Topic Track: Quality
Session Topic: Maximizing Manufacturing Productivity in the Information Age

Smart Manufacturing requires a balance of automation (to reduce manpower) and process control (to ensure quality). Initiatives such as Industry 4.0 promise better control of operations by having more information available at your fingertips. To be valuable, this data must be accurate and actionable. With a focus on production of metal components, join Renishaw as we discuss techniques and tools that increase the productivity of any manufacturing operation.
