A number of leading suppliers from across the UK sheet metal industry are set to host an event dedicated to new technology and specifically the implementation of Industry 4.0, at Yamazaki Mazak’s European Technology Centre, Worcester.
Running from 29-30th November, the ‘Sheet Metal 4.0’ event will see a selection of companies and industry experts come together to showcase technology which can facilitate the next generation of sheet-metal production as part of a connected factory infrastructure. Organisers include tooling specialists, Mate Tooling Solutions; CADCAM software market leaders, Radan; used machine suppliers, JTES; as well as C-ONE press brakes; Haeger fastener inserters and Nitrocube nitrogen generators.
Visitors to the event will also have the chance to experience a selection of Mazak’s sheet metal cutting solutions in live-cutting action under one roof, including the OPTIPLEX 3015 FIBER II 6kW and OPTIPLEX NEXUS 3015 FIBER 3kW laser processing machines.
The laser machines will be set-up to work alongside a variety of peripheral systems from the exhibiting partners, including bending, fastener insertion, laser marking, N2 generation, tooling technology and next generation CADCAM software. This will give visitors a tangible insight into the efficiency benefits that can be achieved via a sheet metal processing cell fully integrated in line with Industry 4.0 design principals.
Those attending the event will also be able to experience Mazak’s MAZATROL PreviewG laser processing operating software, and new SMART BOX – which allows critical production data to be securely analysed and acted upon much closer to the source. As such customers can achieve improved connectivity, greater productivity and reduced downtime.To register your interest in attending the event, please visit: www.mazakeu.co.uk/sheetmetal
