investing in smart technology is already at the heart of their strategic agenda. However, one of the biggest concerns for manufacturers is guaranteeing an acceptable return on investment after smart factory implementation.

“At the Smart Factory Expo, we will demonstrate how manufacturers can embrace smart technology, using our intelligent automation software, zenon. We would also like to invite manufacturers to visit the booth to speak to our automation experts for any advice and guidance they may need on implementing smart manufacturing technology.”

The Smart Factory Expo has been created in partnership with Government experts and Industry 4.0 solution providers to create the world’s biggest showcase for the fourth industrial revolution.
