Webinar: Machine upgrading 4.0

Chances are very high that you have machines and installations in your production environment that are in need of an upgrade. The machines have proven their quality but do not offer the technical capabilities or energy efficiency that we expect from a modern state-of-the-art machine park.

As a result of the industry 4.0 living lab ‘Machine Upgrading 4.0’, Flanders Make and the machine builder Vintiv joined forces with VLAIO to produce an inspiring whitepaper.

The general objective is to inspire a broad group of companies, to advise and assist them with the cost-benefit analysis, the determination of a suitable approach, the choice of technology, the human-machine interaction and finally the implementation.

In order to explain this white paper through a number of practical cases, we are organizing the webinar Machine Upgrading 4.0 on Tuesday, April 27 from 11 am to 12:30 pm.
