Smart Manufacturing is envisioned as the future of manufacturing. Today, manufacturing is becoming highly automated and IT-enabled or simply put, "Smart". While automation is fairly well established in manufacturing, by linking it with intelligent devices and a strong IT backbone, manufacturing systems are moving towards autonomous systems. Therefore, automation is the first step towards implementing smart manufacturing.

The range of automation tools vary from simple, low-cost equipment to highly sophisticated and expensive systems. Appropriate level of automation reduces cost in manufacturing not only through increased productivity, but also improves quality through consistent and reliable production. However, for any automation project to be successful, several aspects such as selection of automation system, system integration and organizational environment needs careful consideration.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing a 2 day programme on Smart Automation - Key Driver for Smart Manufacturing on 27 - 28 December 2019 at Bangalore. The programme will focus on various elements of automation and the economic benefits derived through applying automation in the manufacturing process. Participants will get an overview of the application of automation and technical information for implementation in their organizations.

Focus Areas

  • Overview of smart automation
  • Low Cost Automation and mechanisms for Smart Manufacturing
  • Smart sensing elements for automation
